Friday, September 13, was a very special day for DCD eighth-graders and kindergarteners– Big Buddy-Little Buddy match up day! The cubby areas upstairs and downstairs were buzzing with excitement before first period when the buddies would meet for the first time.
DCD’s Big Buddy Little Buddy Program is cherished by students young and old! For the bigger kids, it’s an opportunity to serve as a role model for a younger student and to learn some important lessons about putting the needs of someone else before your own. And, for many eighth-graders, the memory of being a little buddy is still palpable!
