Principal’s Message 

Hi Families!

It is such an exciting time right now.  It is walk-a-thon time! We want all families to feel a part of our walk-a-thon and one way to do that is to take a minute out of your day to register your child here.  Once you register, that is all we need for your student’s class to possibly earn a prize!   There are plenty of other class and individual prizes to be earned including the golden sneaker.  

Part of what will make this successful is parent volunteer on the day of the event. Check out the PTA Konstella and consider signing up for a shift. It’s a lot of fun.  Together Everyone Achieves More!    

If you would like to attend the English Learners Advisors Council (ELAC) meeting, it will be virtual tomorrow at 5pm.  Click here to register in advance. 

Quick reminders about pick up and drop off.  First, please do not get out of your car for any reason at the car circle during drop off or pick up.  At drop off, it is stopping up traffic on Hans.  Secondly, the back parking lot is not meant for pick up and drop off.  It is dangerous for our students who walk and bike through that lot.  You should stop on Barbara Avenue.  As a T.E.A.M we want to keep all our Bubb Cubs safe.

Better Together: September

This month, #BetterTogether explores identity and celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month, which are both essential components of fostering inclusive and enriching schools in MVWSD. Recognizing and respecting the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities of students not only promotes a sense of belonging and allyship but also encourages a more comprehensive and meaningful learning experience for all. Hispanic Heritage Month, in particular, provides an opportunity to appreciate the rich tapestry of Hispanic/Latino cultures, their contributions to society, and the stories of Hispanic/Latino students within our own community. Celebrate with us this month! We are #BetterTogetherMVWSD. For more information about Better Together, visit
