Congratulations to our 2nd Quarter Student Leadership Preschool Recipients: Jayden Holmes, Richard Peters, and William Ross. Students who have shown exemplary leadership qualities inside the classroom, as well as, within our school, are recognized and celebrated with a quarterly Leadership Breakfast.

Parents of the recipients attended a Leadership Breakfast with their student on December 18th. The breakfast was hosted by Ms. Knapp and featured guest speaker, Sam Oliver,  Buckeye High School student. 






Our next late arrival day is Wednesday, March 13. Our last late arrival day is May 8. 

In our ongoing effort to reduce the amount of teacher professional development during the school day as well as reducing the amount of time substitutes are in our classrooms, we are again implementing seven late arrivals to the school year.

School will start two hours later on these dates. If your child rides a Buckeye School bus they will be picked up two hours later than their regular time. School drop off will be 10:20 am for Primary and Intermediate students. School dismissal times will not be affected.

Buckeye Elementary car riders will begin to unload at 10:20 am. The start of school for the Primary, Intermediate and Preschool is 10:35 am.

The philosophy of Buckeye Local Schools Preschool is based on meeting the individual, developmental needs of all children with and without special needs. The developmental preschool seeks to provide an environment that encourages all children to explore, ask questions and learn things that he/she needs and wants to know about their world.

Our preschool program follows the Ohio Department of Education Early Learning Content Standards in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science. The curriculum provides a balance of child-centered and teacher facilitated activities that encourage children to investigate, manipulate and experiment as they construct their own knowledge.

The preschool curriculum provides the foundation for future academic success by: building upon previous knowledge and skills; aligning with the Ohio Early Learning Content Standards; and by providing individualized and integrated approaches to assessment, curriculum and instruction. The curriculum addresses key areas of child development including aesthetic and artistic development, emotional and social development, intellectual development, physical development and well being and development of responsibility.
