    Dear Buder Elementary Family,

        My heart is heavy as I reflect on the events that have occurred not only this past week but over
    the past several years. Like many of you, I find myself outraged by the ongoing racial violence
    across our country. The horrific killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis—as well as so many
    other injustices--are truly unacceptable.
        I am unsure if reaffirming what we believe as a school community is enough to dismantle
    systems of oppression. But I also know that moments like this are why we teach. Our school
    prepares kids to change our world for the better.
    We are blessed for our school community to create a positive learning environment for all
    Buder students—one that is equitable and inclusive. Our school community shares the
    following beliefs which drive our work:
        We believe it is critical to form strong relationships with every child and family,
    acknowledging their identity, background, and previous academic experience. We love to
    laugh, joke, and have fun with our students.
    We believe in doing everything we can to support our students, and we provide rich life
    experiences with challenging academic opportunities.
    We believe in each of our students and staff members to lead our school and our
    community.
         My hope is that our families will engage in conversations about how we must do better. We can
    learn together through these resources, as we move towards action:
    • Your Kids Aren't Too Young to Talk About Race: Resource Roundup
    • An Essential Reading Guide For Fighting Racism
    • Resources for Talking About Race, Racism, Racialized Violence with Kids from the
    Center for Racial Justice in Education
         Learning is the first step. Action is the next. At Buder, we know that we are one team: inspiring
    each other every day to grow in every way. And we know that our team must lean into each
    other now, more than ever.
     
    Sincerely,

    Anna Russell
    Principal
     
     
     
     

     

Principal's Corner

  • Welcome to the Buder Elementary Principal's Corner

    Ms. Russell

    Thank you for your interest in Buder Elementary School! We serve students in preschool through 5th grade and are located in the South Hampton neighborhood of Saint Louis. Our neighborhood school, located at Macklind and Lansdowne, is nestled in a culturally diverse community.

    Buder Elementary is focused on developing both the character traits and academic skills for every student. The staff is exceptional in their respective fields: from developing a science learning garden with the Missouri Botanical Garden to bridging language programs with ESOL instruction to delivering innovative lessons through our 1:1 technology initiative to integrated arts instruction through our Springboard partnership. Buder Elementary is a dynamic learning environment where we value students’ culture and push academic excellence.

    We are eager to work with our parents and community members to build stronger support networks for our students. If you are interested in a tour of our school, feel free to contact me to schedule one.

     

    Warm Regards,
    Anna Russell, Principal
