    Author Julia Cook visits Buchanan

    Julia Cook has become one of America’s most recognized authors of guidance storybooks for children.  As a former teacher and guidance counselor, Julia writes practical, easy to use stories that not only make a positive difference, but are fun to read.   Her storybooks have become staples in elementary schools and homes throughout America, as they continue to thrill young students.

    Buchanan was lucky to have Julia Cook visit for the entire day, May 9.   She read stories, talked about book publishing and urged kids to “be better”.    http://www.juliacookonline.com

    5th Graders visit St. Ambrose

    Buchanan 5th graders participated in a pen pal letter exchange with teacher education majors from St. Ambrose University. The students exchanged hand written letters with their pen pals to meet writing and language state standards. Students were able to meet their pen pals face to face on the University campus at a lunch hosted by Dr. Tom Carpenter, Department Chair of the Teacher Education Program at St. Ambrose. Teacher education majors guided our  5th graders on a tour of the campus where the students learned some of the history  and information about St. Ambrose University,  and participated in a college class. Dr. Carpenter spoke to our Buchanan Bulldogs about becoming St. Ambrose Bees in the future!
