The DeKalb Central Foundation supports the DeKalb Middle School's sensory program! The purpose of the sensory program is to provide tools for ALL students to help them remain focused and on task in class. The funds from the foundation provided sensory toolboxes for every classroom, a sensory path for brain breaks, alternative seating options (wobble chairs, ball chairs, etc.), and specialized sensory equipment for students with specific sensory needs. 

The DeKalb Central Foundation is proud to financially support DHS's Baron Friends Club for a holiday activity. Baron Friends Club matches students with and without disabilities to do activities together. Students rotated through four stations--Christmas cookie decorating, making an ornament craft, Christmas BINGO, and a game involving unwrapping many layers of wrapping paper!
