The Buddy Bench fosters friendships on the playground by providing children with a tool to identify those that need a peer to play with and encouraging those already engaged in play to invite others to join in the fun.

Carpool Safety Reminder
The safest way for students to arrive to school is via the school bus.
If you need to bring your student via carpool, please remember to help keep our students and staff safe in the carpool line as you drop your students off in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon. When dropping off in the morning please make sure your children exit the car from the right side only. The staff's priority is to get the students out of the car and have the cars proceed forward. Do not let your student out before the sign indicating the correct place. Thank you.
