You may have noticed our beautiful new bench located near the pavilion playground. Not only is it a gorgeous, hand-painted work of art, but it serves as a safe haven for lonely kids. If a child is sitting on the buddy bench it is a signal to other kids that they are in need of a friend to play with them. The playground can be a lonely place for a kid, but hopefully, this new bench will give our students a new way to communicate and show empathy towards one another.
A big thank you to WPES parent, Larry Holland, for his brilliant work and to the PTA would for funding this effort!
