May 11, we had our dedication for our Friendship Bench at Duplessis Primary. Our Beta students listened to the story of a girl named Acacia who is they founder and leader of a non-profit named Tiny Girl, Big Dreams. She founded the company in 2012 with a goal of placing a friendship bench into every school and through kindness and friendship push bullying of our schools. Our 5th grade Beta students will present the mission and purpose of the friendship bench at their 5th grade farewell ceremony. Our Beta officers will return to Duplessis Primary next year to teach lessons on how to use the bench to all our students. Sponsors of the event included Principal, Jennifer Board, Jennifer Vicknair and Vanessa Bowles.
