Shannon Turnage and her Second Grade class at Fruchthendler Elementary receive desk cycles from Rincon Rotarian James Mandolini.
Fruchthendler Elementary second grade teacher Shannon Turnage requested desk cycles to help ADHD students stay on task, focused, and burn energy while sitting at their desks. Her request cited numerous studies about the efficacy of these items in aiding learning goals. The Rincon Rotary was impressed with this research and purchased two desk cycles for her class.
