What makes Central Elementary so cool? Their new Buddy Bench!

The Buddy Bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. The concept was devised by a York, PA first grader named Christian who first saw the idea in Germany. Christian’s movement has spread across the United States, including right here in Central Pennsylvania!

This year, the students of Central Elementary in the Chestnut Ridge School District constructed a Buddy Bench of their own!
