Dade Elementary Buddy Bench
We are happy to announce that an amazing anonymous Dade County citizen donated a “ Buddy Bench” to Dade Elementary School. It is placed on the lower playground. Kindergarten through second grade students received lessons on Friday on how to use the buddy bench.
The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. Let’s spread the message of inclusion and kindness!
SHOUT OUT TO MRS. HAYNES FOR CONTACTING THIS AMAZING DONOR. THANKS TO MR. LEVERETT FOR ASSEMBLING THE BUDDY BENCH.
