This past Friday our school was lucky enough to have the district Superintendent, Dr. Flores, visit and speak during the monthly No Place for Hate Student Coalition meeting. Dr. Flores discussed the importance of strong student leaders in schools, and he even introduced the concept of the Buddy Bench to these specific students in third through fifth grade.
The Buddy Bench is a national movement to prevent any child from feeling alone or bored during recess and on the playground. The idea was started by a 2nd grader in Pennsylvania, and Buddy Benches can now be found in schools all over the country.
With the help of handymen in her family, Ms. Ray built and painted a Buddy bench for Caraway’s own playground. We will now be the 3rd school in Texas to have this special bench on our campus. To conclude the No Place for Hate Meeting, Dr. Flores helped dedicate the bench to Ms. Hohmann for her years dedicated to our students. A plaque in her honor can now be seen on the bench.
The No Place for Hate Members will be visiting with their classes and learning buddies to further explain the purpose of the bench to the rest of the students. Soon it will be on our playground, so be sure to be on the lookout.
