Edith L. Slocum Elementary School students and staff gathered together this fall to witness the dedication of the school’s new outdoor Friendship Bench, a gift from the school’s PTA.

Friendship Benches are being used in schools throughout the country to provide primary and secondary students with a place to connect with others on their school campus.

This bench will be a new place for youngsters to sit, share, and promote a positive, understanding and mindful climate.
