Mission Manor Elementary School Teacher Kelsi Redding wanted to create a more welcoming environment for her active students. When she requested some special seats for her students Rincon Rotary jumped at the chance to provide her class with 'wobble cushions' and 'fidget toys' so that students could release some nervous energy and focus on learning.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary LOCAL program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary LOCAL can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
To find out more about Rotary LOCAL and how it may be able to help you, go to rotarylocal.org. Primary support for Rotary LOCAL comes from the Rincon Rotary's annual fundraiser, The Tucson Taste of Chocolate
