Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 school year!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to a very special place, Buchanan Elementary School! I am incredibly honored to be the principal of this amazing building. Buchanan is a dynamic school, comprised of a vibrant staff, dedicated to creating a safe, nurturing, and engaging learning environment in which all students can be successful. We are committed to providing the highest quality of instruction for our nearly 370 unique and talented children. We strive for academic excellence, understanding that children are individual learners that require individual attention. Our dedicated staff members maintain a deep commitment to making a difference in the lives of each and every one of our students.
Social and emotional growth are equally important as academic growth. Children succeed when they are happy, highly engaged, and eager to come to school each day. Our school culture focuses on positive citizenship. We encourage students to demonstrate their best every moment of every day.
A strong partnership between home and school is essential to a student's success. Parental involvement is a critical component of a child's education. We strongly encourage you to get involved at Buchanan. With school and parents working collaboratively, we can set high expectations and give our children the confidence they need to become leaders in the 21st century.
It is my goal that the 2016 - 2017 school year will be a year in which your child excels both academically and socially in an exceptional learning environment. I look forward to being a partner in your child's education. Thank you for your ongoing support. On behalf of our entire school, I look forward to a rewarding year with you, our Buchanan Bears, and the caring community of Buchanan Elementary School.
