Posted On: Monday, November 06, 2017

Sampit Elementary has joined the growing trend across the country of installing Buddy Benches on playgrounds.  The benches are designed to eliminate loneliness on the playground and foster friendships.  Sampit Elementary consistently shares the message of being and acting respectful towards others.  The buddy bench is just one more way we hope to emphasize the importance of treating everyone the way you want to be treated.  The purchase of the buddy bench was made possible by the Collins family in honor of their father, Mr. Andrew J. Collins.  Sampit Elementary would like to thank the Collins family for this wonderful addition to our play area. ( pictured Hope Collins, Yakari Collins, Markell Smith and Taymar Smith)
