A new “Buddy Bench" adorns the Blue Hill Playground in hopes of making all students feel included during recess time.
The bench was donated through Miss Mary Molle’s memorial, a long-time educator from Ord. Mary’s niece is a Blue Hill teacher and is excited to see the impact this will have on our students as her aunt’s legacy lives on.
Students will be introduced to the purpose of the Buddy Bench through Mr. Ramsey’s guidance classes and will be encouraged to always be on the lookout for the opportunity to be a friend.
Buddy Bench Rules:
If you are sitting on the bench …
You are looking for a friend. When someone asks you to play, join them, and always remember to glance over at the school's Buddy Bench to invite new friends to join in on the fun.
If you are not sitting on the bench …
Ask your classmate on the Buddy Bench to play, and make a new friend today! Keep growing your circle of friends until everyone has someone to play with. :)
