Buckingham's New Sign Installed
In Celebration of our 60th Year, Buckingham Elementary recently contracted a redesign and installation for our new sign located in our front yard! The previous sign was in need of repair, faded and beginning to deteriorate. Through the help of Bob Shaw Signs, much of the material was recycled and implemented in the update helping with reducing cost. The sign now has a new coat of paint with some style-improvements in addition to the castle motif for our Mighty Knights! If you look closely, you will see larger turrets at the top, the stone castle, and our logo.
Special thanks to the Buckingham PTO for their support efforts to "SHOW" the community who we are!
