The Buddy Program

Woodside Elementary participates in a cross-grade level buddy program throughout the school year. Students in grades K - 2nd buddy up with 3rd - 5th grade students for projects, activities, and building relationships. These positive connections go beyond their “buddy time” to the playground and beyond!
