Principal's Message

The mission of Haralson County Schools is to produce high-achieving students who will

graduate and become productive and responsible citizens. Buchanan Elementary (BES) will

accomplish this mission by setting goals in our school improvement plan and monitoring student

progress throughout the school year while encouraging student social development. During the

school year, Buchanan Elementary plans to strive for continued improvement, celebrate our

many successes and reinvigorate Rebel traditions as we embrace the ever-changing future.


We have accomplished many goals such as improved test scores, improved literacy rates of

students, improved student attendance rate, and a decreased number of discipline referrals. We

will continue to raise the bar. We are very proud of our faculty, staff and students for their hard

work and consistent pursuit to achieve our goals.


BES along with the support of the district office understands the need to promote technology in

order to prepare the students for the 21st century. BES has a one to one ratio for students and

Chromebooks. Students will be given the opportunity to utilize technology in the classroom on a

daily basis. This will also support 100% of students testing online for Georgia Milestone..


As a leader of this continued growth and principal of Buchanan Elementary School, I am proud

to serve the students, faculty, and community. I am dedicated and determined to reach our

goals, and value the input of our stakeholders. Contact the school for assistance or to learn

more about our initiatives for this school year. Please know we have a TEAM of individuals who

are vested in your student and are ready to assist you.


I encourage you to join us on our path to greater success.


BES is making this the best year yet!!


B elieve ~ E xcel ~ Succeed


Ethelyn Johnson, Principal of BES
