Dear Parents,

Many new children in grades 1-4 will be attending Bedwell in the Fall. The “Bedwell Buddies” program helps new students make new friends before the start of the new school year by matching them with a current Bedwell student in the same grade.

If you have any questions, please contact us at BedwellBuddies@BedwellHSA.org.


If your child is a NEW STUDENT, entering grades 1-4, and would like a "Bedwell Buddy," 


Click here to download the New Student Form and drop off the completed form 
in the "Bedwell Buddies" box in the main lobby.

You will be contacted by a buddy before the first day of school. They will be available to answer any questions you might have about Bedwell.

You can schedule a play date with your new buddy at your mutual convenience, maybe a local park or the Bedwell playground. This will ensure that all new children will know at least one familiar face on their first day in their new school.


If your child is a CURRENT STUDENT and would like to be a "Bedwell Buddy",


in the "Bedwell Buddies" box in the main lobby.

If you are selected to be a buddy, you will be contacted with a new student before the first day of school. We ask that you reach out to the new student to welcome them to the community and answer any questions they might have about Bedwell.
