Every Pre-K 4 student is assigned a 7th grade buddy. Each morning the buddies sit with the Pre-K students to help them feel comfortable and secure in a large setting. Buddies also sit with the Pre-K classes during our school Masses and are invited to play with the Pre-K during recess. The Pre-K and the 7th grade buddies gather during the year to work on various projects and celebrate the holidays together. The Buddy Program fosters communication between grade levels and allows the older students to act as role models and mentors for the younger ones.
