Buddy Benches

Altamont Creek students and staff would like to thank former student, Devan Yarnell, for building three brand new "Buddy Benches"  in various locations on our campus. The idea is that students needing a place to find someone to play with, have a special spot to make a connection, thus supporting Altamont Creek's goal to include all students and "Fill Buckets".  Devan is a current Livermore High School Sophomore who chose Altamont Creek, his former elementary school, when it came time to do his Eagle Scout project. Devan spent over a year getting district approval, fund raising, and coming up with the plans for these special benches. Altamont Creek would like to thank Devan for choosing us for his project. The "Buddy Benches" have been a great success!
