October is Dropout Prevention Month

October is Dropout Prevention Month

October was recently named the National Dropout Prevention Month. This month we are dedicated to calling attention to the need for everyone to make an effort to prevent school dropouts. We are determined to work to make Canada's dropout rate decrease significantly. You might be thinking what could Accent ever do to decrease the number of dropouts in schools? 

Well, when we hear students say things like their classroom "felt like a second home", we know that we can make a difference. By creating a learning environment in which the needs of every student's personal learning style is met, they feel included and they are given the right tools for them to succeed, we can help make school a place that students want to go to every morning. 

So...What can you do in your classroom to help prevent dropouts? Here is the answer: our Student Engagement Starter Kit. Check it out here:http://accentenvironments.com/files/Student_Engagement_Kit_Flyer.pdf.  This package is a way to begin creating an inclusive learning environment. In this package, we offer the following tools: 

~ 2 Eclipse Standing Student Desks
          - Having the ability to stand and learn increases student engagement by 7 minutes per hour! 
          - The Sensory Edge of the desk top provides sensory input when needed to allow the student to direct              their attention to learning rather than being   distracted
          - Built to the strictest industry quality standards and approved by the ANSI-BIFMA testing
          - Legs adjust from 30" - 39" to allow for standing height to be set for all ages


~ 3 Analogy Rockers
          - Rocking is a passive, calming motion that allows the user to focus on learning

~ 3 Hokki Stools 
          - The dome shape of the underside of this stool requires the core of the human body to be engaged in              order to balance properly 
          - Having an engaged core uses the excess energy those high energy learners have, as well as stimulates              increased blood flow for the shorter attention span, lower energy students
