One Class At A Time: Whittier Elementary School

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

As part of our One Class At A Time program, KRTV and First Interstate Bank employees Heather Loucks and Billie Jo Groskreutz recently presented Whittier Elementary School literacy and math specialist Kelly Silk a check for $250 to buy alternative seating for her students.

Silk says there are a lot of different seating options, like wobble chairs and bouncy chairs.

She says these chairs help strengthen the kids core muscles so that they can sit up straight. 

"I have a lot of kids that will rock back and forth in just a traditional chair with four legs which is unsafe. And some kids just can't sit still so I'll allow them to stand but I think having alternative seating or if they want to sit in a traditional chair they can," said Silk.

Silk added that allowing kids to move while they learn can help them concentrate.
