School Specialty Partners with FedEx and United Way to Install Sensory Pathways in Two Elementary Schools

We just can’t stop helping! Recently, School Specialty teamed up with FedEx and the United Way to install sensory pathways in the hallways at Kenneth Murphy Elementary School and Oak Crest Elementary School. This project continues our dedicated efforts to create inspiring learning spaces in local schools and nurture growth in all students.

Sensory pathways are becoming a popular interactive tool for high-traffic areas in schools. They can provide a movement break for students between classes or even a needed brain break during class. The unique patterns and their placement provides stimulation to the brain while promoting peaceful hallway transitions. The necessary muscle movements and spatial awareness help students improve their focus on motions and movement.

Sensory pathways also help with schools wanting to promote inclusive practices. For students with special needs, these sensory tools provide needed vestibular (movement) input to aid in self-regulation.
