WeatherSTEM Comes to BA
Thanks to the generosity of the Lord family, Buford Academy has received our very own WeatherSTEM unit. The WeatherSTEM unit is an integration of weather sensors, the data gathered and stored by the sensors, and a dynamic display of the data in a website that showcases the current weather, weather forecasts, data mining tools, lessons & activities, weather notifications and more! The best part is that it carries the Buford logo proudly on its side. This link will remain a permanent part of the Buford Academy web page as well. Visit our BRAND NEW STEM page. It is located under STEM in the STUDENT ZONE....check it out today!

BA PTO is organizing a Book Drive for our Media Center. Together, we can help ALL our kids succeed in school and in life-simply by giving them books! Let's each take some time to clean out our cluttered shelves of books your family has outgrown, so that we can give those books a second life with a child who would love them. You can help by donating new or gently used books. Any questions, please contact PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
