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.
