Principal’s Message 

Hello Bubb Families,


As you have heard, Principal Kobata is taking a leave of absence for the remainder of the year to care for her family. She wanted me to pass along that she really appreciates your support and well wishes.


For the remainder of the year, I will be around to support Bubb. It was so bucket filling greeting kids this morning--what amazing and kind kids you have all raised! I've missed them so much!


Thank you in advance for your flexibility as we work on closing out the year. All major events (promotion, spring concerts, grade level field trips, etc.) will continue as planned; however, some individual or small group meetings (such as school site council) may need to be rescheduled, as I still also have my full responsibilities as Director of Early Literacy. 


Speaking of... We need some parent members to join next year's School Site Council! It is a great way to learn more about how schools operate and have input into important decisions that affect Bubb's budget and programming. Please reach out if you have any questions, or self nominate by filling out this form by May 10th.


Finally, Bubb teachers and staff are awesome! We celebrate their amazing work everyday, but especially this week. As bell hooks wrote, "The classroom remains the most radical space of possibility in the academy." Teachers and staff do incredible work everyday to ensure that every student has access and opportunity. They are amazing!


Have a great week!

Better Together: May

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, a time dedicated to recognizing the rich history, cultural diversity, and significant contributions of the Asian American Pacific Islander community to our society. It's an opportunity to celebrate the many achievements and the vibrant traditions that AAPI individuals bring to the fabric of our communities. As we honor this important month, it's also an excellent moment to reflect on the #BetterTogether theme of recognizing our own self-worth. Each of us, regardless of background, has unique strengths and an intrinsic value that contributes positively to our communities and the world at large. Celebrating AAPI Heritage Month reminds us to appreciate not only the diversity around us but also the value within ourselves, fostering a deeper understanding and respect for all.
