The Veteran's Memorial School students, faculty and staff celebrated the inauguration of our new Buddy Bench last Thursday, afternoon, June 9th.  In attendance were Dr. Safier, Superintendent of Schools; Dr. Unobsky, Assistant Superintendent; students; parents; staff.  Ms. Fulleron and Ms. Rowe addressed the crowd with lovely words, Mrs. McQuaid, our wonderful and very talented music teacher, let some students in song, while our staff band, made up of Mrs. McQuaid, Mr. Fusco, Ms. Theodoro, Coach and Ms. Carney performed "You've Got A Friend" by Carol King.  The students then blew bubbles and watched in silence as they ascended to the sky.  Even though the day was a blustery one, the ceremony was meaningful and bright and fun was had by all!
