A Message From Your Parent Coordinator

 Señor Josh, Parent Coordinator

Señor Josh, Parent Coordinator

Dear BUGS Families, 

Welcome to our school! We are so pleased that you are joining our family of learners.  I will assist you in building a partnership in support of your child.  At BUGS, there are many on our team – administrators, teachers, and support staff – who are all committed to ensuring your child’s academic success.  We look forward to working together to provide a wonderful year of learning and academic growth for your child.

One of the keys to your child’s success will be your ongoing involvement in our school community. Throughout the school year, you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s teachers, participate in our open classrooms, become involved in the PTA, attend informative workshops and many events which we host to celebrate our students’ success.  

As parent coordinator, I am available to provide information, answer questions, help you access resources for your child, and resolve problems that your child may encounter in school. My goals are to empower, motivate and assist families; to create programs and events that adhere to our curriculum and lend to an overall memorable experience. 

Throughout the course of the year, I will keep in contact with you by sending a bi-weekly family email (archive available below), updating 'For Families' section on our website, sharing newsletters, calendars, flyers, letters about events, and programs available to you. Also, look out for a variety of free workshops offered to families during the school year.

I look forward to meeting all of you this upcoming school year, but I am certainly available to meet or speak with you anytime. You may contact me through any of the methods listed below. 

Thank you for your commitment to your child’s future success and I look forward to a
great school year!
 

Sincerely,

Joshua Altamirano, aka Señor Josh

Parent Coordinator

At BUGS, we use TeacherEase as our student information system. Through the parent portal, families can:

  • View student grades & upcoming assignments

  • View the school calendar

  • Email teachers and staff

  • Pay outstanding fees

  • View a student's locker combination


KONSTELLA

To help keep everyone informed in the most effective way possible, the BUGS Parent Coordinator and PTA are now utilizing a new communications system called Konstella. This system will allow the PTA and the school administration to reach the school community digitally and on the go. The system has many features which we hope that you will take advantage of such as committee signups, parent groups, class parent center, calendaring, and announcements.
