This innovative grant will provide Alphabetter standing desks for some upper elementary children who struggle to learn in a traditional manner at Webster Hill Elementary School. These students have difficulty staying focused on learning and as a result often must get up from their seats and move around which can be quite disruptive in the classroom. The standing desks allow the students who need movement the option to stand during classroom lessons, which increases time on task and greater academic success.
