Today is Day 6 of the 6-Day Cycle






  • The East Buchanan Football team came out victorious on Homecoming night against Maquoketa Valley 48-12! The Bucs had a sluggish first half and tied MV 12-12 at half. After some adjustments, the Bucs came out firing on all cylinders in the 2nd half and outscored the Wildcats 36-0. Great way to end a great week of Homecoming. Now onto Bellevue on Friday night!!!! LET’S GO BUCS!
  • Homecoming 2022 is over and there are a lot of people that need to be thanked and recognized. First off, the EB Student Council went above and beyond planning, organizing, and getting things ready, especially the executive council of Jordyne, Averiel, Keeley, Ben, and Ebbie!! All of the class sponsors who spent last Sunday in the school assisting with hallway decorating, I know it isn’t always the most enjoyable but all the hallways looked awesome this year, which is a tribute to the students and sponsors working together. Thank you to our judges for both the halls and floats, Mr. Doese, Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Steinkamp, Ms Levine, Mrs. Beatty, Mr. Ersland, Mrs. Dutler, Ms Schoonover, and Mr. Machacek. I need to thank the staff that came and chaperoned the dance, Mr. Dockstader, Mr. Unwin, Mrs. Reck, Mrs. Fisher, Mrs. Berns, and Mrs. Dolan…we couldn’t have managed without them being there. Thanks to Mike Ellis and Erica Hoffman for running the music and photography at the dance. Thanks to the band, cheerleaders, and dance team for helping make the celebration great throughout. Great job to the junior speakers at the pep rally and halftime celebration. Thank you to the car owners for bringing those nice convertibles for the candidates to ride in. Thank you to the parents and community as they supported the activities throughout the week. Lastly, I need to give special thanks to Mrs. Reck for all the help she gave in the office by selling tickets, delivering things that were ordered throughout the week. Things like this take a village to pull off and it is great to have the help and support of everyone here to make it happen.
