This summer, the school purchased a "Buddy Bench" for students. A "Buddy Bench" is a bench that is placed in a school playground to help students make friends and be less lonely. Anyone who is looking for a friend to play with can go and sit on the bench, which lets other students know that he or she is interested in meeting a new friend. We would like to thank Mr. Schwalbe for installing the bench. We hope this simple bench will lead to many happy recesses!
