The Sensory Trail

The hallway sensory trail is used by many people and and for many situations. Younger kids and elementary teachers use it most often. The trail is used for the kids to get up and moving so they can focus on schoolwork later. This sensory trail is also used by students that aren’t in class, usually before or after school, to get ready and focused for the day, or sometimes just for fun.

Kelly Weiler wrote a grant to create the new hallway sensory trail; she was also the one that set up the trail. The trail is used for students to get a “brain break” and was put in place because we often have indoor recesses for the elementary.

Jill Jansma uses the trail to help the kids with sensory problems. This helps those kids focus more on their schoolwork than on other things in the room. The trail is also used for kids that go to the sensory room in the mezzanine if they high school hallways are full. The sensory trail won’t replace the sensory room but is a nice alternative since it is closer to the elementary. It is located on the ground level elementary music wing.
