We believe every child has a need for friendship. For those children who may need social support, we provide a Circle of Friends to surround and support him or her through the school day and beyond. These friends often volunteer for this position at the beginning of the school year. The number of people involved in each circle and the structure for them varies greatly from child to child.
The children play together during recess time on the playground and hang out together during break time. The kids may start out as "artificial" friends through this process but often the friendships become natural and long-lasting.
At Zeeland Christian, being part of a Circle of Friends is an honor and privilege. Our students readily volunteer for the chance to be part of a Circle.
