The Buckingham Parent Teacher Association
PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. The PTA at Buckingham Elementary does amazing things for the students and faculty at BES including funding field trips, student of the month celebrations, fourth grade graduation, and special parent involvement programs such as muffins in the mornings.
A strong PTA requires a number of volunteers and supporters to help advocate for our children, operate our fundraisers, and serve the needs of our student population. Please consider joining the PTA or volunteering for one of our many fundraisers or PTA sponsored events. Please see all of our PTA resources and upcoming events below.

PTA Bucky's Holiday Fair
Each year, the Buckingham Elementary School PTA hosts Bucky’s Holiday Fair. This special event takes place before the school’s holiday break and gives the more than 500 kids at our school (grades Pre-K through 4th grade) the opportunity to buy and wrap presents for their parents, siblings, grandparents, friends, and other relatives. The PTA obtains the items and then each student gets the chance to shop for gifts. Everything sells for $1. This is the most popular event our PTA hosts every year. This event relies on volunteers!
