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 its mission help connect families and students alike. The Buckley Parents’ Association (PA) brings together more than six hundred families to support the school.

Events

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.

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.
