FTCHS Best Buddies

Adviser(s): Mrs. Colon


Best Buddies meets after school Thursday afternoons from 3:30-4:30 in the school cafeteria.  Best Buddies at Franklin Towne is a social club that focuses on building meaningful and lasting friendships between students with intellectual disabilities and students in the general education population. During club times we hold information sessions that help students learn about different physical and learning disabilities. After school activities include: Trivia games, Mummy Wrap games, relay races, team building exercises, and confidence booster activities.
