Prairie Point's Buddy Benches

Prairie Point thanks Student Leadership Club for creating and painting our new buddy benches. We're so excited to unveil these to students today. Please see the Buddy Bench Guidelines below for more information.

“We show we care about everyone when we ask others to play.”

The Buddy Bench IS:

  • A very special place that reminds you to be your kindest selves.

  • A place to sit and decide what looks interesting to you to play on the playground.

  • A place to include people in your play and make new friends.

  • A place to say "YES!" to any friends who ask you to play.

The Buddy Bench is NOT:

  • A place to hang out and play with friends you already have.

  • A place where you say "NO!" to a friend who invites you to play.

  • A place where being mean or hurtful is OK.

  • A place where excluding others is OK.

Your recess teachers can help guide you toward an activity and can help to remind you and your friends of the Buddy Bench rules. Try the Buddy Bench first, then ask for help if you need it!
