February 15, 2023 - English


Dear Families,


We are nearing the end of the 2nd trimester!  Please remember that Friday is a minimum day, with student dismissal at 11:55.  Students are completing their end of trimester assessments and teachers are working on report cards.  These 2nd trimester report cards will be sent home electronically on March 10th.


We will celebrate the beginning of the 3rd trimester on Monday, 2/27 with a Buddy Day!  We do need a few parent volunteers to make the day a success.  Please see the Konstella announcement to sign up.


Thursday night is the last of our 5-part Brain Based Parenting Workshops from Soul Shoppe.  These workshops have been amazing and have helped me parent with more intention.  When you register, you will receive a link to view recordings of the past workshops in the series. 


Finally, please complete the district Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) survey that was sent to your inbox.  We use that data to measure our progress towards meeting School Site goals, including Bubb’s welcoming and supportive climate for families and students.  Data is also used to inform district plans and goals. 


I hope that you and your families are able to recharge and reconnect over the Winter Break next week.


In partnership,

Principal Cyndee

All unclaimed items are donated to charity at the end of the trimester, which is this Friday, 2/17.

Bubb’s Parent University Extension Series

As part of our plan to support our students both inside and outside of the classroom, we will be holding a series of Parent University Extension courses to supplement MVWSD’s existing Parent University program.  

Parent University: Brain Based Parenting Workshops by Soul Shoppe  2/16 @ 6:00-7:00 pm Registration Link

In this workshop series, participants will understand developmental brain-based strategies to support you and your child.  Each month in this series, you’ll walk away with easy to implement tools for a more peaceful home environment.  


Don’t forget to give your student the free COVID test on Feb. 26

MVWSD is providing at-home COVID-19 testing kits for free to families and staff members so that you may test before returning to campus after the winter break. Please administer the test to your student on Sunday, Feb. 26  before returning to school on Monday, Feb. 27. Please see this letter for what to do after testing. Thank you for participating in these measures to help ensure all of our students and staff stay healthy. 

We want to hear from you! LCAP survey responses due Feb. 17

Have you clicked on the link in your inbox to complete the LCAP survey? We need to hear from every family in the district as part of the annual process of updating the LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan). Your input will guide the update of our District plan for the 2023-24 school year.  Your responses are confidential. More information found here: https://www.mvwsd.org/LCAP

February Better Together InfographicIn February, we honor Black History Month. As educators and parents, we can help our young people imagine a world where they are active participants in the dismantling of racist and oppressive forces. We can help them imagine a future where we are all #BetterTogether. Please see the attached flyers or visit http://mvwsd.org/bettertogetherMVWSD.

Early Bird pricing for MVEF Gala tickets is available until 3/12/2023 

Buy tickets, donate items, and sponsor the Gala today by visiting the MVEF Gala page: https://www.mvef.org/2023gala


With approximately 150 in-person attendees and a goal to raise $100k, the MVEF Gala is an opportunity for residents, district parents, business leaders and community members to come together in support of our local public schools. Last year MVEF successfully took the bold step to extend its funding beyond art, music, science, and sports to include adding opportunities for differentiation in the classroom by reducing class sizes in ELA. This year we hope to raise a total of $1.2MM through the MVWSD community’s enthusiastic participation, allowing us to continue funding the new teaching positions, the existing MVEF-funded programs, and consider funding additional programs in the future.

Health and Wellness Parenting Tip: Change upsetting thoughts

Everyone has upsetting thoughts from time to time, which can make us feel angry, sad, or frustrated. This is normal! It is often our emotions that drive these upsetting thoughts, not the facts of the situation. By catching our upsetting thoughts, checking the facts, and changing our thoughts based on those facts, we can start to have more helpful thoughts and improve our mood.  

Watch this video and learn more about how to change upsetting thoughts to be more helpful.

To change your upsetting thoughts: 

  1. Catch it. When you feel upset, pause and ask yourself, “What words or phrases are running through my mind right now?”

  2. Check it. Consider whether the thought you are having is helpful or not. 

  3. Change it. If you are having an unhelpful thought, consider other ways of looking at the situation. Reframe your thought to one that is more helpful.

Catching, checking, and changing your thoughts takes practice. By noticing your unhelpful thoughts and reframing them based on facts, you can improve your mood.
