During these summer months, we hope you are taking time to appreciate the beauty around you. This wildflower and butterfly photograph was taken by rising 10th grader Lily Pepper. Find the full visual art and photography gallery here.
We are so proud of our fourth grade Bees and all of the accomplisments they have made at Clark Elementary! Since we couldn’t be face-to-face, we celebrated our annual Fourth Grade Step Up Ceremony virtually on June 3, 2020. Enjoy!
Congratulations to our Girls Excelling in Math team (GEM) for their third place finish in the hands-on challenge in the annual competition held each spring at The Village School.
Led by coach Liz Petry, the team had to work together to build the tallest, free-standing tower out of recyclable materials that could hold up to six eggs. In addition to the hands-on challenge, there was a team paper-pencil math challenge and an individual paper-pencil challenge.
Way to go Riley, Cici, Ellie, Alex, Ruby, Noura, callie, Eleanor, and Charlotte!
Greenbrier celebrated our fourth graders with the annual 4th Grade Moving Up Ceremony on June 5, 2020.
This year’s virtual ceremony featured members of our fourth grade class that will be moving on to fifth grade as well as congratulatory messages and well-wishes from administrators, teachers and staff.
Buford seventh and eighth grade students had the opportunity to meet with a variety of elected officials throughout the spring thanks to the efforts of history teacher Matt Resnick.
About 30 students joined the virtual forums to engage online with local leaders such as Del. Sally Hudson, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Charlottesville city councilors to learn about their jobs and ask questions.
We are excited to welcome our new Buford Trojans when schools re-open. For now, get to know your future school by joining Principal Dr. Jesse Turner, Assistant Principal Kevin Anderson, and School Counselor Joshua Epps for a virtual tour made especially for you!
Also, we hope the video below helps you see the many faces of Buford Middle School. We can’t wait to meet you face-to-face. Go Trojans!
Hello to all of our new and returning students and families! We have missed being together this spring and thought you might like to see some familiar faces!
For our new students, we hope this introduces you to the many faces of Buford Middle and can’t wait to meet you! Go Trojans!
