About this Campaign
Help us bring alternative seating to our library.
Many classrooms offer students a variety of seating options that engage their body and their mind. Things like wobble chairs and stools work great in classrooms but in the library, due to the various sizes of students and community members who use the space, a special solution has to be found.
While visiting a school in the Lake Stevens School District, I saw students using rocker chairs. https://virco.com/healthy-movement
I would like to bring these rocker chairs into the library at Crystal Springs Elementary.
These chairs provide moderate movement and can improve focus and concentration. The rocking motion soothes the brain and facilitates concentration along with the ability to think logically, which provides overall better cognitive processing. Rocking helps students who are experiencing a brain state of high arousal to be able to transition to a much more calm brain state to enhance his/her ability to problem-solve
I believe these chairs will encourage healthy movement, without detracting from educational objectives.
Each chair will cost approximately $120 and will be available to all 600 Crystal Springs students for years to come.
