    Attendance and Behavior Drawings

    At our quarterly BARK celebration student names were placed in two drawings for prizes.

    First, any students who had 95% attendance for 3rd quarter AND no more than 2 tardies had their name in a drawing for a scooter.  Pictured below are the grade level winners.









    Next, students who did NOT earn ANY referrals 3rd quarter had their name in a drawing for some spring toys/prizes.   Pictured below are the grade level winners.


    2nd Graders Create Store

    Eight students in the 2nd Grade Tier II Challenge Group have been working for several weeks on an Economics unit of study.  Their culminating project was to produce items and sell them to classmates in a store.   Classmates earned “money” based on their behavior in class.   All students purchased at least one item and all stores were sold out at the end of class.

    Battle of the Books

    Four teams battled it out on Monday, March 12 in the library.  They answered over 60 questions about 22 books.  The winning team will represent Buchanan at the District Battle of the Books on March 28 at Eastern Avenue Library.

    Family Game Night Success!

    Buchanan had  Family Game Night on Thursday March 8th from 3:00 to 4:30 P.M. We had board games and card games for all ages for each family member to enjoy. We served walking tacos and lemonade to about 125 people. Each Buchanan student walked away with a couple of games to take home and enjoy with their family. Family Game Night was a perfect time for bonding and board games right before Spring Break. Some of the students showed their appreciation by writing thank you cards to Mrs. Ross, our Family Involvement Liaison.
