PTO donation puts flexible seating in MWS classrooms

Seating options vary in shape, height, material, texture and motion in Kerianne Loran’s first grade classroom at Marion W. Savage Elementary in Savage. And there are low and high tables that can easily be moved and combined in groups.

What you won’t see is rigid rows of school desks. Loran and other teachers want more flexible classroom furniture.

It’s an educational trend for many reasons, according to Principal Renee Brandner. Mainly, it supports student-centered, personalized learning by giving students a say in how and where they sit and who they work with.
