UPDATE YOUR STUDENT ON REGISTRATION GATEWAY
At the beginning of each year, parents must update student information in Registration Gateway. Our purpose is to have the most current and complete information for our students so we may assist, support, and serve them under any circumstances.
In order to update student information, parents will need to log in to the secure online portal Registration Gateway at: https://update.buckeyeschools.org/. The Username is your student's ID number (this is the same number as your child’s lunch code, and it is available on report cards, in Progress Book, and in PayForIt). The Password is your student's birthday (MM/DD/YYYY). Please be sure to use 8 digits and include the two backslashes.

Twenty five Intermediate students showed off their creative talents in the Invention Convention! Students were asked to design, develop and market a solution to a real world problem they had researched. Students had their work on display all day and all classes were invited to come down to see what they created as well as vote on their favorite!

1st: Solar Ball-anket (Wyatt Kunz)
2nd: The Super Suitcase (Nola Nowotniak)
3rd: Brightenbach Generator (AJ Barinelli/Eddie Neitenbach)

Congratulations also to Keegan Lockard who won the People's Choice Award. He received the most votes from students who voted for their favorite invention.
