How do you learn?

As the end of the school year is upon us and finals are approaching…ask yourself, do you know how you learn? Are you an auditory learner? Visual learner? Utilize your strengths and natural talents for studying. Study with friends if you need information reiterated or study alone if quiet is best.

World Book Day is Today!

Today is #WorldBookDay and Buckley Ed is celebrating!
It is observed annually on April 23rd “to celebrate literature and reading.” The day was officially designated by the United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1995 in order to give “an opportunity to recognize the power of books to change our lives for the better and to support books and those who produce them.”

We at Buckley Education support and encourage our students to read and read often! It broadens the vocabulary and promotes the use of imagination. AND…reading makes for good writers!
