Our Project Fit equipment on Warwick's recess yard will be caution taped off by the district for safety reasons over the weekend. A recent inspection was completed by the district and the equipment has been deemed unsafe. It is unable to be repaired. This equipment will be removed within the next few weeks. We have purchased more recess balls and other recess materials to make sure students have other things to do at recess. Thank you for your support in keeping our students safe on the recess yard.
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

Sparks - February
As part of the State mandate for career education, all Pennsylvania students are to receive information on the various pathways available to them to pursue their interests including post-secondary education, the world of work or the military. As one part of this we have developed a long-standing relationship with the local Career Technical Center, Middle Bucks Institute of Technology.
At the high school level, our students can spend half of their school day at MBIT in classrooms and program laboratories receiving specific training in areas such as horticulture or electronics. While in the middle school grades, students attend presentations about the many programs which can lead to visits or even shadowing a current student in programs such as commercial art or dental occupations. Summer school programs are also conducted in many areas of interest including Drone Discovery and Pastry Art.
Over the last few years, we have also shared information with our elementary students through in-person tours (when permitted) and most recently real-time virtual panels and visits given by the current MBIT students to our sixth-grade classes. These tours are scheduled again for this May.
Take a tour yourself and find out more about the many opportunities available to the Central Bucks students.
