Bucks Multimedia Students Win BIG at Greenfield Youth Film Festival
Greenfield Youth Film Festival is a forum for young filmmakers from the metropolitan Philadelphia region to collaborate, create and showcase their work while expressing their creativity through film. It includes a full day academic workshop taught by university professors, high school teachers, and professionals in the film industry to provide the students with skills and relevant film-based education in a hands-on environment. The year culminates with an academy-style awards night when students are highlighted and recognized publicly for their expression and effort, and given prizes in the form of cash, trophies (known as "Greenies"), experiences, and other film-related gifts.

CB South's Project Beautiful
Elena DiPrinzio started a club at CB South as part of her Girl Scouts Gold Award project. The club collected prom dresses throughout the year. They also hosted several opportunities for students to purchase the dresses at a low cost. The most expensive dress sold for only $20. Throughout the process, Elena's club raised $595.00 which was then donated to the Doylestown Area FISH Organization. This organization provides emergency charity services for residents of Bucks County.

College Panel Discussion: Navigating College Admissions
Students can find the recording and presentation slides from the April 20th Admissions Panel on CANVAS under Announcements
Panelists from a variety of colleges and universities will share the stage and answer frequently asked questions that have been collected over the years from students and parents. Questions will be topically based and relevant to admission practices, testing policies, and job placement statistics, etc. This is a collaborative event presented by our Student Services department for Junior Families across the district.
The Junior College Planning Presentation from March 23rd
The Junior College Planning Presentation from March 23rd is posted on our Student Services website. The PowerPoint and full set of notes is on the far right side of the page under "College Planning Modules"…"Class of 2024- March Presentation". All college-bound juniors and their families should review the notes from this presentation as it will help guide you through what tasks should be completed NOW and throughout the spring and summer ahead.
Post-secondary planning for Juniors
As summer approaches, college-bound Juniors should have a general idea of which colleges they are considering, and what majors they are leaning towards. Ideally, students will come into Senior year with a short list of schools they plan to apply to. If your student would like help planning for college or another pathway, please encourage them to see their School Counselor.
This is a helpful resource for college data: https://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/

Scholarships in Naviance (Seniors)
As college application season winds down, SENIORS will notice that scholarship season picks up! Aside from the various scholarship databases students can use to find scholarship opportunities, we strongly recommend that seniors visit the Scholarship List in Naviance every week for newly added scholarships. Many of the posts are LOCAL scholarships, meaning the scholarship organizations are exclusively looking for candidates from our school, district, or region. This list will begin to grow weekly after the new year!
Program Planning for the 2023-2024 School Year
- The deadline to make changes to course requests for the 2023-24 school year passed on March 31st.
- The only changes that can be made moving forward are for pre-requisite deficiencies and teacher approved level changes, per the district’s course change policy in the Program of Studies.
- College-bound juniors are encouraged to research college requirements and preferences and speak with their counselor PRIOR TO THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR if there are any concerns with their course requests as schedules will not be changed in the summer or next school year.
School Counseling Changes
As a reminder, beginning in the 2023-2024 school year, school counselors at all three Central Bucks high schools will be assigned to students according to last name, rather than by grade level (house). Additional information about counselor assignment will be shared in early August.
This change will result in several benefits for students and families.
- Working with all students in the household at our school will enable counselors to build meaningful relationships with families.
- Engaging with students across grade levels in a given school year will help counselors connect with the student body as a whole.
- Building well-developed relationships with classroom teachers fosters collaboration that results in more meaningful solutions to meet student needs and enhance their learning.
- Sharing tasks across the school counseling team will create more available time to meet one on one with students.
We look forward to providing better service to students and families. See the document that accompanied this email for more details.
Thank you for your support!
