Dear Buckley Community,
A huge and heartfelt thank you to every member of our community who supported the We Are Buckley event on Friday, May 14th. Together, we were able to raise more than $80,000 in support of Buckley - a huge accomplishment, especially for our second entirely virtual event of the year!
On May 14th, attendees viewed the premiere of the We Are Buckley video featuring a few local celebrities - your children- and filmed and produced by Stephanie Long! Click here to view it online

I would like to express my gratitude to Marjorie Jean-Paul, Director of Development and Alumni Relations, for choosing “We Are Buckley” as the theme for our second festive virtual gathering this year and bringing out the unique "I am" stories that make us Buckley.
Our sincere appreciation goes out to everyone who helped to make this event such a great success: Parents' Association Co-Presidents Marissa Lazos and Jennifer Yee for their leadership of this event and this whole year; Laura Ferrucci for putting together all our Buckley Swag Bag raffle items and chairing the Class Basket Raffle; all the Class Parents and volunteers who collected items for the class baskets; the parents who hosted pre-party trivia rooms; and everyone who inspired and participated in the I Am project. Of course, this event could not have happened without the energy and creativity of Stephanie Long who has done so much to keep everyone involved in our community during this challenging year.
Finally, thanks to everyone who supported the We Are Buckley fundraiser - whether you purchased a raffle ticket, Golden Ticket box, or Party Pack, underwrote a portion of the event, or purchased a Journal Ad or live auction item. Your gift is an investment not only in the school, but in the future of each of our students. Thank you.
We are so fortunate to have the support of our community. As we prepare for the end of the fiscal year, I have asked Marjorie and Stephanie to wrap up the 2020-2021 Annual Fund by reaching out to families who have not made a gift yet!

Thank you for your enthusiastic support and dedication to our school.
