What Is Party Book?

Party Book is an online catalog of social events exclusively for members of the Buckley Community, hosted by the Buckley Community. Now more than ever, we understand the importance of connection and want to offer our community different ways to engage, interact and have a little fun along the way!
Parties will be fully hosted by Buckley families and any proceeds generated from Party Book will go directly back to the school. 

We understand everyone may feel differently about how and when coming together is appropriate, so with that in mind, Party Book has been built to include a number of different options for connection. We will offer both in-person and online parties and we have parties for Lower, Middle, and Upper School students, adults, and families. We will be adding to the Party Book catalog throughout the year so there will always be something new and exciting to take part in.
Attending these events is a great way for you to have fun, build community, and strengthen bonds while supporting The Buckley School! Parties will include baking lessons, movie nights, wine tastings, holiday crafting, and SO MUCH MORE! 

We are so grateful to so many families who are willing to share their homes, hobbies, and special talents with us – all in the spirit of community and connection. We hope you have fun spending time with old friends and making new ones while supporting Buckley!

Health & Safety

Party Book events are compliant with The Buckley School health and safety guidelines established by LADPH. Masks are recommended for all in-person events. A face covering is not required when eating or drinking.

Starting October 4, we will ask all adults attending Buckley-sponsored events, whether on campus or off, for either proof of vaccination or evidence of a negative Covid-19 PCR or antigen test taken within 72 hours of the event. We have made this decision to mitigate the spread of the virus and ease the comfort of those attending. We suggest that you have a photo of your vaccination card on your phone or in your wallet, or that you email proof ahead of time. All documents submitted will be confidential. Details about where to submit proof of vaccination or a negative test will be sent in advance of each event. For now, vaccination cards and test results for events can be sent to covidstatus@buckley.org. These are baseline guidelines. Party Book hosts may require more.
