Daniels Farm School's very own Buddy Bench
The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. If a child is sitting on it alone, it is a signal to the other kids to ask him or her to play. What a fabulous way to continue the Daniels Farm philosophy of inclusion and kindness! Special thanks to the 2016-17 5th grade families who afforded us this opportunity.
