27 Oct KCTR Graduate wins $500 Grant to create “Calming Corner” at J.A. Rogers
Congrats to Kathryn Zubia, winner of The Foot Spot’s 2017 grant competition! On October 25th, Kathryn and her students at J.A. Rogers Elementary received a $500 check from local business The Foot Spot. Kathryn plans to use the grant funds to create a “calming corner” in her classroom, a feature that will assist students who need space to decompress from external factors that may limit their ability to fully engage in learning. Kathryn’s calming corner supports trauma-informed education practices and will be a great addition to all of the quality support students are already receiving at J.A. Rogers in the Kansas City Public School District.
