Honoring Our Veterans Day Heroes!

On Monday, November 11th, Buckingham celebrated our annual Veterans Day Ceremony hosting our community's FINEST. Buckingham students invited family members and friends who served in the US Armed Forces to spend their morning at our school. First, our Veterans visited the 5th and 6th grades as they were interviewed about their experiences and service. Then, our Veterans shared time during the ceremony that featured speeches and songs thanking them (and their families) for their sacrifice for our country. Finally, a reception was held for our special guests. Thanks to all of our volunteers, teachers, and students who collectively shared the message, "We will Always be Proud of your Service!"

Mrs. Wilde's Class

Mrs. Wilde’s 1st grade class had a great day on Pumpkin Day! They made predictions on the weight, circumference, and the number of lines that were on their pumpkins. They also predicted the number of seeds inside their pumpkin and if their pumpkin would sink or float. Finally, they listened to Pumpkin stories on Epic and read non-fiction text in their Scholastic News magazine.

1st grade having fun on Halloween. They had a great time at the Halloween party decorating masks and making mummies.

Mrs. Fillette's Class

First grade enjoyed a day full of pumpkin investigation. These scientists in action predicted, measured, weighed, counted, checked predictions, and carefully observed and recorded their discoveries. Students utilized many various strategies. Their scientific thinking was amazing!


Students in kindergarten learn about their speech helpers from Ms. Rothstein. This helps all students learn to produce sounds correctly and improve articulation.

Fourth Grade

4th grade researching their own heritage as part of our first Lead 21 reading unit focusing on heritage and culture.

"One District One Book"

Buckingham students enjoyed reading the “One District One Book” selection RULES, by Cynthia Lord. As a celebration, kids made up “rules” of their own to help students (especially new students) understand what it takes to be a Mighty Knight. AWESOME rules, kids!
