Greendale Elementary School | Lowe's Presents Buddy Bench to Greendale Elementary

students and adults sitting and standing around a bench.On Tuesday, September 11, Lowe's of Abingdon presented Greendale Elementary with a Buddy Bench which had been built by Lowe's employees.  The bench has been placed on the playground to encourage friendships and empathy among classmates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rules for the Buddy Bench are simple:

  • If you’re sitting on the bench, play with the first classmate who invites you.
  • While you’re sitting on the bench, look around for a game you can join.
  • Two friends sitting on the bench can turn to each other and invite each other to play.
  • The bench isn’t for socializing. Only sit there if you can’t find anyone to play with.
  • When you see someone on the bench, ask that person to play with you.
  • Keep playing with your new friends!

Thank you to Lowe's for encouraging Greendale Lions to be buddies and grow
their friendship circles.
