More exciting news from Buchanan Community Schools! Last year when the HERD was so active and our anti-bullying campaign was so successful, I submitted an article to the MASA Leadership Magazine.  This magazine goes state-wide throughout school communities. This week we were alerted by MASA that the new InspirED Michigan online magazine saw the article and asked if they could reprint it. Of course!  The article can be found at We are in the “Feature” section of the magazine. Once again our staff and students are showing Buck Pride! Congratulations!

Also, in the news this week is our Robotics Club.  Approximately 15 of our high school students will be competing in the St. Joseph District FIRST Robotics competition. This competition challenges students to design, build, and drive a robot in a competition against other robots.  Students will be working collaboratively using their technology, math and science skills.  Last year was their first competition and our Buchanan students won the Rookie of the Year Innovation Award, the highest award for newcomers!  Check out their video from last year!


 In order to compete, they have to raise approximately $18,800. They are well on their way with close to $11,000 but are still in need of support. If you are willing to help with this young group of entrepreneurs, checks can be made out to Buchanan Community Schools. In the notation segment of the check, please note that the money is to be used for the Robotics Club.  More information on the Robotics Club can be found at
