girl with a bookDear Bubb Families,

Welcome back to all our amazing returning families and a special welcome to new families! I hope you had a wonderful summer and are as excited as I am to start a new school year!

We have some new additions to our Bubb family! Please join me in welcoming Alexandra Adam, Jennifer Dux, Emily Carpenter, Patricia Galazzo, and Jessica Chavez. We are excited to have them join us! For the 2018-19 school year, our teaching roster will be:

2018-19 will be an exciting school year! We continue to be committed to helping our students develop a growth mindset through the language that we use, the feedback that we give, and the classroom communities that we create. We have a robust science program that allows us to implement Second Chance Teaching, a dedicated intervention and enrichment block in every grade level, where every student has small group time with their teacher to either have a second chance to learn grade level skills or an opportunity to delve deeper into concepts. In addition to providing students the academic support and opportunities that they deserve, this dedicated time reinforces the message that we all have areas for growth. We are also so fortunate to continue weekly art and music lessons for all students, thanks to your generous donations through the Mountain View Educational Foundation and enriching field trips and activities through our Bubb PTA.

The Bubb campus is new and improved! We have a beautiful new MUR, modernized classrooms with updated technology, and an expanded Kindergarten classroom. The old MUR conversion to library and special education classrooms will continue through December, so plan for a few construction-related inconveniences for a few more months, but they will all be worth it!

I can't wait to see familiar faces, meet some new ones, and hear about everyone's summer adventures! Here’s to another year of growing, learning, and having fun!
