In an effort to provide our younger students with more calming strategies and supports, we are asking for a volunteer with basic sewing skills to create weighted lap pads for Maternelle classrooms.
Here is an example: Weighted Lap Pad. We need small sizes with washable covers. The materials used are rice or plastic pellets plus fabric.
If you are able to donate the materials in-kind, we will give you an additional .5 hrs of volunteer time per pad.
Thank you for helping us in an effort to bring calm and peace to our students throughout the year.
To get involved, please contact Diana Platas, Lower School Counselor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
