Our amazing student council, under the leadership of Mrs. Jackie Bonath, worked this school year to raise money for a Buddy Bench for our playground. The bench is in place and ready to go. Teachers will be talking to their students about the bench. We hope our parents will also talk to their children about the intention behind this bench and how it should be used.
Kids sit on the bench if they can't find anyone to play with, or simply need a "buddy" (or several buddies) to invite them to join their play or games. Whenever kids see someone on the bench, we hope they will take it upon themselves to invite that child to join their game.
