Student Success Space Helps Questa Students Focus on Mental Health

  • Local Champion: Questa Independent School District
  • Date Funded: September 12, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $6,910

School counselors in Questa have seen an uptick in students requesting mental health resources and, in many cases, looking for a safe place to express their emotions. Students have sought out one counselor in particular at the high school who wanted to create a space where students can feel welcome, work on their assignments independently, and gather themselves before returning to the classroom. The space, though, did not have many amenities to help students cope. She reached out to LOR for help, and with a small grant from LOR, the Questa Independent School District was able to purchase a variety of items to transform this into a student-success space. Those items included floor lamps, bean bag chairs, a star projector, art supplies, adult coloring books, weighted blankets, sensory toys, and more.
