NEW Flexible Seating at Alfred Vail

Alfred Vail would like to thank Amanda Wolff for including Alfred Vail in the generous donation of new flexible seating in our homerooms! This was made possible by a grant from the MEF. These chairs will reduce sedentary time and allow children to move minimally while also working and remaining engaged.
