Check Presentation at Glendale Acres Elementary SchoolThank you to Leonard’s HVAC for a $500 donation to Kirsten Dunlap’s Class at Glendale Acres Elementary School!  Mrs. Dunlap teaches kindergarten and first and second-grade students with autism.  Her students struggle with sensory needs, more specifically they seem to have proprioceptive and vestibular needs.  In order to address these needs, she intends on using the funds to purchase items to address these sensory areas.  Mrs. Dunlap is researching items and prices as well as seeking parent input, for as one knows, it’s best when parents and teachers work together for the success of the student.  We are so grateful to the community support of Leonard’s HVAC!!!
