During the 2017-2018 school year, a team of secondary teachers and administrators worked with GMB designer, Meeghan Mooney, to develop a plan for our Secondary Furniture Pilot for Mason Middle School and Mason High School. This team of teachers and administrators spent the winter and spring visiting schools throughout Michigan to see how updated school furniture and classroom designs could positively impact student engagement and learning.
At the beginning of the 2018-19 school year, four classrooms (two at MMS and two at MHS) were selected as pilot classrooms for new furniture. The Secondary Furniture Committee would like to thank Mrs. Laura Lewis, Mrs. Ellyn Delpier, Mr. Jeremy Cunningham, and Mrs. Amy Kelly for their willingness to participate in the furniture pilot and for their flexibility throughout this process.
Furniture pieces were selected and installed over Presidents’ Day Weekend this past February. The students and teachers have participated in surveys prior to furniture installation and will continue to provide feedback to GMB and Mason Public Schools so informed decisions can be made regarding future furniture purchases.
