Our Bobcat students are busy even outside of school. Check out these students and their recent accomplishments that make us proud to brag:
Adam from our 5th grade participated in a spelling bee hosted by First Quarter Community Squadron. Guess what??? He placed FIRST!!! That's right, 1st place! This awesome feat was no surprise to us, as he was last year's school spelling bee 1st place winner and then 2nd place overall at the state regional bee!
Mrs. St. Julien, Assistant Principal, was able to attend this year's Deepawali ceremony at Southern University. Many of our own Buchanan students were part of the presentations and performances. The photo below on the right shows 5th grader Aadya S. singing beautifully with her mother. Many thanks to Dr. Trivedi for always inviting the Buchanan staff and educating the staff and students on the significance of this beautiful Indian tradition. Deepawali or Deewali has its origin is Sanskrit meaning row of lamps/lights. The celebration of the festival of light signifies the victory of light over darkness and the victory of good over evil. Sangamam is a Sanskrit word which refers to amalgamation, joining, or bringing together of people, cultures, or things.
