On Friday, December 11, Best Buddies gathered in the City High library to participate in festive winter activities such as painting snowflakes, making Christmas ornaments, and building a ten-foot-tall snowman made out of books.

“I really liked talking to all the people that I normally don’t talk to. If it wasn’t for Best Buddies, I wouldn’t have met all these people because I wouldn’t have known they existed,” Penelope Wilkins ’21 said.

Best Buddies is a long-standing club at City High that many students participate in. Students who choose to participate in Best Buddies are paired with a buddy and throughout the year spend quality time getting to know and bonding with their buddy.

“Best Buddies is amazing. I love how inclusive they are [because] I met all of my friends here and honestly I think this is one of City High’s best programs,” America Dunbar ’21 said.
