The Warwick Weekly
Respect - Responsibility - Cooperation - Excellence
Thursday, October 15th
Coming Home Today . . . . . .
Beginning October 26, 2015, in just a few short weeks, kindergarten registration for the 2016-2017 school year will be open. Information posted on the CBSD website will walk you through the registration process. Please encourage all your friends and Warwick neighbors to take advantage of trying to register as early as possible, as registration date directly impacts AM / PM selection, and numbers have a direct impact on class size and personnel decisions.
Thank you for spreading the word!

"Falling" For Warwick!
Leaves and mums of red, brown, and orange, hay bales, a pumpkin patch with twining vines, and scarecrows, lots and lots of scarecrows; this is what awaits the Warwick Elementary School Community this week in the courtyard. Students, staff, and parents worked together to turn the Warwick courtyard into a place to celebrate their sense of cooperation through all things Fall. The idea began with one of our custodians, Mr. Barry Graber. What started out as a simple idea to spruce up our courtyard with a real pumpkin patch turned in to a tremendously fun school-wide event including scarecrow construction, now in it's 5th year.
Stands were created for each classroom by Mr. Graber. Teachers then worked with students to choose a theme and begin construction. While some grade levels chose a theme, like 3rd grade who chose Super Heroes, others went with something a bit more unusual - like a Chipotle Burrito! In all, there are 27 scarecrows welcoming visitors to the school this week.
As a school community, we work toward common goals all of the time, although we don’t always have concrete ways we can show our successes to our students. We can all look at test scores and understand how our efforts are making a difference, but this is an opportunity to show students what we can do when we all work hard toward a common goal in a way they can see, touch, understand, and be excited about. We have an incredibly dedicated school community here, and it’s because of our hard work, dedication, and creativity that this event was fun, memorable, and meaningful.
Thank you, everyone, for making this such a successful tradition at Warwick!

Halloween Information - Parade at 2:15
On behalf of the students, teachers, and staff, I am writing to invite you to this year’s school-wide Halloween Parade. Parents, please exercise caution when sending in a costume for our parade. Students need to be able to have a normal field of vision and they should be able to walk freely (costumes should not be too long or bulky).
We also ask that the design of the costume be on the less ghoulish or frightening side and we ask that items that are considered play weapons remain at home. Please keep in mind that we have children as young as five years old in our building. Children with costumes not meeting these guidelines will not be permitted to wear them during the parade.
Please also note: The main parking lot area will be restricted from parking as this is where we will be parading in a backtracking loop design so every student can see every other student. Parents, please stand around the perimeter of the parking lot, or on the grass islands.. Additional parking will be available at St. Cyril’s.
Only designated homeroom parents will be permitted in to the building after the parade. Please check-in through the front office. We look forward to seeing you if you're able to join us and thank you for your support in providing a fun, safe, Halloween experience for all of our students.

Coming Soon! Book Fair!
Dear Parents and Families:
Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here’s what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
- Set the example. Let children see you read.
- Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
- Support our school’s Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.
Book Fair dates: Monday 11/2-Friday 11/6
Shopping hours: all day during school hours
Special activities: Family Night, Wednesday, November 4th, 6-8pm
If you are unable to attend the Fair in person, we invite you to visit our online Book Fair at scholastic.com/fair. Our online Fair is available from 10/28 to 11/10
Remember, all purchases benefit our school.
As part of the Central Bucks School District Elementary Health Curriculum, a unit entitled Tobacco, Alcohol, and Other Drugs is taught to pupils in grades K-6. The primary purpose of this program is to educate the children on the negative impacts of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs, as well as the impact of negative peer influences.
Your child’s teacher will teach researched-based lessons developed by Central Bucks teachers and certified school nurses using HealthTeacher.com as a resource. In order to deliver a consistent, cohesive curriculum, all Central Bucks teachers will deliver this curriculum during Red Ribbon Week, October 19-30. Course level goals and objectives can be found on the school district’s website: http://www.cbsd.org/Page/1497
A PDF version of the PowerPoints (instructional curriculum) used in the classrooms can be viewed at http://www.cbsd.org/Page/24978 . Should parents wish to have their child excused from the program, they should send a written request to the attention of the principal.
As always, please do not hesitate to call with any questions.
Congratulations to our September Boomerang Winners!
