Last PTO Meeting of the School Year

This Tuesday, May 5 is the last PTO meeting of the school year!  Hillary Mountis & Meghan Eckert have done an amazing job as Co Presidents and will be handing over the reigns to Laura Miller & Swath Iyengar.

Change of Venue

PTO Meetings are usually held in the Library at Bucher on the first Tuesday of the month (7:00 pm – 8:00 pm).  This meeting will be in the Art Room next to the library due to Book Fair set up.

If you are thinking about any involvement (big or small) with PTO in 2015-2016, this meeting is a great time to attend and get your ideas heard before planning begins!  We welcome all parental figures, with any willingness to help – be it to volunteer for an hour, bake a treat, manage a fundraiser, plan an event, solicit donations, or any of the other tasks that fall to the hardworking parents of the PTO.

Bring your friends, start your own committee, or create your own fundraiser.  If you are bringing a big idea, be ready to chair it!

Thanks so much to the exiting PTO members, as their 4th graders head off to the next stage, we will miss you!!


PTO Meeting Tonight! (April 7, 2015)

If you can make time this evening, please think about coming to the PTO meeting at 7 pm in the Bucher Library (2nd floor).  It is open to all parents and we would love to see some new faces and get some new ideas in the room!

We fund class trips and put on fun school events, as well as teacher appreciation events & some limited classroom supplies. Your help is needed to continue to grow and expand the things we can do for Bucher’s great students, teachers, & staff!



If you are interested in helping out with PTO this year or next, stop by the PTO meeting tonight (February 3rd) in the Bucher Library (2nd floor) at 7 pm.

New members are always welcome and encouraged to attend!

Bucher Bistro

Opportunities to help out are coming up with the Bucher Bistro on February 12.  The school cafeteria will be transformed into a “fine dining” experience for the students of Bucher Elementary.  There will be tablecloths, decorations and music for them to enjoy.  Parents will serve the children either their packed or bought lunch (fancy!).

We encourage students to dress up nicely and use their best table manners!  Help is needed for those that have their clearances through the district office.  Email Kerry Dierwechter or Heather Groff to volunteer.
