We want to be your buddy! If you are an incoming family to Kindergarten or older children, please reach out. Bullock Buddies connects new Bullock families with more experienced ones- we offer answers to questions, set up playdates, and are here to support you in small or bigger ways. If you are a new CHB family, please complete this form and we will be in touch soon!
And, we need older, wiser CHB families! If you are a family who wishes to be a buddy to new families, please contact Rachel (mom to Cora, 2nd grade) by signing up via the same form as for new families.
In particular, we need rising 1st-grade families to support our new Kindergarteners.
REMOTE LEARNING COMMITTEE:
Not surprisingly, we need to address remote learning, and all that goes with it at this critical time. Please input your contact details via this form if you are interested in participating in this committee. We are looking for families and teachers who are committed to the ongoing discussion, advocacy, and action around remote learning and support. We know that this is a topic important to all. Please join this committee only if you have time to devote to active discussion and action. This committee will communicate regularly with the larger school community, so everyone will have information on what is being discussed. However, again, we are looking for committee members ready to commit to greater participation.
We need to keep the momentum going and prioritize our work on equity, anti-racism, and inclusion at CHB. Please input your contact details via this form if you are interested in participating in this committee. which will be charged with holding all at CHB and the PTA accountable for ensuring an antiracist perspective in our work and everyday actions. We are looking for committee members, co-chairs, and liaisons to the PTA Council’s Committee on Equity, Anti-Racism, and the Opportunity Gap. This committee will also be tasked with thinking about intersections between equity and various other PTA committees (including but not limited to the Remote Learning Committee).
Our Yubbler site is LIVE. Yubbler is a supplies program that offers brand name products, customized ordering, teacher-approved supply lists, and most of all CHB gets half the profits! We’ve added items that kids can use in the classroom and at home including corkboard, headphones, outlet protectors, and masks. These are just some of the reasons we love using Yubbler. Again, here is the link for easy ordering. You can access our information in English and Spanish.
