    Parent Booster Club

    The Buchanan Booster Club is a FREE club consisting of parents/families and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem, and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and fund raising. To find out more about the programs we have/support at Buchanan, please join us at our monthly meetings!

    Car Lane Pick Up at Dismissal

    To ensure the safety of all students, thank you for following our procedures for car lane pick up at dismissal. Students will not be able to enter vehicles in the driveway at the front of the building. They should be exiting out the north doors and waiting for an adult to load them into their vehicle. If you wish to exit your vehicle, please pull around into a parking place.

    From Student Handbook:

    • Pull around to the north side of the building to begin forming 1 line of cars.
    • Please remain in your car and place student card (received at Unpack Your Backpack) on right side of dash.
    • Adults will load the first 4 cars. As those cars exit, the line will continue to move forward for loading.
    • To be as efficient and safe as possible, students will be loaded on the passenger side.

    If you need a student name card for your vehicle, please contact Mrs. Johnson in the office. Name cards allow for a more efficient dismissal. Thank you for your support.

    Another Thank You to Culver’s

    Culver’s has donated one FREE scoop of custard to our students who had perfect attendance during 4th Quarter. This means these students were at school every day and on time every day!!! Way to go!!!

    Thank you Culver’s for supporting our students!!!!!
