Thank you to those of you who joined us for the Ottawa Open House and the Middle School Open House! We had wonderful turn-outs and a lot of positive comments. We also want to give a HUGE “Shout Out!” to our Buchanan staff for their positive, upbeat attitude during construction. They did whatever it took to help us complete these projects. We will continue to finish up details at the Middle School and then for the next year we will monitor the construction for any warranty issues that may arise!
Due to the theft during construction at the Middle School, we have gotten somewhat behind in reporting our strategic plan to the Community. For those of you who are unfamiliar with strategic plans, these are goals we set for district during the year. During the past couple of years, we have worked on relationships/positive school environments, curriculum/instruction, facility upgrades and technology.
Now that our Open Houses are complete, we are working diligently to get back on track. Please join us at the Middle School on Monday night at 5:00 p.m. for our District School Improvement Meeting where we will present an overview of our District Strategic Plan and our district goals for this year.
Last but not least, I have now opened a Twitter account. My goal is to send out quick positive notes about what’s happening within the school district. If you would like to follow me you may do so @AndreavanderLa2.
Go Bucks! It’s going to be another great year!
Dr. van der Laan, Buchanan Community Schools Superintendent
