Buchanan School Parent Council
OBJECTIVE OF THE PARENT COUNCIL...
is to make Buchanan School better for all students, their families/guardians and surrounding community. We help contribute financially to school activities and projects, offset field trip costs to make them more affordable for your family, and we strive to build a better sense of community for the school and its catchment area.

HOW DOES PARENT COUNCIL HELP YOU AND THE SCHOOL?
Parent council has financially assisted the school and families for many years. Recently, we have bought new equipment for the school's Science room, annually fund classroom projects and the schools' Patrol program. In addition, we financially offset classroom field trips costs to reduce how much families have to pay for their child to participate.
WHAT MAKES UP A PARENT COUNCIL AND WHEN DOES PARENT COUNCIL MEET?
Buchanan School Parent Council is a small group of parents and guardians including Principal Hoch who meet 6-8 times over the school year for about 45 minutes. Meetings are usually held on Wednesdays starting at 4:45 pm in the library. You can join the meetings at any time! There are no commitments or expectations to volunteer.
What are the benefits of attending a Parent Council meeting?
You will be in the know of all upcoming events and activities happening in the school. You can also help make decisions on where parent council should allocate money to various projects and initiatives to help improve your school!
