All Saints Catholic Academy’s
In Memory of Mr. John J. Hughes
On Wednesday morning, the All Saints Catholic Academy community gathered with the family of Mr. John Hughes for the dedication and blessing of our “Buddy Bench”. A “Buddy Bench” is a designated bench on the playground on which children can sit to signal to others that they need someone to play or talk with. Its goal is to eliminate loneliness and encourage inclusion. Each class will assign a student as part of our self-esteem program, Word of the Month, to keep an eye on the bench during recess.
This bench is dedicated in memory of a friend of All Saints Catholic Academy, Mr. John J. Hughes. Mr. Hughes lived a life full of service to the community, including serving as a Board Member of All Saints Catholic Academy. He helped thousands of people through the course of his life. As Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 25, Mr. Hughes continuously inspired service, community engagement and leadership development in the youth of our city. His legacy will live on as students of ASCA practice inclusion, acceptance and friendship in using our new “Buddy Bench”.
