Foundation Gifts Pedal Desks to All Highcrest & WJHS Classrooms

Due to the resounding success of Meghan Espinoza’s 2017 Gripp Grant for pedal desks in her 6th grade classroom, the D39 Educational Foundation has gifted Highcrest and WJHS up to $5000 to purchase approximately 144 under-desk pedal units to be used in classrooms across the two campuses.  This is approximately two units per homeroom and two units for each comprehensive needs classroom as desired by the teachers. Ms. Espinoza found that students who used the pedal desk for a short period in class were able to increase their concentration and productivity. Once they got their fidgets out, they could stay on task and effectively learn.
