Kallie McPheters, a fourth grade student at Mary Snow, recently saw a need at her school which caused her to write an essay to Miss Maine Dirigo, Skyla Libby, for a donation from the Buddy Bench Project.
When asked why Kallie submitted the essay she said, “I do volunteer projects with Crown Cares (Creating A Respectful Environment in Schools-Society) which is how I learned about Skyla’s Buddy Bench Project. I think that Mary Snow School should get the Buddy Bench because at school, you learn and also make friends. Everybody should have friends but it can be hard to make friends which is why I think the Buddy Bench will help students who get excluded still make and have friends. The bench will not only help me but also all the kids that come to Mary Snow School after me and maybe even my little sister.”
Her essay was accepted and on Tuesday, June 9th the Buddy Bench was presented to Kallie at the Mary Snow School by Skyla Libby, Miss Maine Dirigo.
