‘Space Exploration’ sensory floor added to West Elementary

There is a new sensory floor at West Elementary School.

"Space Exploration" was a collaborative effort by teachers Jennifer Bell, Trisha MacKellar, Yvonne Pingitore, Lori Potter, Carrie Schultz, and Shanna Zasowski.

Sensory floors provide opportunity for creative movement while improving focus and motor skills such as coordination and balance.

This is the second sensory floor at West Elementary. Physical education teachers Bell and Potter created a sensory floor outside the gym last year and continue to make changes and additions to that area.

An outdoor area is also in the works.
