Two juniors at Paw Paw High School are currently working on a project to add sensory walls at the Later Elementary. Emma Adams and Anna White are enrolled in the Cadet Teaching Program at Van Buren Tech Center. They work three days a week and learn from their mentor teachers. From those experiences, the two have decided they want to make a change and provide a designated safe space for students to go to when they are overwhelmed and need to calm down.
They are raising money to build and donate sensory walls to our Elementary schools. The walls will have various activities that can help students calm down, regulate their emotions, and hopefully return to class ready to learn. Emma and Anna sold flowers at the Later Elementary holiday concerts.
