Buddy Bench

Last year, 
Blue Heron Elementary parent Chris Perry, who works for Crest Valley Landscape Development, donated a bench to the school. This year, Blue Heron installed the bench and decided to make it a “buddy bench", which is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. If a student needs someone to play with, they simply sit on the buddy bench, and other students will know he/she is in need of a buddy for recess. It has been a huge success during recess across all grades, and peer mentors pay particular attention to it to support all students. To learn more about the buddy bench, visit http://buddybench.org/what-is-the-buddy-bench/.
