Patriot Pals

BAES Students Enjoy Time with Patriot Pals
Posted on 10/17/2022
After a hiatus of more than two years due to visitor restrictions in schools, Bill Arp Elementary School (BAES) is excited to welcome the return of the Patriot Pals program.

In this program, BAES students are matched with student volunteers from Alexander High School (AHS). These AHS Patriot Pals come to BAES every Wednesday and spend time with their pals. They play games, facilitate discussions about goals and progress, and serve as mentors and role models for their younger friends.

Chandler Reinke, a current AHS student, participated in Patriot Pals when he attended BAES. The program is already in high gear, and the students are
