Support Bugbee Teachers! Conference Week Teacher Luncheon, Snacks, and TGIF Treats
Bugbee Elementary School

Hi Bugbee Families!  


With the fall foliage at its peak, we find ourselves approaching the first round of teacher conferences this year.  Bugbee Fall Conference Week is Monday, November 13th-Friday, November 17th.  In our typical Bugbee tradition, we are organizing snacks, a luncheon, and a "TGIF Treats" event for our wonderful Bugbee teachers and staff, and we need your help to make it a success!  We are also leaning into the "Bugbee Explorers" theme this year (you know we love a good theme, and Mrs. Brouse has delivered once again!).  We are starting the year by exploring our local region and the season, creating a menu that will feature some New England and fall favorites, including hearty chowders, warm apple cider, and seasonal-themed desserts.


There are several ways to participate:

  1. Provide some snacks/treats to keep the teachers sustained throughout the week.
  2. Pick an item from the list below to prepare or purchase for the luncheon on Tuesday, November 14th.
  3. Assist with the set up or clean up for the luncheon on Tuesday, November 14th.
  4. Provide a homemade or store-bought dessert item listed below for our TGIF Treats event on Friday, November 17th.

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, November 13th.
    • Perishable items can be dropped off in the Bugbee School office between 8:00-8:30am on Tuesday, November 14th.  ***Please reach out to Pam, Stacey, Angie, or Erin 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, November 14th at 8:30am
    • 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, November 17th at 8:30am at the latest (please label the items to indicate that they are for Friday).

You've made it to the end of the email!  Thanks in advance for signing up to help and keeping our teachers and staff well-fed during conferences!
