Making Buddies at Minnesauke

Thanks to a generous gift by the Minnesauke Elementary School’s sixth-grade Class of 2014, a new buddy bench has been installed on the school’s playground.

The purpose of the new bench is to provide a space for students to sit while looking for a friend with whom to share recess time. In conjunction with the school’s character education program, students are encouraged to regularly check the bench and extend a welcoming hand to anyone sitting upon it to join them in a recess activity.

Readers Capture Trophy

Minnesauke Elementary School earned the top prize during this year’s Emma S. Clark Library Summer Reading program. With 14 percent of the school’s student population participating in the initiative, Minnesauke earned the first “Emma Cup” in honor of its students’ reading achievements.

To be considered for the program, which was open to all elementary-aged children in the area, individuals were challenged to read at least seven books during the summer months. Minnesauke Information Specialist Taylor Kinsley and representatives from the library spoke with the school’s students about the program prior to the end of last year.

“I am very proud of all of the students who participated in this great program,” said Ms. Kinsley. “It was a nice way to encourage our community’s learners to develop a lifelong love for reading.” 

In celebration of Minnesauke’s top participation rate, Brian Debus, the head of children’s services at Emma S. Clark, recently visited and presented the school with the official trophy.
