Tower’s Orange Chair

The orange chair serves as a reminder to teachers, administrators and parents that students are the focus and heart of our community.

The chair represents possibilities.

The playful, brightness of the chair – reminds us of how precious childhood is, and how each child should be encouraged for as long as possible in the innocent belief that they can do anything.

The chair represents respect.

The unexpected, vivid color of the chair doesn’t alter the fact that it is a chair. It challenges us to look beyond the surface and discover inherent purpose and value – it reminds us of our duty to raise children who see people as people, not as the labels ascribed to them . 

The chair represents optimism.

Optimism is a choice you can make, not a state of being. Being an optimist is about choosing to look at things through a positive lens. Many adults have lost the ability to view the world as rosy, but children are naturally optimistic. The bright sunny color of the chair spurs us to encourage children to embrace the positive, to expect the best in people.

The chair represents courage.

As we all get older, we experience things that may teach us to be afraid – loss, rejection, and failure. Children, though, have yet to experience so much of this, and that gives us an opportunity to re-frame struggle. The confident, daring color of the chair demands us to foster in our children the courage to take smart risks, to embrace effort in the face of adversity, to be entrepreneurial and view problems as challenges to solve not obstacles to avoid.
