Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program (PA-PYD) designed to develop and enhance girls’ social, psychological and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences. Over the course of the program girls will:
- Develop and improve competence, fell confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.
Such life skills will prevent unhealthy and risky behaviors, such as physical inactivity and negative body image, and promote positive health outcomes (e.g., physical, mental, social and spiritual health).
MISSION: We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
VISION: We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
OUR CORE VALUES: Girls on the Run honors its core values. We strive to:
- Recognize our power and responsibility to be intentional in our decision making
- Embrace our differences and find strength in our connectedness
- Express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts
Attendance is one of the major keys to student success. Here at Buchanan, we have a new initiative focusing on attendance. The next time you visit the school, check out our Perfect Attendance Bus in the hallway near the cafeteria. Every day that all students are present, their class is mentioned on the next morning’s announcements for having perfect attendance and they earn a star to be placed under their teacher’s picture on the bus.
Incentives for Perfect Attendance may include an extra recess, a prize from the prize cart, a popcorn party, or a pizza party. The students are very excited about this. They LOVE hearing their class mentioned on the announcements and of course the prizes they earn. Please read over Attendance Works to learn the importance of attendance and how you can help us achieve our goal of having every student here and on time!!
