“Making the future brighter, one child at a time,” is the phrase that has always been important to me.  I believe that each of our students is special and it is our responsibility as a school community to educate each one, make sure they all feel important, make sure they feel wanted, help them achieve and help them to be productive members of our community.  This year the Buckeye Elementary Team will do everything in its power to work to create a positive learning environment to help every student be successful.

I am confident that we will continue to have the same strong home-school-community connections at Buckeye Elementary that we have had in the past.  Last year we had excellent family involvement and support and would encourage parents to contact the school, attend a PTO meeting, come to our 100% parent conferences or write a note to a teacher to get involved.  Together we can accomplish anything!

Students help peel the apples, then the teachers cut the apples up and put them into slow cookers. At the end of the day, each student gets to taste the "fruits" of…
