Ice Cream Social/Curriculum Night Information

Hi Buker Families,

This year we will be combining the Friends of Buker Ice Cream Social and the traditional Back to School Curriculum night. The combined event will take place from 5-7pm on Monday, September 16. 

Prior to the event, classroom and curriculum information will be sent home via email to families. This will give you a chance to review the curricular information before the event. At 5:00 we will welcome families into the classrooms. Families (including students) can visit the school, connect with current and past teachers, and ask any questions they have about this year's curriculum. There will not be any formal presentations. This will be a drop-in time for all the classrooms. Other support staff will be available as well. 

At 6:00, we will transition outside. Ice cream will be provided free of charge from Friends of Buker (Thanks, Friends!!). Also, pizza will be for sale as a fundraiser for fifth grade end-of-year activities. 

This format will allow for more personal connections between members of the Buker community. We will still have our normal Open House on March 9, 2020. 

I look forward to seeing everyone on the 16th!


Ben B. Schersten, M.Ed.
