Hokki stools are a recent addition to many of the classrooms at Heart of the Lakes Elementary School.

These unique seats offer kids a chance to ‘move while they sit,’ according to school counselor Julie Vomacka, as the bottom is slightly rounded and offers gentle movement while remaining in place.

The stools help improve focus and concentration for some students, Vomacka stated in an email to the Focus, adding, “Staff and students want to say ‘thank you’ to the Family 549 Foundation for their grant to help make these available to our kids.”
