Mr. Stroh from Grand Rapids MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Comfy Place to Read

My students need couches and chairs to provide comfortable seating in their library.

  • $1,848 goal

This project expired on September 30, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school consists of 310 amazing students in grades PreK-fourth grade. They come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Our school houses the deaf and hard of hearing program for our county with those thirty-eight students being mainstreamed in the general education population a majority of their day.

Our school invests in students' reading lives through access to diverse books, building a community of readers and providing an inviting, welcoming library environment.

There is an excitement in our building surrounding books and reading.

My Project

All students deserve a comfortable, inviting environment where they can fall into a book they love. Comfortable seating is a great way to provide this.

We are renovating the school library to create a more welcoming, engaging atmosphere.

We want the library to become the literacy hub of the school. A place where all readers are welcome. Currently there is no comfortable seating in the library. We hope to create a space where students will want to come to read, discuss and share their love for all things reading.

There is nothing better than a library full of students who are comfortably and happily reading
