Attention all students, sign up for a wonderful club that promotes friendships with people with disabilities and their regular ed friends. Join Best Buddies! We do some fantastic activities such as bowling, hayrides, Country Springs water parks, movies and shopping malls!
Best Buddies is an organization at Franklin High School that began to promote friendship between people with disabilities and their regular education peers. This international organization was founded by Anthony Kennedy Shriver and the focus is obtaining jobs and friends for people with disabilities through acceptance by all.
Best Buddies meets once a month and has pursued such fun activities as Country Springs Water Park, an autumn hay ride, the museum, a Wave game, a dance, Brewers games and bowling. The friendship between peers has been meaningful and rewarding.
Our meetings are usually the first Monday of every month in Room 229, and our group activities are usually the last Monday of every month. For more information please visit the Best Buddies website at www.bestbuddies.com.
Monetary donations are greatly appreciated. If you would like to make a donation and support the mission of Best Buddies, please contact the Franklin High School office.
