The holidays were extended for The Leelanau School thanks to our neighbors to the northeast at The Homestead. Yesterday, we received word that The Homestead was upgrading and renovating their conference areas, and as a result had a wonderful array of gently used items that they were kind enough to donate to The Leelanau School.
“They sent photos and detailed descriptions of all the items and it quickly became obvious that the chairs and whiteboards in particular would be put to very good use at our school,” said JD Friley, Head of The Leelanau School.
The items were ready to go by the next morning and Leelanau students and staff loaded them into trucks and unloaded them in our Learning Commons and in our Karman Activity Center.
It didn’t take long for the students to find them and give them the big thumbs up. The dark brown chairs are perfect in our Learning Commons, because they allow us to rearrange the space quickly and gather in circles, around desks and in quiet study areas. Plus, the color and texture will hide dirt! The chairs they are replacing are decades old, and have been repaired numerous times.
The lighter chairs will be used in the Karman Activity Center which is used as a class room, meeting room and casual gathering space. They will be functional, comfortable and much more attractive than what we were using.
“We are so very grateful that The Homestead donated these great items to us! What a wonderful way to start the New Year!” Friley said.
