Buckingham Elementary School
Welcome to Buckingham Elementary and an exciting new school year! We look forward to knowing each of our families well and working together to create an inclusive, supportive community; a school that is welcoming and joyful for all. Stephanie Jensen, Vice Principal and I are honored and excited to serve Buckingham students, staff and families!
Our school's educational program offers a rigorous approach to teaching the core subjects: reading, writing, and mathematics. These subjects are further enriched by an integrated S.T.E.M focus (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). Through meaningful learning activities grounded in STEM, students develop and apply their skills and knowledge to real-world questions. This approach fosters critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity, which we refer to as the 4 C's at Buckingham Elementary. These essential life and career-ready skills are fully supported by our dedicated staff through hands-on, minds-on, and joyful learning.
Belonging is fundamental in a learning community where everyone can flourish.
Feeling at home, being recognized, accepted, and valued are the key elements that foster a sense of belonging for students, staff, and families. Buckingham cultivates a deep care for each student, nurturing their unique academic and social-emotional growth. We extend this care to every family we serve and to our dedicated staff who passionately educate and support Buckingham learners each day. Whether you are a student, parent, caregiver, or visitor, our ultimate goal is to create a strong sense of belonging for everyone at Buckingham Elementary. We firmly believe that we all have a place here!
We value our partnerships with every family and truly believe that the strength of our community influences the experience of each student at Buckingham. As your child's first teacher, you play a vital role in supporting and extending their classroom learning. We warmly invite and deeply appreciate your wisdom and active participation as we journey through the year together.
Thank you for your trust and for sharing your children with us, each day!
