Welcome returning and new families to the 2019-2020 school year. I am delighted to serve again as the principal of the William L. Buck School and believe this will be our best year yet! We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways; filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.
Our outstanding, creative and highly qualified staff is dedicated to having all of our children feel connected and part of the William L. Buck family. As our school year progresses, we will work tirelessly to ensure that your child/children feel welcome each day and we will provide an atmosphere that is positive, caring and focused on learning.
The Valley Stream UFSD 24 School Board and district administration provide critical support and leadership to our school. Their service and dedication to our students is constant. We set high academic expectations for all students. Parents: you play an integral role in achieving this goal. I ask that you take time each day to discuss your child’s experiences at school. Your partnership and support are key elements to ensuring that we are able to maximize each student’s educational and personal development. At William L. Buck, our focus on the success of our students is ongoing and intentional.
We extend a year-long invitation to participate in our Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Our PTA enriches our school by providing support and opportunities for our community. Your PTA membership makes our school stronger! We hope that you will access our web pages to obtain the latest information concerning the programs and activities of our school. We will also be highlighting some of our students' and staff achievements throughout the year. Please follow us on Twitter with the handle: @ValleyStreamWLB.
Let’s look forward to an awesome year together!
Mrs. Wolfsdorf and Ms. Sloboda's Kindergarten students at William L. Buck had to find information about their family and culture. Then, they decorated a paper doll in either traditional or modern clothing from their culture. The students shared their projects with one another, and displayed them on their bulletin board for all to see. They really enjoyed sharing about themselves and learning about their classmates.
