The Buddy Bench Comes to Gettysburg

Gettysburg Elementary is proud to introduce the addition of our new Buddy Bench to the playground area.  Several years ago, the Gettysburg Student Council made a collective decision to install a Buddy Bench on campus after they realized there was a need to help students make new friends and socialize with others. Each fundraiser held by the Student Council since the 2015-16 school year has been dedicated to the purchase of the bench. 

The idea behind the Buddy Bench is simple.  If a student is looking for someone to play with at recess, they sit down on the Buddy Bench.  When other students see someone sitting on the Buddy Bench, they go ask the Buddy to come play with them.  Students will be taught kindness, consideration, and empathy for others and it will help all our Generals feel loved and included on the Gettysburg campus.
