May 10, 2023 - English


Dear Families,


This week, we are celebrating our wonderful teachers and staff who make Bubb such an amazing place to learn and grow.  Every staff member at Bubb--from teachers and instructional assistants to office managers, library technicians, food service workers, and maintenance staff--works tirelessly to ensure that students feel safe, valued, and known at school so that they can grow and learn at high levels.  On behalf of the Bubb staff, thank you for your kind words and tokens of appreciation this week--they have really filled our buckets!


Next week, our Bubb staff would like to celebrate you!  Please join us at our Volunteer Tea on Wednesday, May 17th @ 3:00 pm in the MUR. Childcare will be available.  Volunteers will have a chance to mingle with each other and with staff over some treats and iced tea.  If you are able to attend, please RSVP to [email protected] so we can know how many treats to prepare! 


Finally, Thursday night, we are celebrating our multilingual students who have met the requirements to be reclassified as Fluent English Proficient at our district’s annual Reclassification Celebration, 5/11 @ 5-7pm in the Crittenden Middle School quad.  These students, who have home languages other than English, have demonstrated English language proficiency on a standardized assessment and reading proficiency on a district or state assessment.  We are so proud of them!


We still need parent members for our School Site Council next year!  It is a great way to learn more about the school and get to know the school leadership.  Please email me if you are interested!


In partnership,

Principal Cyndee

Changes for Volunteers

Badge process for regular volunteers ( explains the designations of “regular” and “infrequent”)

  • The regular volunteer badge process for the next school year starts on May 12.

  • All regular volunteers planning to continue will have to complete the badge process for next year, whether they are new or renewing. This year’s badges won’t work next year, and schools will be collecting old badges at the end of the school year. Note: Renewing volunteers likely will not need new fingerprint checks or TB testing.

  • No badges will be issued for 2023-24 until August at the first in-person required annual mandated reporter and abuse training (in compliance with AB 506).


How to Apply to be a Regular Volunteer Next Year. Start collecting documents now to avoid delays at the beginning of the school year. For all of the details and documentation required, please see Please do not apply for next year's badge before May 12.

  • If you have never had a badge before, please read the finger printing fact sheet and then ask your principal for the fingerprint request form after May 12. After you complete the form, your school will give you the link to the Raptor volunteer application.

  • If you want to renew your volunteer badge, after May 12 ask your school for the link to the Raptor volunteer application. TB tests are good for 3 years, although you will still need to upload proof in the online application. Fingerprint checks are good for a few years. In the online application, you will provide the last school year you completed a check or the ATI number.

Training: All regular volunteers will be required to complete the annual mandated reporter and abuse training in compliance with AB 506 before receiving a badge. After applying, applicants will receive a confirmation email with the link to sign up for the next training session. At the training session, those with completed applications will receive their badges.


Thank you for adhering to this process which is vitally important to protect our students' safety and to ensure MVWSD complies with state law.
