  • Lakeview’s Buddy Bench Ensures a Friend at Recess

    While some students look forward to recess as their favorite part of the school day, for others it can bring about the anxiety of finding someone to play with. Staff members at Lakeview Elementary School are addressing this issue with the new Buddy Bench unveiled this week during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the school.

    “If a student feels left out on the school yard, he or she can sit on the bench, and other students will know that that person needs someone to play with,” said Lakeview kindergarten teacher Jenn Borst.

    Last year, Borst said, kindergarten students started using an unofficial buddy bench. “It was so successful that kindergarten teachers asked for a grant from the Mahopac Education Foundation to purchase an official one this year,” Borst said. “The students loved it.”

    The concept of the Buddy Bench was introduced in 2013 by a first grader at a school in Pennsylvania, and it has taken off in schools throughout the country ever since.

    After the ribbon cutting, students watched a video in which five ROCKS (the school acronym for Respectful, Organized, Cooperative, Kind and Safe) “ambassadors” acted out situations in which the buddy bench would be useful. “We made the video to introduce students to this concept and assist them in utilizing it,” said Lakeview teacher Leigh Galione, who, with social worker Jill Iglesias, helped put together the video.

    The Buddy Bench was received enthusiastically by students, who couldn’t wait to sit on it after the ribbon was cut. “It can really help kids who are feeling alone by getting them a friend,” said fifth grader Charles Woolley.

    Lakeview Principal Jennifer Pontillo hopes the bench will ensure that every child is able to make the most out of recess. “The goal is that no child is outside at recess with nothing to do,” she said.
