The Van Buren 8th grade class is gearing up for their annual "Mr. Yunker Day of Service''. They are planning to rake leaves in the Village on Friday, November 5th. If you would like to have your yard raked, please email Adam Greer at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call the school (419-299-3384) and give them your name and address. Additionally, they are looking for rake donations. If you would like to donate a rake, please also contact Adam Greer or the school.
We need your help! Van Buren Middle School is happy to announce their partnership with our local chapter of Project Linus through our Textiles course! The class of 8th grade students will be crafting homemade blankets to donate to this wonderful organization that supports many children in our area, as they work to learn basic sewing techniques. To make this a success… WE NEED FABRIC! Please considering donating to this great cause, as our students work hard to help others. We are specifically looking for fleece fabric in sections that are 35inx35in or greater in size. Donations can be dropped off to the middle school office. Thank you in advance for your support! For more information about this organization, please visit https://www.projectlinus.org/
It's been far too long since we have been able to have an in person pep rally! On Friday afternoon, we had a beautiful day to bring our staff and students together to build some school spirit! #BeABlackKnight
As high school and middle school students entered the building for the first day of school on Tuesday, they were able to enjoy the newly renovated high school/middle school cafeteria, or what we are now calling the Van Buren Commons! #BeABlackKnight
