Most know the famous chorus to The Rembrandts’ iconic song, “I’ll Be There For You” played for the opening credits to NBC’s hit television series “Friends.”
Well thanks to a devoted guidance counselor, administrative staff, teachers and parents, Bridlewood Elementary in Flower Mound is always demonstrating the importance of friendship throughout the school year, but for an entire week, the whole campus celebrates “Friendship Week.”
Friendship Week is a campus-wide initiative to celebrate being kind and caring to everyone the entire week.
“This week is about maintaining friendships, having a friend and feeling safe here at school,” Bridlewood Guidance Counselor Krystal Kuban said. “If our students feel comfortable and that they belong, they are going to be able to learn more.”
In addition to a whole week full of fun spirit/dress up days, each grade had the opportunity to participate in Kuban’s friendship lesson: “In order to have a friend, you need to be a friend.”
During Kuban’s lesson, students watched videos and read a book about friendship; created a Circle Map to brainstorm attributes of a friend; and closed the lesson with an art activity to draw and write what a friend means to them.
“I’m a good friend when I play soccer and share with my friends,” Kindergartener Brook Seele said.
