Meet the Elementary Principal

I am Todd Kulawiak, proud to be the elementary principal at Buckley Community Schools.  Prior to being the principal at Buckley Community Schools I was the Dean of Students and Athletic Director at my alma mater, Benzie Central HS, for the previous 11 years.  I am fortunate to have a career where I don’t feel I go to work but to school each day!!

I have been married to my wonderful and patient wife, Erin, for past 14 years.  We have 5 outgoing children: Carson, 13; Jackson 11; Landon 9; Mikayla 7; and Jamison 5.  Carson, Jackson, Landon, Mikayla, and Jamison all attend Buckley Community Schools.

I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my children participate in extracurricular activities, hunting, and fishing.  As my children get older I enjoy watching them learn and try new things.  We enjoy camping during the summer especially at Aloha State Park in Cheboygan and  Northern Exposure in Mesick.

I graduated with a BA from Alma College in 1992 with majors in Physiology and Biology and a Secondary Teaching Certification.  I received my MA from Central Michigan University in School Principalship in 2ooo.

And as always—GOOOOO BEARS!!!!

Meet the High School Principal

My name is Kile Charnes and I’m in my first year as Buckley Community School’s Dean of Students and Athletic Director. I grew up in Weidman, MI, and attended Chippewa Hills High School.  I attended Saginaw Valley State University on an athletic scholarship where I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and Physical and Health Education before moving to Traverse City in 2007.

I served as Athletic Director at Traverse City College Preparatory Academy while teaching physical and health education for six years.  I coached varsity basketball, cross country, and volleyball.   During my time there I received my Master’s Degree in School Principalship from Central Michigan University in 2012.

In August 2013, I joined the Bear family. I have greatly enjoyed having the opportunity to work with our students and getting to know the staff and community.   We have great students and a caring staff here at Buckley Community Schools.  Our athletic and academic programs are improving every day, I’m excited for the future and happy I can be a part of it.

I’ve been married for six years to my wife Samantha.  We have two children, Eleanor and Miles. We enjoy spending time together swimming, camping, playing and traveling.  It’s been an incredible experience to watch them grow and mature.

I spend as much of my free time with my family as possible. In my spare time I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, and anything outdoors
