Principal’s Message 

Hi Families!

This is it!  The Walk-a-Thon is this Friday!  I am so excited to be here at Bubb.  In the short time I have been principal, I have seen so many acts of kindness and truly feel the sense of community.  The Walk-a-Thon is one of many great opportunities for all our families to experience the inclusive vibe that Bubb continues to foster.   

I have been in the background listening to all the wonderful things that our PTA has planned.  There will be games, food trucks, activities, and of course the walking.  I hope to see all of you there!

Join us on October 4th and participate in “A Day Without Driving”. Consider walking, biking, or scootering to school that day. Read more information about this below.

Have a wonderful week!

School News 

Student vision and hearing screenings coming up.

Each fall, MVWSD conducts hearing and vision screenings of all students in kindergarten, second-, fifth- and eighth-grade, as California State Law mandates. These screenings will take place at Bubb on October 4th and 5th


Parents will be notified in writing if children fail a screening. Parents who do not want their child screened for either vision and/or hearing should send a letter to their child's school each school year indicating that their child is to be excluded, and vision and/or hearing results will need to be provided from their physician.


If you have any concerns about your child’s vision or hearing please contact your school nurse. Questions about the screenings should be directed to the Health Services office at 650-526-3500 ext. 1050.

Picture Re-take Day is coming! 

Picture Retake day will be Wednesday, October 4, 2023.

Attendance Awareness Month: Attendance Tips

Early learning and success later in life depends on attending school. There are long-term positive outcomes for youth who attend school each day. Creating routines for strong attendance can help youth avoid chronic absenteeism.

Here are some tips to help improve attendance and ensure your child gets the most out of their educational experience:

  • Get a good night’s sleep

  • Prepare for school the night before

  • Establish regular morning routines

  • Have a back-up for drop off and pick up: Make a plan with family, friends, or neighbors

  • Reduce health related absences: wash hands and maintain healthy habits

  • Plan family vacations for school breaks

Volunteer with MVEF!
MVEF needs 1-3 additional volunteers at each school in MVWSD. MVEF school representatives help the families at their school understand what MVEF is and why it exists so that they are inspired to donate and spread the word about the impact of MVEF funding. MVEF also needs volunteers to help with planning our annual Gala and other community events. To learn more, visit:
