Jan 2017: The HF-L Education Fund Provides a Little “Stability” to Middle School!
Through the resources from the HF-L Education Fund, we were able to supply three, colorful and fun stability balls for the Middle School. The balls help the students keep focus and structure and maybe, if they are lucky and working hard they might get to bounce on them just a little.
“The whole theory with the brain is that when your body’s engaged, your brain’s engaged,” Miller, an out of district Elementary Teacher said. “I call it actively sitting. They’re maybe moving their legs a little, wiggling some. But their upper body, they’re focused on writing, on the teacher. It really works.”
This was a matching grant so Middle School PTA also supplied 3 for classroom use.
Oct 8th: HF-L Homecoming Parade
The Education Fund had a wonderful time participating in the homecoming parade and handing out apples to the crowd. We were happy our float made it through the rain. Thank you to the Apple Farm for donating the apples, Katy Wright for the great music, and Josh’s Landscape for letting us use their facility to assemble the float out of the rain. We have a wonderful community!
