    Major Saver Fundraiser Going on Now

    Continue to turn in those Major Saver sales!! Money earned will help support Study Trips throughout the year!!

    Attendance Works!

    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!!

    If you have any further questions please contact Ms. Bergert at 563-391-1463 or at bergertj@davenportschools.org
