Spring break may sound like an odd time to redecorate your classroom, but it is actually a great time. The prices are lower because of the discounts on last fall’s furniture and students can give their feedback after they come back to class. In a sense, you get a test run on your decorating decisions before next year. The question is how to decorate and what to consider when doing so. Here are some tips.

I would be willing to bet pretty good money that almost everyone in the United States, and even beyond, have had a seat in a Virco school chair or combo desk at least once in their lifetime. Virco’s classic 9000 Series school chair with the trademark three open slits in the back, are literally EVERYWHERE.
Well, Virco has launched a new line in hopes to take over the world, again.
Their new N2 Series of classroom furniture has big shoes to fill, but here are some reasons why this won’t be a problem.
GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, along with it’s product emissions testing group Air Quality Sciences, Inc. (AQS), has been acquired by UL (Underwiters Laboratories) Environment.
AQS and GREENGUARD are industry leaders for product emissions testing and third-party indoor air quality certification. School designers, architects and educational procurement persons have long trusted the GREENGUARD Certification programs to help ensure their schools have high indoor air quality and to help earn LEEDS points.
In addition to being a fantastic divider of space, room dividers have many uses which you may not have known about. Screenflex room dividers come in various heights and lengths. Offered are 38 exciting colors and 5 fabulous fabrics to choose from. These options allow you to customize your dividers to suit your specific needs or customize your dividers to be used again and again for a multitude of purposes. Here are some ways to use Screenflex:
Create Classroom Space
Depending on the type and size of classroom you need, Screenflex offers various heights and lengths to customize the perfect size walls for your school. Setting up a classroom with Screenflex is simple. For example, with one 13 panel room divider you can create several options for an open classroom for your students. If your room is 24′ wide, you can divide the room in half creating two 12′ rooms. Your second option uses the same 13 panel room divider and one wall by bending the divider into an “L” shape. This option creates an approximate 13′ x 11′ room. Another choice includes creating a “U” shaped room by using one wall and bending the 13 panel divider into a “U” shape, creating an approximate 7’4″ x 7’4″ room. There are many different size rooms you can create with Screenflex.
Direct Traffic Flow
Screenflex room dividers can be set up in minutes to direct the flow of traffic. Use room dividers instead of manpower to direct students or parents where they need to go. You will also see Screenflex at airports to designate a closed terminal or to re-route traffic. Several room dividers can be latched together with multi-unit connectors to create endless divider length.
