Race for Education

The Pearl Buck annual Race for Education was held on Friday, April 29th. Parents, students, and Pearl Buck Staff braved the cloudy, damp weather to participate in the campus walk. Thank you to our PTO for their behind-the-scenes efforts to organize the fundraiser, make the balloon arch, and collect for the gift baskets. Also, we'd like to thank all of our families, friends, and extended family for contributing to this successful fundraiser.

Fourth Grade Travels To Silver Lake Nature Center

Our fourth grade students spent much of the day on Thursday enjoying the great outdoors, learning about nature, ecosystems, and...BUGS! Although a little wet, it was a great day to be at the nature center.

Parents, students and staff enjoyed a Thursday evening at Pearl Buck, perusing the various collections of student artwork. Thanks to Mrs. McGuigan and Mrs. Potter for their hard work pulling together the various displays. The halls never looked so great!

Local Scouts Help Out

The boys from the Tiger Den (1st grade) and Wolf Den (2nd grade) of Pack 316 had a successful clean up at Pearl Buck Elementary School on Saturday, April 23rd. Thanks to our scouts for helping to keep the Pearl Buck campus clean!

1st Day School Supplies

Pearl Buck Elementary has partnered with 1st day School Supplies to provide parents with the convenience of ordering school supplies online and having them shipped directly to Pearl Buck for the start of the 2016-2017 school year.

Supply kits are filled with items common to homerooms in each grade level. You do not need to know your child's 2016-2017 teacher. If you order, your child will have his or her supplies waiting within their classroom on the first day of school. You may begin to place your orders now. All orders are due by June 30, 2016.

This is not a fundraiser, and participation is OPTIONAL. More information will be headed your way over the next month.
