WATSA 2017 - October 6
Bubb's Biggest Day!

Your whole family is invited! Join the entire Bubb community right after school for our most vital fundraiser and fun event of the year. Sign up on Konstella to volunteer, collect donations on Walkstarter or on your green pledge sheet, and purchase items and experiences from the Silent Auction catalog.

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

It was so wonderful to see everyone at the Walkathon last week!  Thank you to all the families for participating, helping with set up and clean up, and for collecting donations.  Our entire community had a great time, and students are grateful for the enrichment opportunities that the WATSA fundraising provides, such as lunchtime clubs, after school enrichment for grades 3-5, family events, field trips, assemblies, and science festivals.  Special thank you to WATSA co-chairs Cindy Chow, Ed Stedman, and Ming Luke (i.e. Captain Cub) for organizing such a fantastic event! 

It has also been fantastic to see families during parent-teacher conferences.  Thank you for collaborating with us to best support your students. If you haven't set up a conference time yet, please contact your child's teacher!

As part of our school improvement plan, we have a Problem of the Month program to help us develop students who collaborate, persevere, and think critically as they problem solve.  Last month’s problem was called “The Wheel Shop” and had several levels so that all of our students could work on a part of the problem that was appropriate to their learning development.  Students begin at Level A and work through the problems, with the understanding that the process of finding and understanding a solution outweighs the benefits of having a correct answer.  Trials, errors, and retries are key attributes of good problem solvers.  We support students in persevering by asking questions such as:What have you tried?  Why do you think it didn’t work?  Have you tried to make the problem simpler?  What do you need to know to be able to solve the problem?  What tools can you use?  We avoid asking leading questions (i.e. Have you tried this? What about this strategy?) or doing the problem for the students, as that actually hurts the problem-solving process and sends the hidden message that students can’t solve problems by themselves.  All students have an opportunity to engage in the Problem of the Month in their classrooms.  Here is a link to "The Wheel Shop" problem--many families enjoy working on the previous month's problem as a family.  It is also a great opportunity for children to see their parent's persevering and problem solving on the higher level problems!  Towards the end of each month, we will continue to publish the month’s problem in the Bubb Bulletin.  We look forward to a partnership with you around mathematical problem solving!

Finally, we have some exciting Principal's Coffees coming up!  On 10/20, we will be reviewing our latest CAASPP (state standardized test) data and sharing resources for parents to support with math at home.  On 11/3, we will have Imagineerz here to provide a workshop titled, "Building an i-can Mindset in kids."  The workshop fits well with Bubb's growth mindset initiative.  Hope to see you there!

Have a wonderful week!

In partnership,

Principal Cyndee

Walk to School Day

Thursday October 19

Earn a chance to win a bike and helmet while avoiding the drop off traffic jam!  Every student who walks, bikes, carpools, or rides the bus to school on Thursday morning will receive a raffle ticket.

Student Supplies

Rather than ask families to provide a long list of supplies for each of their children, the Bubb staff would prefer to purchase all the supplies that they will need for the year. This ensures that everyone is equally equipped and prepared, and parents save time and money! In order to make this possible, we ask that families contribute a $40 donation for each child.

Please return the School Supply Form along with payment (cash or check made out to “Bubb PTA”) to the school office or your child’s teacher as soon as possible.

Join the PTA!

Studies show that kids whose parents get involved with their education do better in school. So we invite all Bubb parents to get involved in two ways:

  1. Join the PTA
  2. Volunteer at school

We welcome your ideas and look forward to seeing you at our next general PTA meeting<.
