Reminder: Return Student Waiver

If your child is planning to walk in the Bubb Walkathon or attend any PTA event this year, we need a waiver on file for your student. The waiver must be signed by a parent or guardian. Please return the signed waiver to your child's classroom or to the school office by Friday, September 28. Download the waiver now.

Eat Well, Raise Money for Bubb

This fall, 5% of every grocery order you place on Good Eggs will go back to Bubb School! Good Eggs is an online grocery market in the Bay Area delivering fresh groceries. Shop today for same-day delivery straight to your doorstep — no subscription required. To participate, enter the code BUBB2018 when you visit http://schools.goodeggs.com.

Bring in Your Box Tops!

It's time to start clipping those Box Tops for Education labels! It’s an easy way to raise money for Bubb. You can clip out the labels (just make sure the expiration date and full product code are visible) and bring your Box Tops to the collection envelope in front of your child's classroom. The classroom that collects the most Box Tops by Friday, October 26 wins a Popsicle Party! You can also download the Box Top for Education app on your smartphone and scan the receipt on which the item(s) appears. The schoolʻs reward will go directly to the Bubb school account. Find out more about the app now.

WATSA is Just Weeks Away!

Collect pledges—$50,000 goal for pledges! Students can collect pledges through Walkstarter at bubb.walkstarter.org or collect cash and check pledges using the pledge form that was sent home last Friday (extra copies in the school office). On Walkstarter, students can create an avatar, set a goal, and share their goal with friends and family. Also, all pledges can be doubled with a corporate match!

Sign up to help! Our Walkathon & Silent Auction (WATSA) is set for Friday, October 5th after school dismissal until 7pm. It's our biggest fundraiser of the year and we need EVERYONE'S help to make it a success. In Konstella, click on “More” in the top menu and then “Sign-ups” to see the WATSA Sign-Up page. Or visit the sign up page directly. Ming will be at the Blue Canopy every morning if you have questions or donated items to drop-off.

NEW activities at WATSA this year! Did you know that this is the 30th anniversary of WATSA? To celebrate, we’ll have exciting new activities at the walkathon, including a Photo Booth and the chance to sing LIVE with the Bubb Rock Band! Don’t forget classic favorites like Lucky Lollipops, our Wine Cellar in the silent auction, and great food offerings. Look for a special preview of Auction items in this week’s Friday Folders!

Graham Student Volunteers Needed at WATSA Do you have a son or daughter at Graham who would like to volunteer for WATSA? He or she can sign up online (using his or her own name) to earn Block G points! Volunteers during the actual walkathon will need to sign an emergency form/code of conduct and bring it to the event. Graham students can sign-up now.

Graham Parent Volunteers Also Needed for WATSA If you have a student at Graham, you can also sign up online to help. (The parent slots are at the bottom of the sign-up sheet.) We need help keeping track of Graham student volunteers during the event, and it helps to know who some of them are!
