Fall is Buddy Season at Barnesville
Posted 10/17/2018 12:13PM

October is when Barnesville’s Buddy Program kicks into full gear with fun fall activities designed to help Buddy groups get to know each other.


  • Preschoolers and their new 8th grade friends built with blocks.

  • Kindergarten played with 5th grade buddies on the Lower School playground.  

  • First graders helped 4th graders solve logic problems, and then read Halloween books together.

  • Second graders made pumpkin drawings with the 7th grade.

  • Third and 6th graders collected natural materials outside and worked collaboratively to create portraits of wild creatures.


Younger grades are paired with older grades so students develop meaningful relationships with students in other age groups. Buddy activities are built into our schedule once a month and include craft projects, playground time, reading books, community service, and sometimes just goofing around.

Buddy Groups were introduced last week, and later this month they’ll walk together in our annual Walk for the Homeless before they get into costume for Halloween celebrations together.

Photos on Facebook provide a glimpse into the fun.
