Buddy Bench

 

The buddy bench is a part of a nationwide project, http://buddybench.org, to help students who are looking for a friend at recess.  At Norwood Creek we are training Buddy Bench Ambassadors who will be at the bench each day and ready to play with students looking for a friend.  Recess can be a surprisingly difficult time of the school day.  Our hope is that the buddy bench can be one way to ensure that all our students feel welcome, safe, and happy at Norwood Creek.
