Savannah Maxton, a second grade student at Mount Vernon Elementary, recently read an article on Scholastic.com about a Buddy Bench. The story related how a second grader in Pennsylvania, Christian Buck, got a Buddy Bench installed on his school’s playground.
Savannah Maxton, at right, with the help of her dad, Byron, created a Buddy Bench for the Mount Vernon Elementary playground so that classmates who needed someone to play with could sit there and others would know they are lonely. See the story in the Jan. 30 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
