Current News and Announcements
  • Buddy Bench

    Today we received a ‎special gift from a special person. Mrs. Kehoe gave the school a "Buddy Bench". Students can use this bench to signal to others when they would like a friend to play with. When a student is sitting on the bench the other students know that particular student would like to have a Buddy to play with. 

    Thank you Mrs. Kehoe for such a special gift!!
