The benches were scheduled to be placed on campuses in 2020, but COVID delayed the process. The Buddy Benches also commemorates the 25 years that Charlie Chipper has served as the mascot for Keep Lake Jackson Beautiful!

Charlie was a big hit on each campus when he and the Keep Lake Jackson Beautiful City Commission brought the four Lake Jackson elementary schools their bench, each being placed in a special spot on the school’s playground. “A student can sit on the bench to let others know they are looking for a buddy,” said Bess Brannen counselor Amanda Davis. “It’s a wonderful way to foster and grow new friendships with other students.”

“We are grateful for our friendship with Charlie Chipper and the Keep Lake Jackson Beautiful City Commission,” said Superintendent Danny Massey. “And we want to thank them and the City of Lake Jackson for bringing these Buddy Benches to our Lake Jackson elementary schools.”

“Buddy Benches are places to spread kindness, grow friendships and provide a safe place for students during recess and playground activities,” said Wende Hester, a volunteer with the Keep Lake Jackson Beautiful City Commission.

The benches are constructed of a durable top-quality plastic that is weatherproof and easy-care for. They are braced and safely secured in their locations on the playgrounds. The school names are placed on the back of the benches in bold blue print.
