A warm welcome to the a new school year to Buckman families, friends, and community members! We’re excited to get the 2018-2019 school year underway and are looking forward to a fun-filled back-to-school season.
Some students have started their school supplies shopping, the PTA and Foundation are already at work getting welcome packets in order, and Buckman staff will be returning to school tomorrow to begin preparing for the school year.
If you are new to Buckman, you will be getting tons of information shortly! In the meantime, a few resources that might be valuable include:
This website! This is a parent-run site that keeps the Buckman community informed on school events, fundraisers, and other updates. Of particular interest is the events calendar; subscribe to the feed (use the “Subscribe” link in the bottom-right corner of the calendar) to get Buckman updates to your calendar of choice.
The official PPS Buckman Elementary page. This is a great resource for finding teacher contact information, school newsletter arches, and district information.
The school newsletter comes out on Wednesdays to your designated email. Look for it soon! It gives you more detailed information about specific events, as well as contributions from SUN program offerings.
Lots more heading your way soon. In the meantime, soak up those final rays of summer and get ready for a great school year.
