Williams Elementary School Uses Let’s Go! Mini Grant to Create Sensory Path

Williams Elementary School (WES) has been awarded a $416 Let’s Go! Mini-Grant from Northern Light Inland Hospital to support their Let’s Go! Work. Let’s Go! 5-2-1-0 is a state-wide obesity prevention initiative working with communities to create environments that support healthy choices.

WES will be using the grant to create a sensory path with decals in their school hallways for all grade levels. This sensory path will give students an opportunity to release energy and tension by travelling through a series of physical movements like hopping, skipping, balancing, jumping and stretching while improving their ability to learn.
