"BUDDY BENCH" at Buford Academy is sharing the message of inclusion and kindness.
It was a student's idea. Kids looking for playground friends need a place to find them. What Christian Bucks started at his Pennsylvania school has made its way to Buford. It's called a Buddy Bench. It provides students a place to meet when they need a friend to play alongside. This idea has sparked inspiration around the nation. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of Kares 4 Kids and Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Partners Buford Academy is proud to have it's very own buddy bench. The bench was dedicated to the students at Buford Academy on May 6, 2015.
