Madrona Integrated Team
Call for Artists Submission: Buddy Bench
Madrona K-8 is an Edmonds School District choice school. It is different from the neighborhood schools because of the multiage classroom setup. Multiage learning encourages leadership and team learning. Madrona Integrated Team (MIT) is our version of PTA. Everyone is a member: Staff, parents, and students. We collaborate to support our students to give them the best learning environment possible.
“The world our children inherit, the opportunities they have, and the dreams they live, depend upon the education we provide them. Our vision becomes their reality. To ensure this vision, each child that walks through our doors must be given the same access to the best educational foundation our staff, parents, and community can offer. Madrona’s multi-age setting supports our mission to create a strong sense of belonging for all students and provides unique opportunities for continuous growth through the collaboration and development of relationships among the students, staff, and parents.”

New Buddy Bench for the Madrona K-8 Playground
What is a buddy bench?
The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. The bench will help spread the message of inclusion and kindness. A bench is a safe place for students to signal to others that they need a friend to reach out to them.
MIT is asking artists to submit up to three design ideas, incorporating specific themes targeted by MIT. Materials can be reclaimed materials
To be considered for the project, please submit the following by August 1, 2023:
Thank you for your interest in our project, and for your interest in the buddy bench! We look forward to receiving your submission. Please email questions regarding this project to MIT Parent Chair, Molly Tobias at [email protected] or 509-961-3852
