Buckeye Blast for NOVEMBER, 4th 2022
Halloween Parade, Party and Weekend Fun
Buckeye Elementary Families:
Thank you to all who donated items and/or volunteered to help make this past Friday such a memorable experience for our students. Being able to see the joy and laughter in the students faces during the parade was priceless. To see the students faces light up during the festivities, hearing them talk about the fun they had when they were leaving, the delicious food they ate, and seeing the huge smiles is an affirmation of what helps make Buckeye such an amazing place.
We would also like to thank everyone who came out for our Trunk or Treat event on Saturday. We had over 30 trunks passing out LOTS of candy to over 400 kids on a beautiful, sunny day. Thank you to everyone that attended and thank you to those who helped make this such a great event.
Thank you for all that you do to create these wonderful, memorable experiences for our students and our community.
