Mrs. Leighton from Brunswick ME is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Super Cool Saddle Seats

My students need the 4 saddle stool seats in order to sit at our high top table in comfort.

  • $161 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My new students are currently enjoying the summer, unaware of how "different" their new classroom is.

All students crave a warm and welcoming classroom environment.

My classroom has flexible seating, which is going to be new for many of my students. Flexible seating allows students to stretch out, get cozy, and feel at home in the classroom environment. They will coming in each day to make smart choices about their seats and seat partners.

This new type of classroom is going to set our year up for success!

My Project

These durable and aesthetically pleasing stools will allow my students to sit at our counter height table. The stools will be able to be moved around the room if needed.

My students need to be able to sit comfortably in order to learn and grow!

These stools will be the perfect addition to our classroom. The black finish will match the rest of our flexible seating choices, so they will blend in and not make our classroom look too "busy".

Many of my students love to swing their legs and these stools will allow them to do this while sitting up high, working on projects, playing math games, or reading at their seat!
