Outdoor Classroom

When the students and teachers of Warwick Elementary saw that some of our trees needed to be taken down, and idea was born--what if we re-purpose those trees using their trunk to make sitting stools and benches while using the wood chips to fill and area? Thanks to Mr. Robbins, Mr. Wade, and Mr. Willing of the CB Grounds Crew, we now have a beautiful area just past our playground where we can learn together outside! We also kept the branches to be used for a project we will do in November for Outdoor Classroom Day. Stay tuned for more information about that.

Warwick School Store

We are excited to announce that the Warwick School Store will be open for business next week! Stay tuned for more information on the announcements regarding when the store is open and how students may go about purchasing items.

Red Ribbon Week - Oct. 22 – 26th. Our overall theme this year is Spare Your Life & Choose to be Drug Free; Spare Your Change & Choose to Help Others. Each day will feature a theme day that ties in with the overall theme. We’ll also be asking the kids to bring in loose change for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society so they can experience that natural high that comes from giving to others. A detailed flier went home today.

Veterans Day Celebration November 12th
Veterans are invited to join us at Warwick for a breakfast and assembly to honor their service to our great nation. A detailed flier and invitation went home with students today.
