Buckingham Elementary wouldn't be able to provide the wonderful resources and enrichment opportunities to our after school students if it wasn't for our wonderful community partners. These organizations volunteer their time to work with our students to run some of our programs. We would like to thank our 2019-2020 after school community partners for their commitment to the students of BES.
