• The Buckman PTA works to enhance educational opportunities for students and families, support staff, and promote family involvement in our school, with emphasis on the arts and arts integration. The elected board is here to help advocated for parent, children, and staff needs.

    All community members are invited to participate in PTA events, including the bi-monthly evening PTA meetings focused on school and community related discussions and monthly morning coffee chats with the principal. We also host the annual Art Show and Sell, with local professional artists (and our own students) selling art and wares, and visiting author events.

    The PTA engages the parent community to help in the classroom, support community projects, improve the school campus, organize donations for families in need, and fundraising thru the Chinook Book and Scrips. It takes a village to make it happen, please reach out to us, and we’ll get you plugged in!

    You’re membership also makes a difference. Annual Buckman PTA dues are $20 per family or $12 individual and includes Oregon PTA Membership, which advocates for better education at the state level and provides supports our local community. Payment to the Buckman PTA can be left in the office PTA mailbox or mailed to the school.
