Kindergarten Buddies

Kindergarten Buddies

One of our special activities at MCMS is Kindergarten Buddies.  Five years ago, Mrs. Simmons (7th and 8th grade math teacher) and Mrs. Lopez (Principal at Locust School) initiated a great way for our 8th grade students to “give back” to our youngest learners.  Students will “buddy up” and complete projects and activities together.  Afterwards they will have time to play together! The outcome of this program is the connection that occurs when our oldest and youngest students get together in a structured and nurturing way!
