Principal’s Message 

Hi Families!

Can you believe how fast time has flown by? For me, as a new principal, it has been so heartwarming to see all the events that the Bubb community has going on with the help of our PTA so everyone has a way to be a part of Bubb.  

Before the year even started, we had kinder playdates.  Once the year got started, we had a popsicle social, Reading Under the Stars at the Book Fair, Monster Mash and of course our wonderful Walk-a-Thon.  Coming up we have Math Night on February 9th and Diversity night on March 29th.  We always look forward to having families participate at Bubb.  

Thanks to all parents who are helping provide snacks for the staff.  The variety has been wonderful and they really enjoy them!  

We also have the PTA silent auction items available for you to look at.  Please find the event or party that interests your student/family and put in a bid starting on February 2nd and ending on February 4th.  This is a great opportunity to raise money for Bubb PTA and Bubb because we are a T.E.A.M. 

Registration for next year began last week and runs through February 9th.  If you need any assistance with the process, please contact [email protected].  

The LCAP survey has been sent to your email.  Please complete it by February 16th. 

We are continuing to promote Kindness at Bubb.  The week of February 12th-16th is Random Act of Kindness week.  Bubb is planning activities to continue showing that we are using the BUBB way by being upstanders.  

I am excited and proud to be a part of this community!
