This week’s One Class At A Time grant recipient is Heidi Herbolich of Rossiter Elementary School.

She is helping her students work out some energy while staying focused in the classroom.

Jana Garza and David Peretto of First Interstate Bank were joined by KXLH to surprise Herbolich in her classroom with a $250 check.

The money from the grant will be used to buy bouncy bands which attach to the bottom of a student’s chair so they can bounce their feet on it.

Herbolich said young students can have a lot of energy and the bouncy bands allow for non-disruptive movement while still learning.

“They need to move around and with not having a lot of acreage in that classroom that ability to bounce their feet gets out a lot of energy,”

Herbolich also wants to thank One Class at a Time for providing grants to teachers and making a difference in Helena classrooms.

For more than a decade, First Interstate Bank and MTN have partnered for the One Class at a Time grant.

The mission of the grant is to foster educational opportunities for local teachers and students.

A panel of retired teachers and school officials select the grant recipients from a pool of submitted applications.
