There are many others both after school and in our region. Please remember to attend our meetings.
Best Buddies Officers:
Best Buddies is a national organization dedicated to establishing one-on-one friendships with all students in the school setting. The Washingtonville Best Buddies program is in its
second year and lies within the WHS Community Service Club.
Community Service Club students are matched up with a "best buddy". Our mission is to make everyone feel included and active in the school. Together, the new buddies will
participate in planned activities.
Contact one of the officers or Ms. Angelillo for more information!

In April, the Community Service Club joins forces with the Music Department to coordinate an evening of musical performances by WHS students and faculty known as Coffee House. This annual event has become very popular and every year the audience is generous in its donations to a worthy charity selected by the Community Service Club.
If interested in helping, the Community Service Club will be holding organizational meetings in March. Please listen for announcements during homeroom or see either Mrs. Wurster or Ms. Frey for details.
