To build community and set up meaningful connections for students, each Early Learning homebase classroom is paired with an Upper Learning homebase classroom. Students are assigned a buddy. Buddy Time is scheduled once a month for students to interact. Buddy Time activities include recess, sharing books, art projects, science explorations, etc.
Students have the opportunity to first be a younger buddy, and then to take on the role of a big buddy. The Lower School Buddy Program allows students to make a positive impact on the lives of our youngest students.
