Big Buddy Mentor Program
Early in the school year, students in grade five start to form a friendship with the kindergarten students that lasts throughout the year and is remembered for many years after that. The friendship is blessed at the Big Buddy Prayer Service in early September. The students meet often throughout the year working together on art projects and reading. The fifth grade students take their little buddies to church for Mass and stations. This is an opportunity for the fifth graders to be good role models as they sit with them to practice good church etiquette. The kindergarten students invite their big buddies to attend their graduation in May.
