Summer School
We are excited to announce that Buckland Mills Elementary is going to be the site for summer school this year for students in Kindergarten through 4th grade, from Tuesday, July 5, 2016 through Friday, July 22, 2016.  Please click here for details.  The registration form should submitted by Wednesday, June 1, 2016. 
Changing the World
As an IBPYP school, we encourage our students to be caring, reflective, and to take action to better the community.  One of our students sought international support to help raise funds to donate hand sanitizer to schools without clean running water in Flint, Michigan.  This student received recognition for his efforts from television host Rachel Ray, as well as from President and Mrs. Obama.  We are very proud of him and all of our students that seek to make the world a better place.

Cafe Fraction Fruit Tree
On Monday morning announcements, there will be a question for a different grade level each week, from the Wildcat Cafe.  Students can turn in answers all week, during lunch.  On Thursday 3 winners will be selected who have answered the question correctly.  Winners will be announced each Friday, and will receive a Puzzle Game called "15."
