Best Buddies

Best Buddies is a new club at Spry that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, leadership development, and inclusive living for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).


Through the simple acts of making friends, Best Buddies’ goal is to eradicate the social isolation of people with disabilities through programs that engage and include youth and adults with disabilities and their peers.


If you’re interested in joining Best Buddies, please grab a flyer outside of room 208 or the main office. Our first meeting is Tuesday, October 8th afterschool in room 208. If you have any questions, see Ms. Beckens or Mrs. Seroski.
