CK Buddy Benches
Students at Carrie Knause don't want to leave their classmates out. Second graders in Mrs. Jenkins' class developed a plan to bring the "Buddy Bench" idea to our school. The buddy bench is a way to eliminate loneliness on the playground. If a student is sitting on the bench, others students can approach them and offer a listening ear or a friend to play with. Students attended an assembly on Tuesday to learn more about the benches and what students can do to help other students and reinforce being kind to one another. Walmart in Alma funded the buddy bench idea through a grant. Morning Sun News Article | TV5 News Broadcast
