         - Our Buddy Bench

Rock
  • The Rock

    The rock was donated as a gift to Sanders Corner in 2013 as part of the memorial to honor former Sanders Corner Principal Mrs. Kathleen Hwang. The rock was painted with the slogan "Making a Difference," with a plaque to also commemorate the placement. The rock sits at the entrance to the school where everyone can see it as they enter the property.

Starfish Memorial
  • The Starfish Memorial

    The Starfish Memorial was part of a dedication ceremony to honor former Principal Mrs. Kathleen Hwang. One of her favorite stories that she liked to tell was that of the starfish that would get thrown back into the ocean by a child. When a passerby questioned how tossing one starfish into the ocean out of the hundreds that were on the beach, the child replied "It makes a difference to that one starfish." Thus, the Making a Difference slogan was born. Mrs. Hwang promoted science-based reading practices at the school, and enjoyed hearing students read. With the help of many parent volunteers and businesses, the memorial was constructed in the shape of a starfish, with stone reading benches for children and the community to enjoy while reading. This memorial was dedicated as part of the Making a Difference 5 K event on November 17, 2013.

Little Free Library
  • The Little Free Library

    The Little Free Library was set up to allow children in the community to have access to books for free, as well as provide opportunities for book donations. You can frequently find children and adults bringing books to this library, exchanging their old books for newer titles, or to donate books that they don't read any more. The Little Free Library is conveniently located near the Starfish Memorial. The Little Free Library was given a new coat of paint and design in the spring of 2022.
