“We Support Our Schools” March 2023
A2Z Personnel and the Drive 107.9 are happy to award Michelle Welch with the “We Support Our Schools” grant for March 2023! Michelle Welch is the Mental Health Counselor at Florence School. She is proud that Florence has this resource to provide to their students.
With the grant, Michele intends to buy sensory “fidgets” to help keep students attention focused on their tasks using acceptable tools. These include zipper bracelets, textured sticks, and Lava tiles. Michelle wants to create a Sensory Wall using the Lava Tiles. She says these fidgets are key for those with anything from test anxiety to depression, helping students reset.
In addition, Michelle wants to work towards a Recreation Room, where students earn the reward of gaining access to this area after the goal behavior is met.
Michelle’s department also provides Basic Needs such as tooth paste, soap, deodorant, and shampoo for students. Snacks are provided to students and the “We Support Our Schools” grant will assist in covering all these areas as well. Currently, this department relies on personal donations and has benefited from the Rapp Family Foundation.
Thank you Michelle Welch for all your positive contributions to the Florence School students! We’re excited for you to make great use of the We Support our Schools grant!
