From the Principal

We are nearing the end of the 3rd nine weeks and it is our hope that your child is doing well academically and socially. We begin our new tutoring program this week. Students will be on the hall from 7:30 until 8:05 to receive tutoring in any subject they or their teachers feel will be beneficial to them. We ask that parents encourage their children to take advantage of this opportunity! We want your child to succeed and know that you want the same. We are still encouraging children to read at every opportunity. Book clubs, movie trips, and motivational speakers are all tools that our media specialist, Mrs. Hallman has taken advantage of to instill that love of reading within your child. We want Buford Middle School to be the best. If you have ideas about improvement, let us hear from you!
