Reading Olympics at Warwick!
On Thursday, April 10th, from 6:00-9:00 PM, Warwick Elementary will be hosting the Reading Olympic site. Registration will begin at 5:30 PM. We are thrilled to be able to host this amazing event and show off our Power Paw Pride to schools all across Bucks County.
There will be police in two locations to help with traffic:
- One officer will be positioned between the two parking lots of Warwick Elementary and St. Cyril’s church on Meeting House Rd. As you know, St. Cyril’s has a parking lot which can also be accessed directly off of Almshouse Road. St. Cyril's has agreed to allow us to use their lot.
- The second officer will be positioned at the traffic light at Almshouse Road and Meeting House Road.
We will only be allowing bus traffic to enter the front loop of the school and park in the front and on the cafeteria side of the school. Busses will park/stack on the back side of the school, stretch around to the front, and enter through the bus loading platform by the cafeteria, or the front door.
We are expecting close to 700 students and parents. It is sure to be very congested in our area the evening of April 10th. Please plan to allow for extra time should you be traveling around the above intersections. If you live close to Warwick, and the weather permits, I would encourage you to walk (or ride) to school if you plan on joining us. Parking will be tight for sure, even with St. Cyril's parking lot to support the event.
Good luck to our Warwick Reading Olympic teams!
Reading Olympics Info/Parking
This night is geared toward our middle and elementary school students, so this will be a “hands-on” experience. Students will be exposed to technology such as CO2 cars, laser cutting, propeller powered vehicles, Styro Gliders, and they will have an opportunity to explore a state-of-the-art TV studio. Interested students can make a Young Engineer's badge in the Manufacturing Races exhibit, and if he or she is able to collect all 6 stickers they will be awarded a certificate classifying them as a “Certified Young Engineer. “
This is the inaugural year for this event, and we are looking forward to making it a success. We hope to see you there!
