Flexible Seating at Donges Bay

The Donges Bay PTO was incredibly generous last year in providing flexible seating furniture for one of our 4th-grade classrooms.

Benefits of flexible seating include:

  • creating collaborative learning opportunities for students
  • higher student engagement through creative seating arrangements 
  • opportunities for increased student movement
  • building a stronger community atmosphere

During Curriculum Night, Ms. Lisa Eckes will be available in room 166 to give all families an opportunity to experience how the furniture will be utilized. Please consider dropping by between 5:30 and 7:30 PM on September 10th or September 12th to learn more.  

Moving forward, Donges Bay's staff would like to explore incorporating flexible seating into more classrooms. Thank you for your willingness to learn more and support this student-centered initiative!
