Spider Man and a dinosaur were part of the scavenger hunt festivities.Best Buddies, Quakertown Community High School’s most popular club, recently held its Fall Festival Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt. More than 200 students traveled the school’s hallways, maps in hand, searching for goodies.

The club’s mission is dedicated to ending the social, physical, and economic isolation of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. With the help of advisors Jennifer Honrado and Megan McGinty, Best Buddies provides club members opportunities for one-to-one friendships; leadership development for students with IDD; makes all students feel valued, and helps improve life skills.

“Each meeting we ask students to switch groups and make new friends,” Mrs. Honorado said.

The Quakertown Community Education Foundation recently approved Best Buddies’ $1,000 mini-grant request for its Spring Fling. According to QCEF President Stephanie Zajkowski “The Board was very impressed by the incredible growth the club has experienced over the past two years and recognizes the financial strain such growth can create. Everyone felt this club clearly provides opportunities not traditionally available to students inside or outside of the classroom. We hope this grant in conjunction with your other fundraising activities enables the club to achieve everything you hoped to this year.”

The Spring Fling is scheduled for March 3.
