LED Classroom Lighting Improves Childrens Education
Companies such as ILLUMINEX, a well known green energy company, have been emphasizing the advantages of LED classroom lighting for quite a long time. Not only are the lights more energy efficient and more durable, they also created a more natural lighting atmosphere in the classroom where they were installed.
Some schools and organizations have also began conducting a series of standardized tests to determine whether or not there was an improvement in the children's performance and behavior with the new lighting. The results were nothing short of remarkable- not only have the test scores been improved by more than 25%, but many of the teachers have also noticed that the children's attention was more focused and they finished their tests much faster with the help of the recently installed high efficiency classroom lighting. Student have also commented that school has become more pleasant and the atmosphere is much lighter than it was before the new lights were installed.Other benefits of natural classroom lights have also started to become known, as schools using LEDs in their classrooms were delighted to announce an energy consumption rate decreased by more than 70% and a considerably lower number of broken or burnt out lights during the school year.

After reading this article the Principal and teacher at PVJA decided we need these lights. We are doing a fundraiser called "Watts for Change" where people donate any spare change they can spare to help us reach our goal of $2,000.00. I am glad to report that we are a little over the half way mark in reaching our goal. We have a donation container set up in the Pewee Valley Seventh Day Adventist Church if you would like to help us reach our goal please stop by and make a donation.
