Students with special needs at Melrose-Mindoro Elementary School will have additional resources thanks to the Tools For Schools award.
Stacy Spors is the latest recipient of the $500 award from WXOW, SSE Music, and Brenengen Auto.
Spors is a special needs teacher and says many of her students struggle to stay focused during class.
The award money will go towards buying a weighted blanket, “fidgets” which are small objects that help students stay focused, and chairs that allow students to move while remaining seated.
"I'm so excited that I'm able to purchase items for these students to be successful in the room," said Spors.
WXOW, SSE Music, and Brenengen Auto help one teacher or class each month.
