BUDDY BENCH CONNECTS FRIENDS
When Mrs. Bonnie Lauton retired at the culmination of the 2015-2016 school year, she wanted to leave something behind to honor the students she worked with for so many years. Bonnie, our longtime school psychologist, initiated an effort to include a new "buddy bench" on our playground. On Wednesday, we celebrated the inclusion of the new bench on our playground. No child should be alone at recess. Read more about the "buddy bench" concept by clicking here!
