Welcome From Our Principal, Susan Leggett
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Welcome all parents and students to the 2017-18 school year. I am excited to be your new principal and look forward to getting to know you. The staff and I are energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of all children.
At the William L. Buck School we set high academic expectations for all students. We are introducing a new mathematics series district wide. GO Math offers an engaging and interactive approach to covering new state standards. It combines 21st-century educational technology with dynamic activities, and a variety of instructional and engaging digital resources. In the area of English Language Arts our kindergarten, first, and second graders will continue with the Superkids Program. Our third through six graders will continue with the Journeys curriculum. Above all else, kindness is paramount and valued at our school. Our Emotional Literacy program is designed to equip our children with the skills necessary to become collaborative learners and future leaders. At William L Buck, success one child at a time, is ongoing and intentional.
Education is a joint venture between school and home. We extend to you a special yearlong invitation to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.
With this in mind, we invite you to participate in the William L. Buck Parent Teacher Association. This is an amazing group of parents and staff that work tirelessly for our students and families.
I look forward to a very positive and productive year together!
