Playground Pals is part of our Project Cornerstone focus and designed as a peer buddy program to provide a circle of friends to support students who have social difficulties. Trained upper grade students are paired strategically with first and second grade students to assist them in orienting to the playground, learn new games and feel successful and socially connected while they are at play. They serve as a big buddy and critical friend for these students who might otherwise spend their recesses alone or engaging in non-productive behavior.
