New Workshops and Classes Coming Soon to Buchanan!
Last year we hired Jennifer Halder as our parent liaison for the elementary schools. Last year, she worked with the community to provide reading mentors to our elementary, provide workshops to parents, and collect feedback on community needs. This year, she will be hosting the Parent Academy.
The goal of Buchanan Elementary Schools Parent Academy is to educate and empower parents as partners, advocates and lifelong teachers in their child's education through educational courses and leadership opportunities. Through community partnerships, we are able to come together and bring you opportunities to engage in your child’s education and effective parenting skills.
