Buchanan Staff Shows Spirit on the First Day of School!

The Buchanan Elementary School staff showed their “can do”  spirit on the first day of the new school year wearing new t-shirts with the slogan “We Expect Growth at Buchanan.”  Buchanan students showed growth on their annual Iowa Assessment in February 2013 and Dr. Cindy Lewis, Buchanan Principal, wanted to celebrate that growth with her staff and keep the momentum going with a new slogan for the school year. “We are seeing a good growth trend at Buchanan,” said Dr. Lewis. “We all worked very hard last year and embraced new initiatives to help our students grow academically. Following the district’s harp focus on literacy, we’ve used literacy coaches to support our teachers and a program to help our students develop early phonics skills from kindergarten through second grade. We’re excited about the new school year and will continue to expect growth at Buchanan!”
