Principal's Message

Dear 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:

  • Kindergarten: Vanessa Bui, Katie Stout, Erika Kao, Alexandra Adam
  • Grade 1: Kathy Patterson, Carol Packer, Anna Orlovic, Jean West/Danielle Gorospe, Jennifer Dux
  • Grade 2: David Franklin, Jamie Ewings, Paula Pasquini, Emily Campion
  • K-2 Special Day Class: Jessica Chavez
  • K-2 Science: Laurel Shephard
  • Grade 3: Lydia Ackermann, Barbara Scott/Alice McNally, Tricia Willis, Emily Carpenter
  • Grade 4: Ian Milos, Joanna DuMee, Annie Yuan
  • Grade 5: Shannon Arbildo, Patricia Galazzo, Nastassia Hamor
  • 3-5 Special Day Class: Katie Coyne
  • 3-5 Science: Robert Poling
  • Instructional Coach: Cathy Patterson
  • Resource Specialist: Melody Owens

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! 

Here are some important events for the opening of school:

  • SchoolMint: Please verify your enrollment through SchoolMint.  You should have received an email on August 1st with a link and instructions.

  • Class List Posting and Welcome Back Social, August 17, 3:30-5:00 pm @ Bubb Park:  Many Bubb teachers will be there to meet new friends and say hello to old friends!  If you are unable to attend, class lists will also be posted after the social on the office window.

  • First Day of School!  August 20th, 8:00 am-11:55 am: (Note that this is a minimum day.)  PTA will also host a coffee for parents in front of the office.  Walk your student to their line, give them a hug, and celebrate with fellow parents!

  • Summer Reading Logs due August 31st.  If you can’t find your log, you can simply write the titles of 10 books you read over the summer on a sheet of paper with your full name and grade level.

  • Back to School Night, September 5th, 6:00-8:00 pm: (for parents only) September 5th is also a minimum day for students with dismissal at 11:55.

On the first day of school, please make sure your child has a backpack and a morning snack.  There is no need to bring additional school supplies--teachers have already purchased supplies thanks to your generous donations.  If you would like to donate towards school supplies, please see the front office once school starts.

Please note that we serve hot lunch daily, as well as breakfast during morning recess at full, free, or reduced price.  Students taking the bus must have a bus pass or ticket to ride beginning the first day of school. Meal and bus information and applications can be found on our district website (www.mvwsd.org) or by calling 650-526-3500.

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!

 

In partnership,
Principal Cyndee
