October 12 - Buddy Day

October 12 is Buddy Day! Mason High School brings students to Heartwood School to learn and interact in a friendly environment. The students encourage social interaction with their peers as well as play games and do other activities. Buddy Day is a great opportunity for our students to interact with their peers from the general education setting, observing peer models while having fun at the same time. Many classrooms focus on themed activities, from painting to baking and much more. Throughout the day you will see laughter and smiles from both Heartwood and Mason students as they build relationships with each other. Mason High School often reports back that it is the Heartwood Students who teach the Mason students valuable life lessons.
