Five Things You Need to Know
1 - NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26
Schools are closed on 9/26 in observance of Rosh Hashanah. Happy New Year to those who celebrate!
2 - BEN HEM'S BUDDY BENCH
This week our first graders taught our Kindergartners about our Buddy Bench. The Buddy Bench is a bench located on our playground where students can sit if they don't have anyone to play with. When students notice someone sitting on the bench, they go over and invite them to join in and come play. Our Buddy Bench has been an active part of how we take care of each other and making sure that everyone gets the help they need. Sometimes it is as simple as needing an invitation to join in.
