Dear Carman-Buckner Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am excited to be welcoming your children back to school! We eagerly anticipate the start of the new school year and our continued commitment to building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. We will focus on initiatives to help our students grow in developing 21st Century skills for a successful future that will undoubtedly help our students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our teaching teams will continue to embed critical thinking and collaboration across all areas of learning. We will also continue to ensure that the diverse needs of our students are met through small group instruction and school-wide implementation of reading and writing strategies to help students work towards academic mastery.

Carman-Buckner is committed to fostering a nurturing, safe environment for children, using data to inform instruction aligned with student needs, consistently implementing instructional strategies that increase students' achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.

As recipients of PBIS Midwest Recognition for our School-wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support, our deliberate work to instill tools for self-regulation and emotional wellness will carry on through lessons by our teachers and support staff. Carman-Buckner Elementary also received the 2022 Well-organized 5Essentials Recognition for school improvement efforts. We will continue the hard work to ensure our systems and structures meet the needs of every student every day.

One of the most significant characteristics of the Carman-Buckner learning community is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Carman-Buckner Elementary School of Excellence is where staff and families unite to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate, and members of a global society. We look forward to a great school year!

In partnership,

Mr. Roberto C. Silva
