We have beloved traditions at our school that bring children of varying age groups together. One is the Buddy Program that matches up two students who are three grades apart. Buddies are paired up at the beginning of the school year and the relationships are nurtured all year long through periodic visits and activities on campus.
We also have School Families—student groups with at least one child from each of the K through 5th grades represented. The School Families meet together occasionally to work on group projects and participate in school-wide activities.
These programs help build character and leadership skills for our older students while giving the younger students a sense of belonging and support. They are integral to the strengthening of our community.
