What Is Party Book?

Party Book is an online catalog of social events for members of the Buckley Community, hosted by the Buckley Community. Hosts pay for the parties, and people pay to come to the events.

100% of the proceeds support Buckley’s financial aid and professional development programs.

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.

Attending these events is a great way for you to have fun, build community, and strengthen bonds while supporting The Buckley School! 

We hope you have fun spending time with old friends and making new ones while supporting Buckley!
