We are joining with the West Hartford community to honor kids who wear PJs all day, the patients at CCMC, by wearing our PJs on Friday! Donations are optional but welcome on Friday, December 9th, to support children battling life-threatening diseases at CCMC. All members of our community- students, teachers, parents too!- are encouraged to wear their pajamas in support of these brave kids. Additional information regarding this event can be found here. Thank you for your support of our special events at Bugbee. Coming together as a community in these ways reminds us and our children how important it is to celebrate and champion for one another.

Season's greetings, Bugbee families!   The student council is proud to announce our first project, "Toys for Kids", a holiday toy drive to benefit the children's hospital!   Now through Friday, December 9th, we will be collecting new, unwrapped toys to bring smiles to children who may need a little extra cheer this holiday season. Look for a box in the lobby to drop off your kind donations.   We are also happy to do the shopping for you if you prefer -  we will also be taking up a monetary collection in the office.   In this time of giving we want to do all we can to spread joy to others, so please consider helping us out.   Thanks in advance for your generosity and support!
