Hi Buchser Families:


Buchser's Book Fair of 2018 will be here soon and will be held in the Library from January 19 through­ January 26, 2018. We need YOU to help make this successful. 


Please click here to SignUp!


Three reasons why we need you to volunteer:


Money raised from the Book Fair goes to:

1. Teen Read Week

2. Purchase California Young Reader Medal Nominees

3. More books for Library as well as classroom literature novel sets. 


Help is needed to set up the fair, assist with sales during the week of the fair, and pack up the fair at the end of the week.   We appreciate those who consider signing up for one or more shifts!


Thanks in advance for all you do,

Mervat Bentley

Buchser PTA

Parent Volunteers

All parents who have been requested to volunteer on campus, must fill out a volunteer application and return to Annette Vizcarra, Secretary, in the office. The application needs to be accompanied by a current TB test and a copy of your government ID.  If you are a parent returning to volunteer at Buchser, you just need to have a current volunteer application on file.   Volunteer Packet - 2016-2017.pdf

You do not need to enroll your child at Buchser if your child is already attending one of our Elementary Schools.  You do not need to bring documents to the school until August.
