EXCITING NEWS Blades Family!!

I wanted to share some amazing news with you concerning our Blades Bobcat Booters PTO (BBB) and what items they recently approved for purchase at Blades!!

They approved a total of $6,500 to be spent on our students, staff, and school community!!

Here is the detailed list:
- $4,000 is to be used by staff to buy more flexible seating options in their room. This is an exciting shift in thinking that has had tremendous impact in our classrooms! Teachers will be adding more wobble stools, tables, bean bags, bouncy seats, lap trays, etc. 
- $1,100 will be used to buy a Water Bottle filling station to one of our water fountains by the gym. 
- $600 will be utilized to purchase 30 new headphones for our computer lab that students will be able to use during computer class.
- $600 is being used to help set up "Sensory Baskets" or "Calm Down Baskets" in all our classrooms. Blades staff has been going through training on how to support students who are upset, anxious, and "just not ready to learn". Providing "Sensory Baskets" for classrooms has proven to be very successful in helping to regulate our students' emotions to get them "ready to learn".

We are so lucky and blessed to have a such a supportive and caring community of families!

All of this is due to YOUR donations during our Bobcat Mile!

Thank you so much for all you do for our kiddos!!
