Projects from past years
NEED has been funding NPS grants for 13 years. These programs inspire kids to learn creatively and think critically- and none of these programs happen without the support of NPS teachers, staff, parents, and sponsors. THANK YOU for everything you do to support NPS programs.
Grant approved: Hokki Stools
November 15th, 2017
Mrs. Neumann - 6th grade math teacher at NMS
"Since the start of the school year the Hokki stools have provided alternate seating for not only children who have difficulty sitting still, but for all children. Some students request a stool. Other students who do not request it, find when they are placed at the desk with the stool, they like the alternate seating. Let's face it, sitting in a hard seat all day is not optimal for anyone, never mind a sixth grader. I can see students moving around on the stool while sitting at their desks and working. I have had special needs students come and borrow the stools to use when they are testing or working in another room. I am very happy with the Hokki stools. Thank you for providing me with the opportunity to give my students another seating option.
