All funds raised through our READ A THON will be used to purchase equipment for the new "Minds in Motion" room on the first floor of the Academy. This room is being designed by the staff in all grades, in an attempt to incorporate movement and fitness into classroom learning situations. Research has shown that for many students, this kinesthetic approach is a beneficial strategy. Our goal is to purchase several pedal desks or pedal stools, as well as some other items to create such an environment.
