Buddies (sometimes known as Truddies) are partnerships between classrooms at different levels throughout the school. Buddies/Truddies meet together several times during the year to read together and share activities, all school celebrations, assemblies, and field trips. Students between levels connect in small groupings or partnerships. The relationship promotes a sense of trust and well-being in the community and a sense of belonging in all areas of the school.
