The LaSalle II Buddy Bench is finally here! Ms. Sapieka has been keeping the bench company and making some new friends in Room 113, but we are happy to announce that it has been permanently installed on our playground. Ask your child to fill you in on what our Buddy Bench is and how to use it! In short, students can sit on the bench if they are looking for someone to play with outside, and everyone else knows to ask students sitting on the bench to play. Mr. Edwards and Ms. Sapieka tried it out on Halloween and it worked great – check out our before and after pictures!
A special thank you to our 4th grade student Myah S., who suggested this wonderful idea!
Please note that we do have a costume policy for Halloween.

Also, per our regular school policy, no candy or food will be distributed during the school day.
