One of the focuses in fourth grade - the senior year of Lower School - is on leadership and the the ways leaders make can make a difference in their community. The fourth grade Leadership Squad's first project was to design and paint two benches – Buddy Benches - that will be placed in our playground. Occasionally during recess, students are not sure with what or with whom they should play. The Buddy Benches will allow these students who need a friend to find that friend or group of friends who will include them. The teamwork that went into creating these benches – under the guidance and support of their fabulous teachers - was amazing.
