Best Buddies is about including and accepting others. The club consists of regular education students (Peer Buddies), and students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (Buddies). Buddies and Peer Buddies are paired up at the beginning of the year. Throughout the year, we host monthly fun activities here at school, field trips, and attend local Best Buddies Inc. events. Relationships and bonds grow strong over the course of the year which is both meaningful and inspiring to all students involved. Students who are not paired up have the option of being an "Associate Member" where they can support Best Buddies and attend chapter events with us.
Fun Fact: PVMS Best Buddies is 1 of only 6 middle school chapters in the state!
