Buffalo Grove Parent Organization

  • The Buffalo Grove Parent Association (BGPA) is focused on enhancing the educational experience of all students at Buffalo Grove High School. All BGHS parents and staff are welcome to join the BGPA. Members of the BGPA have access to DirectorySpot, the only electronic student/parent/teacher directory.
    If you haven’t already joined, you can find a copy of the membership form on the BGHS website under parents | parents groups | buffalo grove parent association or at bit.ly/2N9QZ7A.
    Your membership dues and additional donations go to support many activities including mini-grants for student organizations*, scholarships, student and teacher appreciation events, homecoming fireworks and senior day activities. 
    Additionally, you can support the BGPA by purchasing our reasonably priced BGHS spirit wear and shopping Amazon through Amazon Smiles (https://smile.amazon.com/) and selecting the Buffalo Grove Parent Association. We appreciate this additional support during these uncertain times as our fundraising activities have been limited due to the current pandemic.

  • Members will receive meeting reminders and volunteer opportunities from SignUpGenius. Parent opportunities typically include helping with senior activities, coat closet check for dances, assistance with appreciation and teacher conference events, working at BG and/or Frontier Days, and much more.
