Amanda Rud­dell of North Ge­or­gia Na­tional Bank vis­ited Sono­rav­ille El­e­men­tary School to do­nate $500 for pur­chas­ing re­sources for the school’s planned sen­sory room. Pre­sented to prin­ci­pal Amy Bea­son and as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal Brian Hall, the check rep­re­sents a gen­er­ous do­na­tion from the com­mu­nity and a lo­cal busi­ness to specif­i­cally help stu­dents in Gor­don County.

A sen­sory room is a ther­a­peu­tic space for spe­cial needs stu­dents. Spe­cific equip­ment is se­lected to pro­vide th­ese stu­dents with en­gag­ing and per­son­al­ized ac­tiv­i­ties. This helps th­ese stu­dents ex­plore their senses, learn cop­ing mech­a­nisms, and it pro­vides an emo­tional safe space. While still in its be­gin­ning stages, re­sources will con­tinue to be put into cre­at­ing this sen­sory room to pro­vide ad­di­tional sup­port for stu­dents who strug­gle in th­ese ar­eas.

Mrs. Bea­son and Sono­rav­ille El­e­men­tary are thrilled with North Ge­or­gia Na­tional Bank’s part­ner­ship and their ini­tia­tive to reach out and sup­port el­e­men­tary stu­dents. With the sup- port of lo­cal busi­nesses and com­mu­nity lead­ers, Sono­rav­ille and Gor­don County Schools can con­tinue to find new ways to give stu­dents a rig­or­ous ed­u­ca­tion through mean­ing­ful re­la­tion­ships.
