Please join the Orland 135 Foundation for Education, and the students and staff of High Point School as we conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the school’s new Buddy Bench on September 6, 2019 at 2:00 pm at 14825 West Avenue in Orland Park. A Buddy Bench gives students a safe space to foster friendships, reduce bullying, and eliminate loneliness. It builds empathy and teaches inclusiveness. It also acts as a physical reminder to the students to be kind to one another.
The Orland 135 Foundation for Education raised funds from generous donors and a Be Kind 5k Run/Walk to purchase the Buddy Bench.
