WHAT IS A BUDDY BENCH?
The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and
foster friendship on the playground. If you are sitting on the
bench you maybe 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.
Keep growing your circle of friends until everyone has
someone to play with.
Read the story about Christian Bucks, a 2nd grader at
Roundtown Elementary School in York, PA, where he
witnessed lonely classmates at his school's playground,
and wanted to make sure everyone had a friend. What
was his solution? The Buddy Bench – modeled after a
bench he saw in a German school brochure.
WHY A BUDDY BENCH?
Cultivating an environment of positivity, kindness, and
encouragement for our young people is exactly what
Kait's Angels strives to achieve. The Mattituck/Cutchogue PTA
jumped at the opportunity to sponsor a buddy bench at Cutchogue East
Elementary School in 2014 in honor of our angel Kaitlyn, and now we're thirsty for more!
With your help, Kait's Angels can sponsor buddy benches throughout the community and beyond and help spread this vital message to our delicate young people.
