Stay Connected!

Our PTA Google communication group allows parents to stay involved with what activities are happening on campus. We share ways to volunteer or just beware of what is coming up on the Buchser or district calendar. You don't not need to be a PTA member to be on the email group, although we would encourage you to be, because, after all, PTA supports your student.

There are a couple of ways to stay connected with the Buchser PTA and community:

1. Buchser PTA Schoolloop Page

Upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, documents, and more will be posted right here.

2. Facebook Group

Those who have a Facebook account can stay in touch with the Buchser community by joining the Buchser Middle School PTA Facebook Group. The membership requires approval. Please submit your request on Facebook.
