They’re coming! They’re coming! The Buddy Benches are coming! Weber High School’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and DECA Clubs in partnership with local businesses have donated Buddy Benches for Lomond View, Majestic, Bates, North Ogden, Pioneer, and Valley Elementary Schools.

We have partnered with local businesses to bring Buddy Benches to all of the elementary schools that feed into Weber High as a service project. Team lead and club member, Grant Knight had already approached citizens in our community and was able to provide two benches for Green Acres Elementary School as his Eagle Scout project. Buddy Benches are special benches that will be installed on elementary school playgrounds. The Buddy Bench teaches inclusion, social skills, builds character, and promotes friendship. The Buddy Bench is a special bench designed to help students learn how to include one another at recess. If a student is lonely or needs a friend to play with, he or she can sit on the Buddy Bench. This is a signal for the other children on the playground to come and invite them to play. We would like to thank all of our partners for their generous donations! Without them, we would not be able to provide the Buddy Benches to these elementary schools!

Thanks so much for all of your help and time!!!

Grant Knight and team
