We're proud of this party!

Students and staff in the Best Buddies program pose during a party celebrating the end of the school year.

Our new Best Buddies club celebrated the end of their first year at Arbor Hill Elementary!

On Tuesday, the gym was transformed into a carnival complete with games, face painting and – of course – popcorn.

Best Buddies is an international organization that pairs students with peers who have an intellectual or developmental disability. It promotes one-on-one friendships and, here at Arbor Hill Elementary School, strengthens our community, breaks down barriers and is a lot of fun for all involved.
