Buchanan Elementary Bears


Who was the kindergarten teachers back in 2002-2003 For the life of me I can’t remember my teachers name
Who were the kindergarten and pre k teachers in 2002-2003 ?
Buchanan ES Girls on the Run 5k Saturday, May 7th! These girls trained for 9 weeks and ran a 3.2-milemile race! I am very proud of these girls!
Thank you to Buchanan Elementary Bears for nominating us for Community Partner of the Year! It is an honor and a joy to partner with you in support of the education community.
This we are celebrating Lindsay Floyd, a 4th grade ELA teacher at Buchanan Elementary School (Buchanan Elementary Bears) in Oklahoma City Public Schools. This superhero teacher does it all. She coaches basketball for her school-based team through the YMCA, in on the school leadership team, and Earth Day committee! (Swipe to check out photos!) What keeps Ms.Floyd going? HER STUDENTS! Ms.Floyd says she is "so impressed by their resilience and their love for learning. Their willingness to show up each day ready to give their best motivates [her] to do the same for them."

We asked Ms.Floyd what she wanted those outside of the field of education to know about supporting teachers and students this year. She had this to say.

"When you vote, consider how teachers, students, and parents will be impacted. Even if you are not able to give time or money, show your support for education when you interact with others...especially children. Ask what book they are reading. Ask them what they are learning in school. Ask what their favorite subject is, and what they want to be when they grow up. It is important to model lifelong learning, so share something that you recently learned. I think we need a cultural shift towards valuing education more highly, and the easiest and most organic way to do this is through our conversations with others."

Join us in celebrating Ms.Floyd! 🎉
students and staff had “2” much fun today!

Today’s unique date of 2/22/22 falls on Tuesday! We saw plenty of wonderful tutus, perfect pairs, dynamic duos, terrific twin outfits, and more!

Check out how some of our schools celebrated!

We had a fantastic Bear Beginnings assembly today! Jimmy the Bear congratulated our Winter Reading Challenge winners and some of our teachers and students dressed up for the 100th day of school.

¡La asamblea de Bear Beginnings fue muy divertida hoy! Jimmy el Oso felicitó a los ganadores de nuestra Desafío Invernal de Lectura, y algunos de nuestros profesores y estudiantes se vistieron especial para el 100o día de escuela.


Reminder: Today is a regular school day! We're happy to see you back at school today.

¡Las clases continúan hoy! Nos alegramos de verte a la escuela hoy.


Today is Groundhog Day! This unique celebration started in England with people wishing for a shorter winter. German people used a hedgehog to predict winter's duration, and when immigrants arrived in the United States, they transitioned from a hedgehog to a groundhog! Find out more about the holiday here:

¡Hoy es el Día de la marmota! Esta única celebración empezó en Ingleterra con los deseos de un invierno más corto. En Alemania, se usaba un erizo para predicar la duración del invierno, y cuando inmigrantes alemánes llegaron en los Estados Unidos, cambiaron a un marmón! Se encuentra más sobre esta tradición aquí: https://www.groundhog.org/legend-and-lore


El 2 de febrero es un día sin instrucción y los estudiantes no necesitan iniciar sesión ni completar ningún trabajo desde casa.

Todos los edificios escolares y oficinas administrativas de OKCPS estarán cerrados el jueves.

: Due to winter weather, Thursday, February 2 will be a snow day! This means February 2 is a non-instructional day and students do not need to log in or complete any work from home. A decision on activities will be made later today.

All school buildings and administrative offices will be closed on Thursday.

Stay safe and warm, and we hope our students enjoy this snow day!


Today is ! Reading with your child is so special! And it has so many benefits.

What is your favorite book to read?❤️📚


Happy February, Bears! This calendar shows some of the important and exciting events coming up this month. As you can see, we have parent teacher conferences and a staff development day (which means no school for students!). We also have Kona Ice coming on the 8th and an author visit for Pre-K through 2nd grade students. Not pictured are lots of different events and activities for Black History Month throughout February.

¡Felíz febrero, Ositos! Este calendario incluye algunos de los eventos importantes que vienen esta mes. Las conferencias padre-profesor y un día de desarrollo para empleados (día sin clases para los alumnos!). Tambien viene Kona Ice el 8 y una visita de autora para los estudiantes de Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1o y 2o grados. No están en este calendario, pero tenemos eventos y actividades para la Mes de Historia Afroamericana también.


: Due to additional forecasted winter weather, Wednesday, February 1 will be a snow day! This means February 1 is a non-instructional day and students do not need to log in or complete any work from home. All activities have also been canceled.

All OKCPS school buildings and administrative offices will be closed on Wednesday.

We will update families as needed through social media, phone, and text messages, on the district website.


Our Bear Beginnings challenge was to work on a puzzle today. Show us what you’re doing!

Nuestro desafío de Bear Beginnings esta mañana fue trabajar en un rompecabezas. ¡Muéstranos lo que estás haciendo!


: Due to continued winter weather and hazardous road conditions, students will learn from home Tuesday, January 31. Students should work asynchronously by logging in to Canvas or by completing work sent home from school. Please communicate with your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

After-school and evening activities for Tuesday, January 31 have also been canceled.

We will keep families updated as needed through social media, phone, and text messages, on the district website.


: Below freezing temperatures could cause some of our bus routes to experience significant delays. To prevent students from being outside for an extended period of time, if you are able, please drop your student(s) off at school versus having them riding the school bus.

The National Weather Service suggests dressing children in layers, including wearing a hat, winter coat and gloves to help protect your student from the extreme cold.

Please be patient if your child’s bus is late picking them up or dropping them off. Your child’s school will be lenient on tardiness related to late buses.

We thank you for your patience and continued support of OKCPS.
