Best Buddies Chapter Started at Ludlow High School
Recently, members of the newly formed Ludlow High School Best Buddies® Chapter prepared and shared a homemade lasagna dinner complete with salad, garlic bread, juice and two different cakes for dessert with district administrators including, Superintendent Gazda, Mrs. Nemeth, Mr. Halpin, Mrs. Kurty and Mrs. Goulet. This is just one of the activities these “Best Buddies” planned when they meet two times a month during advisories. By all accounts it was a resplendent success, which is clearly evident in the pictures provided by the LHS Life Skills Teacher, Mrs. Bedore.

CHAPIN STREET SCHOOL COUNCIL
The Chapin Street Student Council has had a very fun and productive school year. This year there are 18 members on the student council. Ms. Jodi Yarkey, a 2nd grade teacher, is this year's advisor. Ms. Yarkey reports that the council collected over 2,000 pennies to donate to Pennies for Patients and planned many "Special Days" at Chapin Street including: Crazy Hair Day, PJ Day, School Spirit Day, and Twins Day. Currently the student members are making and selling Friendship Pins for .50 to benefit Ludlow's Relay For Life. Many kudos for these young students who definitely are learning the importance of volunteering and are making a positive difference for both the Chapin community and the community at large.
