The Chapel Buddy program at St. Mark's is one of the many ways students enjoy intentional cross-grade level collaborations. Last Friday, Kindergarten students attended their first "big kids" 1st-6th grade chapel service in the Church. They buddied-up with third graders who helped to guide them during the service.
Our newest Chapel Buddies will enjoy continuing to deepen their relationships over time as they interact in other ways. Third graders practiced their letter writing skills by writing introductory letters to their Kindergarten buddies and future plans include time together to strengthen reading skills.
The relationships will continue next school year as they become first and fourth graders sitting together during each chapel service.
