The Buddy Bench
You might notice a new bench near the Kolb Family Field. Alex in Ms. Crane and Ms. Youman's second grade class brought the idea of the Buddy Bench to Mr. Josh with the goal of creating friendships at recess. The idea is that if a student is looking to connect with other kids, he or she can sit on the bench. Kids are encouraged to either sit with him or her on the bench or invite the student to play. Alex's class made bracelets and book bag charms to raise awareness of the Buddy Bench and to remind everyone to be kind to one another. Thank you to Alex for this great idea and to the Parents Association for funding the Buddy Bench!

She's a wonderful listener and tireless volunteer. To highlight some of Callie's volunteer accomplishments, she helped recruit the largest TEAM SCHENCK SCHOOL for the IDA-GA 5K Dyslexia Dash, organized "Same Boat" social events for fourth grade, served as a room parent, and volunteered with the Annual Fund, Doughnuts with Dads, Field Day, and teacher appreciation efforts. Thank you, Callie and the Fuller family for all that you've done for the School! Best Wishes to Ryley at Mt. Vernon Presbyterian!

The 102 Challenge

On Friday, May 25, 102 students will become Schenck School alumni.

To celebrate this wonderful milestone, an alumni parent and grandparent have issued a challenge to Schenck School alumni and friends of the School: we have 102 hours to raise 102 new gifts in honor of the 102 newest alumni. Upon meeting the challenge, a very generous gift will be made to the Annual Fund. The 102 Challenge begins on Monday, May 22, at 10:00 a.m. and ends on Friday, May 26, at 4:00 p.m.

To successfully complete the challenge, it must be a new gift (not a payment on an existing pledge). Gifts of all sizes are greatly appreciated and celebrated. This is a great way to honor an outplacing friend or your child's teacher.

We will post updates on social media during the 102-hour time period and hope to see many friends and families join in the fun. Feel free to share the challenge on social media and be sure to use the hashtag #TSS102!
