The current student population is 30% Native American, 65% white non Hispanic, 1% Asian Pacific, 3% black and 1% Other Pacific Islander; 65% of students qualify for free or reduced lunch and 17% of the students receive services of special education. Our School District has a strategic goal is to enhance an educational culture that promotes student achievement for all students.

My Project

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement. Flexible seating encourages a more energetic, engaged, eager, and peaceful room of students.

Students feel empowered by having control over their environment.

Flexible seating allows students to choose where they and allows them to change their location and positions as needed.

Children need to move. Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength. It a helps keep young minds more alert and focused.

Flexible seating encourages students to share both encourages them to take turns in different locations and with different seating options.

Flexible seating allows students to quickly and easily pair up, work in small groups, or discuss as a whole class.

Many flexible seating options stimulate students’ sense of touch. This type of stimulation can help children focus and process information. Sensory input is especially helpful for students with ADHD and ADD.
