The main goal of this project is to provide students with choice, movement and opportunities for collaboration. Flexible seating aligns with our Bismarck Public School’s mission and vision because it is 21st Century learning. With different seating options available such as a wobbly chairs, exercise balls and scoop chairs students are able to choose where they do their best learning.

UKE CAN DO IT: $1000 need


The grant will help to both increase the school’s number of ukuleles, and replace those instruments that have broken. Ukuleles will be introduced as a special unit for fifth grade as first, and as the year progresses, will be added into more areas of their musical instruction. This is a project that will never be “completed,” as each year it will be repeated with the new fifth grade classes.

Inclusive Sports

Bismarck Public Schools Foundation and Bismarck Public Schools is kicking off Inclusive Sports, which unites athletes with and without disabilities in athletic competition.

Bismarck Public Schools would be the first to start Inclusive Sports in North Dakota with flag football at the high school level this fall followed by bowling, then track this spring.
