Thank You and Enjoy Summer Break!

We made it! Many congrats to the students on the successful completion of another school year, especially since this year looked so very different than the ones before it. Special recognition goes out to our graduating fifth-graders, who are moving on the middle school in the fall. It was wonderful celebrating with you in our drive-through parade. We hope your years at Buckman have not only given you a wonderful education, but also many fond memories.

The Buckman Foundation is delighted to share that we met our goal for the annual auction, and will be providing updates on staffing as they unfold. It was amazing to gather virtually to celebrate our school and all things Buckman! We are so grateful to our community for the continued support of our students and staff, and we’d also like to thank this year’s sponsors: West Coast Grocery Company, Portland Braces, The Modern Orthodontist, and Meat for Cats and Dogs.

We wish our entire Buckman family the very best of summer fun, and we look forward to reconnecting with you in the fall.
