Providence Elementary Promotes Kindness with a Buddy Bench

Thanks to Baer Welding and the school’s PTA, students at Providence Elementary are enjoying a new Buddy Bench.  Principal Trudy Wilson and school counselor Dan Miggin presented it last week in an interactive assembly, explaining that the bench signifies more than a place to sit, but a place where students can find friendship on the playground. During the assembly, Mr. Miggin and the 6th grade leadership team role-played different scenarios with the Buddy Bench. The scenarios illustrated to students what they can do to be more inclusive and kind to their fellow classmates both in and outside of the classroom.
