REMINDER - Please sign up to help with our Conference Week Teacher Luncheon, snacks, and TGIF Treats!
Bugbee Elementary School

Hi Bugbee Families!  

(Once again, grab a cup of coffee - or maybe tea this time? - before reading our crazy-long email!)

It's hard to believe that we are approaching our second round of teacher conferences this year.  Bugbee Spring conference week is Monday, March 7th-Friday, March 11th.  In our typical Bugbee tradition, we are again organizing snacks, a conference week "international" luncheon (see below for a description!), and a TGIF Treats event for our wonderful Bugbee teachers and staff, and we need your help to make it a success!  You were all so generous with our November luncheon and we would love to show our teachers that same appreciation once again. 


There are several ways to participate:

  1. Provide some snacks/treats to keep the teachers fueled all week while they meet with Every.  Single.  Bugbee.  Family.
  2. Pick an item from the list below to prepare or purchase for the "international" luncheon on Tuesday, March 8th.
  3. Assist with the set up or clean up for the luncheon on Tuesday, March 8th.
  4. Provide a homemade or store-bought dessert item listed below for our TGIF Treats event on Friday, March 11th.

If you are able to contribute, please sign up for one of the suggested items below. 


Item Drop-off Info:

  • SNACKS:  Individually packaged snacks/bars/etc. can be dropped off in the Bugbee office on Monday, March 7th.
    • As many of you know, Bugbee used to celebrate a time-honored tradition called "International Night" where students and families would set up stations around the school celebrating their family's heritage. This extremely popular event became another unfortunate casualty of Covid. The "international" luncheon is our attempt to infuse some of this wonderful tradition back into the school year.  Please consider preparing or purchasing a dish that represents your heritage, culture, or background, or simply a dish from another culture  that your family enjoys eating!
    • Perishable items and food in crock pots can be dropped off in the Bugbee School office between 8:00-8:30am on Tuesday, March 8th.  ***Please reach out to Pam or Stacey if you need to work out an alternate drop-off time.
    • Non-perishable items may be dropped off in the office on, or any time before, March 8th
    • Please be sure to label any serving dishes that you need returned.
    • If your food item requires a serving utensil, it would be awesome if you could please provide that as well (please email one of us if you need us to supply that utensil!). 
    • Finally, please provide your item in a bowl/tray/etc. from which the food can be served (i.e., if we can avoid scrambling for serving pieces last minute, we would appreciate it!)
  • TGIF TREATS: Non-perishable treats can be dropped off any time during the week, but by Friday, March 11th at 9:30am at the latest (please label the items to indicate that they are for Friday).

Thank you for reading this novella, and thanks in advance for signing up to help and keeping our teachers and staff well-fed during conferences!
