Classrooms In The 21st Century
Innovation comes to our middle school classrooms in the form of new desks and movable white boards.

Stability balls also provide new seating options for our elementary classrooms. Washington school teacher Cindi Abramov introduced the balls in her classroom in January 2012. Their success has been undeniable and other schools have followed suit. Using stability balls in the classroom improves posture, strengthens the core of the body, and helps focus attention and on task behaviors throughout the day. It also allows for movement within a learning environment that is not disruptive, all the while improving handwriting.
