Buddy Program

Here at St. Pius Elementary, we have a special initiative that brings together PreK4 children and older students in a meaningful “buddies” partnership. Our buddy system isn't just about companionship; it's about mentorship, role modeling, and fostering a sense of community across grade levels.

Each PreK4 student is paired with a 7th-grade buddy who becomes their mentor throughout their early years in school. This bond extends beyond the classroom, as buddies sit together during Mass and collaborate on various projects. These shared experiences not only build friendships but also promote teamwork, communication, and social skills in both younger and older students.

The buddy partnership continues until the PreK4 student transitions to 1st grade, providing consistent support and guidance during crucial developmental stages. This continuity allows for deep bonds to form and ensures a smooth transition for our young learners as they progress through school.
