The Buddy Program
What is the Buddy Program?
The Buddy Program is a unique mentoring program, where older students are paired up with students in the younger grades, (i.e. 8th graders are paired with Kindergartners, 7th grade with 1st, etc). Older students and their buddies get together for special projects. It is wonderful to see an older student helping a young student read a book, cut and paste papers together, and basically setting an example for their buddy.
What do the 8th grade students get from this?
They have an opportunity to become role models and to be a teacher to a younger student while still allowing them to be kids themselves.
