This year, in honor of Veterans' Day, the sixth grade and their senior kindergarten buddies wrote letters of appreciation and well wishes to U.S. veterans. The letters will be mailed to the St. Louis V.A. Medical Center.
The buddy program is a beloved tradition and integral to fostering the unique close-knit community of Wilson. From special projects such as this one, to eating lunch together, to playing together on the playground, early childhood students and their upper school buddies learn from each other and form valuable friendships that last a lifetime.
