  • Kindergarten Orientation

    Pearl Buck will be hosting a Kindergarten Orientation on Tuesday, May 16th, 2017, for kindergarten students who will be attending Pearl Buck in the fall of 2017.  Students must be registered with the school District in order to attend this event.

    If your child is registered to attend kindergarten at Pearl Buck in the fall of 2017, please follow this link to select your visitation time.

    Attendance at this orientation is NOT required.  This event is provided as an opportunity to introduce your child to the school and some of its teachers and staff.  During the 1-hour visit, parents will receive information about Pearl S. Buck Elementary, hear an overview of kindergarten, and have an opportunity to ask questions of the staff.  Incoming kindergartners will have time to play while teachers observe and meet with each child. Because of this personalized attention, we ask parents/guardians to arrive on time and depart at the end of their scheduled session.  This will help us to remain on time for each successive group.

    Please call the school at 215-809-6300 with any questions about the orientation.

  • Office reminders

    • Please remember to bring I.D. with you when picking up your child. If someone else routinely picks-up your child, please make sure to list them as an emergency contact AND remind them to have proper I.D. when they arrive.
    • Please be sure to write your child's teacher a note regarding ANY changes to your child's afternoon routines. For last-minute changes, please call the school office at 215-809-6300 and speak with one of our secretaries.
    • Our lost and found is growing. It is full of coats, fleece jackets, hats, scarves, etc. Please have your child check for lost personal items. Parents may also visit the lost and found. Please check-in at the office first.

  • Be food allergy aware!

    Due to varied allergy and dietary needs, please contact your child's teacher before sending in food for students other than your child (e.g. for birthday celebrations, class parties). Do not send in any items until the teacher has responded and confirmed the appropriateness of your request. Also, students should not share food at any time during school - even with a close friend. A seemingly harmless food item may unexpectedly contain allergens, or interact with other medical conditions. Depending on the health needs in the classroom, teachers may choose to avoid food-oriented experiences altogether.
