A message from your PTA President
Welcome back to school, Buckhorn Bears! I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and is now ready for the new school year. It has been fun being back on campus catching up with old friends, making new friends, and meeting all of our new Buckhorn Teachers! Once again, we have an amazing group of volunteers, and I am looking forward to working with all of you!
The Buckhorn PTA has already been very busy preparing for this new school year. We have hosted a Welcome Back luncheon for our teachers and staff in August, participated in Meet the Teacher night, hosted the first day of school Boo Hoo/Yahoo breakfast, held our annual Volunteer and Homeroom Parent Orientation, established a new Guard Dogs Dads program, and inducted this year’s 5th grade patrols.
We are very excited to start our annual fundraiser with Yankee Candle! PTA fundraising is what allows us to have an operational budget and provide all the wonderful programs for our school community, teachers and students. Funding is critical so please consider supporting us! As always, donations in lieu of a purchase is appreciated. Many large companies will provide matching donations so check you’re your company if you are making a donation. More information will be coming home soon about the fundraising and ordering.
We have made some exciting calendar changes this year. Our annual carnival has been moved to the fall! Save the date for Friday, November 15th for our twenty first annual event. If you have attended in the past you know that this is something students, staff, and parents never want to miss. If you are new to Buckhorn you will be in for an evening of fantastic family fun.
We know that you all are very busy, so we try to keep everyone informed with what we have going on. If you are interested in being a volunteer at our school, please contact Melissa Riley or Danielle Santiago at email@example.com. They can give you the volunteer opportunities that we have available. No matter how much or how little time you are able to give, we appreciate you being involved!
