The Ascension Fund recently recognized Jessica Paz, a teacher at St. Amant Primary School, for her creative grant, “Alternative Seating.”

Paz purchased standing workstations, stability ball chairs and saucer chairs with her $1,000 Ascension Fund Teacher Grant, made possible by the Lion Copolymer Endowment.

The alternative seats offer students the ability to move and be active during class instruction time.

Ascension Fund Board Member Jason Bonaventure and Executive Director Jennifer deFrances recently visited Paz’s third-grade science class to see the students use the alternative seats.
