Hawes Elementary Students Learn About Active Sitting and Focused Learning Thanks to a Grant from The Valley Hospital and The Ridgewood Education Foundation

 
  

April 16, 2013 – Students at Hawes Elementary School recently participated in a new program called Good Posture + Active Sitting = Focused Learning, thanks to a classroom grant funded by The Valley Hospital and The Ridgewood Education Foundation. 

Six cube chairs were purchased for the self-contained kindergarten classroom at Hawes Elementary School.  The chairs strengthen core muscles for activity, stabilization and endurance, and their use fosters improved focus and attentiveness, compared to standard classroom chairs.

The adults pictured in the photo are (from left to right):  Jamie Pepper, Hawes Elementary School Special Education teacher; Kristin Walicki, Ridgewood Education Foundation Trustee; Dolores D'Andrea, Ridgewood Schools Physical Therapist;  Dr. Paul Semendinger, Principal,  Hawes Elementary School Principal; and Megan Fraser, Vice President of Communications & Marketing, The Valley Hospital.
