About the Parents' Association

  • Much has been said about the special nature of the Buckley community. The school's small size, communal belief in the tenets of The Buckley Commitment and Mission help connect families and students alike.
  • The Buckley Parents’ Association (PA) brings together more than six hundred families to support the school.
  • For more information or to get involved, please contact Nicholas D'Ambra, 2019–2020 Buckley Parents' Association president at pa@buckley.org.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Parent volunteers set a strong example for our students. They spend thousands of hours taking on crucial tasks at Buckley — from working in the library and collecting used uniforms to being part of the school's community service efforts.
  • Through a variety of fundraising events each year, the PA makes important contributions to the school’s operating and financial aid budgets.
  • The PA has fulfilled a $500,000 pledge for the first phase of the Dare to be More campaign and is in the midst of fulfilling the first $1 million pledge to the second phase of that campaign.


  • The PA works to build strong relationships between parents and the school.
  • All families are welcome to become involved with association-led events, such as the annual back-to-school barbecue and Buckley Fair.
  • PA involvement is varied and flexible to meet every schedule. Meetings are held alternately in mornings and evenings throughout the school year and options to volunteer can be found on large or small committees. 
  • All funds raised by the PA are donated to the school to directly support Buckley programs. Click here to read more about upcoming PA events.

Parents' Association President

  • Nicholas D'Ambra, 2019-2020 PA President, is excited to embark on this new year at Buckley. Together with his husband, they have a fifth grader this year and a daughter in Pre-K. They have been a part of the Buckley community since their son started kindergarten in 2014. 
  • Nicholas has been a proud volunteer of the Parents' Association as a Party Book Chair and Fair Chair, as well as a member of several committees, including Welcome Committee and Community Service.
  • He is looking forward to seeing as many parents as possible in our community volunteering together to make this year a fantastic one for all.
