What Is Party Book?

Party Book is an online catalog of social events 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 LOT of 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. 
Attending these events is a great way for you to have fun, build community, and strengthen bonds while supporting The Buckley School! 

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!
