When a school bench supports academic success
At the beginning of April 2022, 13 wiggle stools donated by the Foundation to the Sainte-Madeleine school in Vaudreuil-Dorion were delivered and given to the students previously identified.
These stools are designed to allow movement and thus help students maintain their attention in class. The Foundation jumped at the chance to contribute to the academic success of these children.
The children will be able to use their bench until the end of their 6th year. After that, they will be asked to return it so that new students arriving at the school can also use it. The parents of the beneficiary students were also informed of the source of the donation. They were very happy to hear the good news!
We received a message from Patrick Hudon, special educator at the Centre de services scolaires Des Trois-Lacs, expressing his gratitude and that of the students, their parents and the staff of Sainte-Madeleine School. This gesture helps 13 children, 13 families, 13 classes today. And it will support the academic success of many more children in the years to come.
We are sharing this information with you because we want you to know the impact of your donations. It is our turn to thank you for supporting our mission.
We also wanted to share the photo below, a moving testimony of the children who benefit from the wiggle stools. As we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words! This message left by the children on the board in the special educator’s room.
13 times thank you to our donors!
