Buddy Bench

On Friday, October 19, 2018, the Fabius-Pompey Elementary students and staff gathered together to recognize and embrace a new Buddy Bench on the playground. Jan and Marvin Murray donated the bench in memory of their son Marc who passed away from a long battle with leukemia. On the bench there is a plaque that states in memory of Marc Murray, and the message , “Treat others that way you want to be treated”.


The buddy bench originated in Germany, but started in the United States by a student in Pennsylvania who saw a picture of this special bench (  The simple idea was to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. This spirit of friendship ties into our school’s pledge, Rachel’s Challenge and our Falcon Spirit.
