Buddy Benches

Anytime a life is lost too early, we always wonder “what if”.  
Middle school students struggle with juggling friendships, expectations, changing bodies and minds, sports, increasing expectations, individual goals, insecurities, and pressures from social media, parents, and peers.  Sometimes we just need a place to chill out.  These benches provide just that- and not just for us but for anyone who comes to our school.  We hope everyone knows that the benches are a place for personal reflection, but a place to sit if someone needs a friend.    
If we help just one person, we hope that saves a family from asking “what if”.
