Third Grade

3rd graders value the time they get to peer edit their writing. This provides young authors a sense of how their readers really “experience” their writing.

Thankful Thoughts

Mrs. Wilde’s and Miss Outland’s classes enjoyed spending time together writing Thankful Thoughts for people we are very thankful to have helping us learn and grow here at Buckingham

First Grade Pajama Collection

The First Grade Pajama collection has ended. First graders donated 50 pajamas to Pajama Program. Scholastic will include a new book along with each pair of pajamas to help those in need! Way to go, first grade!

Fourth Grade Heritage Day

4th grade celebrated the culture and heritage of each individual in the grade level by sharing different and unique traditions of their family such as different dances, food, music, games, and family history. Each student had an opportunity to share with their classmates, and their work will soon be displayed in the 4th grade

Sixth Grade

Students in Rad-6 read "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes." The book tells the story of a girl affected by war. Sadako goes on a mission to fold 1,000 paper cranes so that she can get a special wish. After reading the book, students in Rad-6 tried their hand at origami as they folded their own paper cranes.

PEN Class

5th and 6th grade PEN students explore the field of robotics through the use of Lego Mindstorms NXT and EV3 robots. They have been learning how to expand on their knowledge of basic Lego bricks by using the Lego technic pieces and robot parts to create and program autonomous robots!
