Grades 2 and 7 "Buddies"
The second graders loved playing the computer games, and their older buddies enjoyed teaching them the rules. Both grades have been learning coding through Scratch, an MIT visual programming language that is developmentally appropriate for each grade.
On several occasions throughout the year, second and seventh grade buddies get together to share in a Saint David's experience, building community among the younger and older boys.
Next week, Seventh Grade boys will escort their Second Grade buddy to the school's Thanksgiving Mass.
