About this Campaign

Elliott Elementary is a Title 1 school in the heart of Lincoln, NE. The students, families, and staff at Elliott are passionate about education. Elliott's minority student enrollment is 74% and our families speak 23 different languages. A number of our families have moved to the United States within the last 3 years.

Elliott has a longstanding history of prioritizing resources needed to support all students and meet their individual needs. An area of focus in serving our students continues to be providing flexible seating options to meet individual learning styles. Varying options allow for students to focus in different ways, increasing student confidence and success with engaging as an active participant and learner.

In our community we have piloted a few standing desks and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our teachers and students. We have found that the option to stand can increase focus for students and the swinging bar below the desk allows for movement that does not disrupt the learning community.

We are requesting $3,500 plus cost reimbursement to purchase 5 additional standing desks to support the scholars in our learning community.
