Earth Day Celebration
In honor of Earth Day, and as a result of the student council vote, each grade wore one color. On Tuesday morning we invited all grades outside for a group picture where we formed a rainbow. You can see the view from the roof was pretty cool!
Reading Olympics Update
Warwick was the proud host of the 21st annual Reading Olympics. We opened our doors to 41 teams from Central Bucks, Centennial, and two private schools. The Bucks County Reading Olympics inspires kids to become lifelong readers. It motivates students in Bucks County to read and discuss books with their peers. The purpose of this event is to encourage children to read more than they currently do, to read a greater variety of books, and to enjoy the excitement of reading and talking about books. The team format encourages students to share the challenge of reading the selection of books with their teammates and working together to answer questions on the night of the competition.
We heard many positive comments from parents, teachers, and librarians. The kids had a great time, and many of them are talking about doing it next year. The list of books for next year have been posted on the library website page. http://www.cbsd.org/Page/10161
A special thank you to our parent and teacher volunteers: Mr. & Mrs. Gamble, Mrs. Zhang, Mrs. Lowe, Mrs. Ballentine, Mrs. Duffner, Mrs. Wang, Mrs. Curran, Mrs. Powell, Mrs. Jacobs, Miss Emery, Mrs. Ela, Mrs. Holtzman, Mrs. King, Mrs. Finelli, Mrs. Egan, Mrs. Sleicher, Mrs. Willett, and Mrs. Kralik. The night ran smoothly thanks to their time and help with the event.
