Parent Involvement

We always welcome parents that are interested in taking leadership roles at school.  There are several ways to help define school policies and programs by getting more involved in the following school and district level organizations:

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)
School Site Council (SSC)
Mountain View Educational Foundation (MVEF)

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

According to California law, all K-12 public schools with 21 or more English learners must form a functional English Learner Advisory Committee. The ELAC is an elected committee for parents or other community members who want to advocate for English Learners. Its purpose is to advise the principal, school staff, and the School Site Council on programs and services for English Learners.

If you're interested in joining ELAC, please contact Principal Cyndee Nguyen at 650.526.3480, Ext. 1410, or email her at cnguyen@mvwsd.org.

School Site Council (SSC)

Bubb School Site Council is a decision-making, leadership group comprised of the Principal, teachers, classified staff, and parents/community. The SSC plays an important role in the continuous improvement of our students' education by its review, approval, and monitoring of the annual Bubb Site Plan and of categorical monies that fund the plan. Members review and analyze students' performance, ask hard questions, participate in thoughtful discussions, and work on a team with staff and the Principal.

Mountain View Educational Foundation (MVEF)

The Mountain View Educational Foundation is an independent nonprofit run by parents that raises money for our children at our schools. Please join your fellow parents in supporting MVEF. This school year 2015-16, with your help, we will support nearly $700,000 in educational programs including:

Mountain View Educational FoundationIn the elementary schools:

  • A progressive art curriculum for grades K-5, also provided by CSMA, that develops students’ creative and conceptual thinking
  • Music classes for grades K-5, provided by the Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA), including fourth grade recorder, fifth grade band and orchestra
  • Garden-based lessons
  • Hands-on science kits
  • Leadership workshops
  • Environmental education field trips and class programs

In the middle schools:

  • Science lab materials and resources
  • Environmental education field trips
  • Afterschool sports and extended-day electives
  • Capstone environmental education trip to Yosemite

As you can see, MVEF pays programs that benefit every student, at every school, including yours. To support these critical programs, we ask every family to contribute. In our elementary schools the programs are taught during the school day and are an essential part of your children’s education

We ask each family to consider a gift of $500 per student, but every donation counts. If you can't give $500, please donate at a level that is comfortable for you—our goal is 100% participation and gifts at any level are truly appreciated.  Please also consider corporate matching of your donation if your employer provides matching. Learn more or donate online at www.mvef.org.

Please contact Bubb's MVEF Board members and Bubb parents Sandra Wang (smbwang@gmail.com) or Galen Coleman (galencoleman@comcast.net) if you have any questions about the classes your child will receive at Bubb thanks to your support of MVEF or about MVEF.

If you are interested in the programming funded or would like to join MVEF in its fundraising efforts please contact your MVEF Bubb parents or come and attend our monthly meeting, details of the next meeting can be found at mvef.org.
