By Corryn Holland at the Ouachita River School District Acorn Campus.
Acorn High School received a grant to place a water bottle filling station in the high school in November.
The filling station was placed in the New Gym. The grant was worth $1,000 from the Innovate Solutions for Educational Partnerships (ISEP).
The District hopes this encourages students and faculty to drink more water and stay hydrated.
More students seem to be bringing their water bottles since the fillers were installed. It restrains the germs of the typical water fountain, which is usually one reason many students refuse to drink from the water fountains.
Another cool feature included is it totals the number of water bottles it fills.
Since the school possesses many competitive students, this is another way to stimulate the kids to drink more water and stay healthy.
