Waverly Elementary School now offers a beautiful sensory path that provides sensory breaks for its students, including those with special needs. The path stretches out with colorful graphics on seven areas of the school building’s floors and walls, enabling students to take a “brain break,” develop motor skills, stimulate the senses and refocus for learning.

A team of more than 25 staff members and families installed the path this spring. It became a reality thanks to Waverly teacher Andrea Brandt, along with her husband, who supported the project through their daughter Gretchen’s memorial fund.
