Bluewater Introduces...
"A Buddy Bench"

 

With October being National Bullying Prevention Month, we have some exciting news to share from Bluewater Elementary.  Thanks to the summertime efforts of Olivia Burch, the Bluewater Elementary playground now has a “Buddy Bench”! Olivia, a second grade student, heard about the Buddy Bench Project happening at other schools around the nation and thought it would be a wonderful idea to incorporate at our school.  With the help of her parents, she approached the manager at Home Depot for the donation of the bench and was also able to secure a donation from Accent Signs for the bench placard. A special thank you to these companies for supporting our school!

 

The Buddy Bench Project is an opportunity for a student that feels sad or lonely- or just needs a friend- to

sit down and have someone join them as a buddy.

The basic premise of the bench revolves around friendship and inclusion.

 

A special ribbon cutting ceremony was performed on Bluewater's playground on Friday, October 17.

Olivia's parents, classmates,  Principal Connie Hall, Assistant Principal Amy Klugh  and

Deputy Charles Self were in attendance.

Bluewater Earns Another "A"

Bluewater Elementary has earned an A rating from the Florida Department of Education. FLDOE has graded schools on an A-F scale since 1999, offering parents, teachers, students and taxpayers a simple and effective way to see how well their schools are doing. This year's school grades were calculated using more rigorous standards and higher achievement levels. As a result, only 43% of elementary and middle schools in the state of Florida earned an A rating, compared to 58% last year. Bluewater Elementary continues to rise to the challenge of meeting more rigorous standards for educating our students.
