BUDDIES PROGRAM

Developing and fostering relationships between students is a critical element of the growth plan for our students at Saint Gregory the Great Catholic School. To ensure that bonds are nurtured and to help young students acclimate to their growing roles in the school, JK students are assigned a 6th grade buddy, Kindergarten students receive a 7th grade buddy, and 1st graders are paired with an 8th grade buddy. Older buddies accompany the JK-1st grade to many of their functions, such as weekly Mass and events such as the Halloween Carnival and Santa Shop. They celebrate the holidays together and spend quality time together on a regular basis throughout the school year.
