Best Buddies

The Best Buddies program at Luther Burbank was one of the first officially chartered middle school chapters, dedicated to establishing mutually enriching one-to-one friendships to enhance the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. Best Buddies was founded as an organization in 1989, and now includes more than 1400 chapters across the world. We are proud to be part of the Best Buddies International organization.

Our chapter will plan to meet on the last Wednesday of each month from 2:15 to 3:10, in Mrs. Lonardo’s classroom, beginning in October. If your student is planning to participate, there will be extracurricular activity forms and membership applications outside of room D-136 (end of 6th grade hallway). Past members are encouraged to complete applications on-line.  Hope to see you there!
