Volunteers Needed: Principal on the Playground and Principal's Coffee Hosts
Bugbee Elementary School
2 days before

Good morning!


Your help in hosting either a Principal on the Playground or Principal's Coffee this year would be greatly appreciated.  


Approximately once a month, Principal Brouse joins students and families:


  • on the playground after pick-up for casual conversation and snacks from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., or
  • hosts parents for coffee after drop-off from 8:40 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.    

This year, we are asking families to take turns hosting these fun events.  


  • Hosting Principal on the Playground involves providing snacks and drinks (for approx. 120); arriving around 2:45 p.m. to post signs, retrieve paper goods from PTO closet, and set up snacks and drinks; and greeting families, while helping Principal Brouse to serve snacks.
    • Dates:
      • August 30th, October 4th, November 1st, January 3rd, April 3rd, May 1st, June 5th.
  • Hosting Principal’s Coffee involves bringing coffee and light refreshments (for approx. 20); arriving around 8:15 a.m. to post signs, retrieve paper goods from PTO closet, and set up coffee and refreshments; and greeting parents. 
    • Dates:
      • September 20th, December 6th, February 7th, March 6th

The snacks and refreshments can be as simple or elaborate as you want.  Some examples from the last few years include:  quartered bagels and cream cheese and cut fruit; hot chocolate and cookies; popsicles; tortilla chips and dip; brownies; watermelon and cookies; and muffins.


These events are weather dependent, so a bit of flexibility is required.


Thanks so much!
