You’ve Got a Friend!

Our community friends from the Burlington Education Foundation (BEF) approved a grant request proposed by Fox Hill School for a Friendship Bench, a Friendship Table and Quiet Game Boxes.  Each of these items promote kindness, respect, responsibility, acceptance and empathy for each other at recess.  At times kids are unsure of who to play with, cannot find a group to play with or have trouble joining a group of friends.  When kids see someone sitting on the Friendship Bench, it communicates someone needs a friend.  The Friendship Table is a place for children who prefer to play quiet games with others.   This week I held two short assemblies to explain “The Friendship Bench” & “The Friendship Table.”  The kids are excited, love the new items and have been having a great time out at recess using them.  Our most sincere thanks to the Burlington Education Foundation for caring about Fox Hill School.  We have a friend in you and our kids are benefiting every day from your kindness and your support!  Thank you!
