HGF Gets a "Buddy Bench"

posted Sep 15, 2016, 8:59 AM by Susan Matthews

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!
