Bucher Holiday Shoppe

Bucher Holiday Shoppe – Be a Volunteer Helper!!

Hello everyone!  The Holiday Shoppe will be next week Tuesday, December 8th through Thursday, December 10th.  Each class has signed up for a time slot so the students can come in and make holiday purchases. We need your help to assist the students in making these purchases. You must have your clearances to be able to volunteer.

We have one-hour slots available each of these days.  Please make sure you DO NOT sign up for the time that your child will be making their purchases, as this will be a surprise for you!

Thank you so much for your help to make this a success for the school and the students.  We could not do this without you!

Sign up to volunteer here.


Let’s Give Thanks to Our Teachers


In celebration of Thanksgiving, who better to thank than our wonderful teachers and staff?

On November 23rd, our school is going to say thanks by providing a dinner to our teachers and staff, handmade with love, by our Bucher parents and students.

Please consider donating your time, food, or supplies to help make this event successful! We know many of you already donate in so many ways, so you are now obligated to participate.
