The message of brotherhood, sisterhood week is that everyone in Fairport should be treated equally and everyone should respect one another. It’s not a hard lesson for students in Fairport as many think of Brotherhood-Sisterhood week and Family Outreach Day like the holidays.
“I think brotherhood-sisterhood day brings the whole community together and I think it’s a great day for the little buddies at Northside School to connect with the big buddies at the high school,” said Lexi Comerford, 3rd grader.
High School student mentors and elementary student buddies come together, no matter their differences. It’s a lesson they will carry with them outside the walls of Fairport schools. Brenna McSorley who is a high school senior said, “I remember being an elementary school student and my older buddies coming to visit us and I alward looked forward to that and now that I’m the older buddy it’s really special.”
Brotherhood-Sisterhood is a favorite for everyone involved, including the administrators that organize it. But, it’s no easy fete as they have to bus more than 6,000 students throughout the district, just to make the day happen.
