Buddies!

We look to enhance community and fortify the bonds among our boys in many ways at Saint David's.

One that stands out is the pairing of seventh graders with a second grader buddy. As both classes prepare to be leaders in their respective schools, they meet several times to participate in a school activity, and exchange thoughts and ideas.

At their initial meeting last week, the boys shared snacks and played Thanksgiving-related word games, getting to know one another and establishing rapport.

This Wednesday, the second graders will be accompanied by their "big brothers" to Saint Thomas More for our annual Thanksgiving Mass. It will be the younger boys' first mass at Saint David's. The second graders look up to the older boys, and the older boys relish the opportunity to guide and encourage the younger.
