On Friday, April 13, the Learning for Life program began building stand-up desks for classrooms. Principal Nancy Doll authorized the order of 26 desks to be split among math, English, world language, special ed, tech ed, and health. They will be distributed equally among the classrooms to give all students the ability to learn in any way they choose.

Brandon Kline, Learning for Life student said, “Making the desks is like a fun break in my day because I like to build and make things.”

These standing desks will help all students to do work using an alternative method to always sitting still. One of the major benefits to having a stand up desk is that it will be able to cater to students’ needs and provide more options for kids who don’t work effectively in other ways.

The Learning for Life program is an educational program that prepares students for the complexities of life. It focuses on anti-bullying, education systems that work for the individual student.

“The standing desks are beneficial to students because not every child can work efficiently sitting at a desk,” said Mrs. MaryCate Henry, Learning for Life teacher.
