    September Students of the Month

    Sponsored by Christ Church Men’s Group – Representatives John and Tom

    Common sense, perseverance, initiative, effort, responsibility, teamwork and caring is what these 39 Buchanan students have demonstrated during the month of September. They were chosen by their peers and teachers to represent their class. We celebrated these students’ effort with certificates and a grand parade down the hallway with their peers and staff cheering them on. Christ Church Men’s Group presented two grand prize winners with a $10 Wal-Mart gift card. The grand prize winners also get to choose a brand new book to donate to the Buchanan library tagged with their name forever.

    Congratulations again…
