Girl Scout Depre Donates Buddy Benches to JQA

As part of her Girl Scout Gold Award project, high school student Lauren Depre made a pair of buddy benches for the district’s John Quincy Adams Primary School, for the use of any student in need of a buddy during recess time. JQA’s sudents have been instructed to keep an eye out for any student sitting on one of the benches who they can be a good friend to and include in their play.

“These benches will serve as a tool to help bring our students closer together and to ensure that each student feels included and loved,” said Principal Christopher Molinelli. “On behalf of the entire JQA staff, I would like to thank Lauren for her hard work and donation.”

Depre was honored for her leadership and generosity by Superintendent Eva Demyen at a December Board of Education business meeting.
