Third-Grade Buddy Program Kicks Off

October 18, 2018 - As part of our commitment to community building, each kindergarten class will pair up with a third grade class. Then each kindergartner will have a third-grader as a big buddy for the year. On October 17, kindergartners were "welcomed" to the school by their third-grade buddies. 

Each older buddy gave a younger buddy a white flower, in a ceremony following the school's monthly Green Mountain Sing. 

Throughout the year the third-grader and the kindergartner will connect. They may read books together, have lunch together, and spend special time in each other’s classrooms.
