James Buchanan Elementary School has the reputation as a friendly neighborhood school with excellent teachers, supportive parents, and wonderful students. We work diligently together to ensure that our children enjoy a safe and nurturing school while meeting high academic expectations.

If you are a new family joining our school community, please be sure to get involved in the many activities sponsored here at our school. If you are a returning family, make this the year that you try getting involved in a new way. We firmly believe that we work in partnership with each other to help our children build a better world. Good partnerships thrive on honest communication, respect for everyone, and the willingness to work together.

Many papers arrive home the first days of school. The process of checking and updating information is critical to the safety of our children. It can seem overwhelming and time consuming to review all the information. Please understand it is very valuable to follow these procedures. We ask that you return forms as promptly as possible. Also, please save the information sent home in a convenient location for reference throughout the school year. And please establish a routine of checking your child’s book bag for important notices on a daily basis. Good communication between home and school is essential for maintaining a positive school-home relationship.

Let us work together to make this school year great!
