Hello to all new and returning Buckman Bears! We are so excited to kick off the school year! With grades 2-5 returning today, and our K-1 kids
This year will certainly look different than last year, and look different than the years before. We know that families have a lot questions, and we hope to get information to you in a timely and efficient manner. Here are some of the ways we communicate with our community:
Konstella – This is an opt-in messaging system used by many staff members, the PTA, and the Foundation to communicate information about school happenings. Sign up for your account at https://www.konstella.com.
Buckman Community Facebook Group – Request to join this informal community group, where parents, families, and staff ask questions and share feedback. https://www.facebook.com/groups/951435464869628
Weekly Newsletter – Many groups regularly contribute information to the school’s weekly newsletter, sent each week by the school. If you are not receiving the school newsletter, check with administrators to be sure they have the correct email address on file.
Buckmanelementary.org – (This website!) – Updates are posted to the PTA- and Foundation-led school website (not the same as the PPS site) throughout the school year. You may also subscribe to the school-wide calendar via the website or via Konstella.
Other resources that may be of particular interest this school year include:
- Schoolpay is an online platform for school supplies payments
- PPS ForwardTogether – 2021-2022 Back-to-School Family Guide – District resource for COVID safety measures and precautions
- PPS Nutrition Services – Elementary School Lunch Menu and Breakfast Menu
