PSSA . . . Last One!

Pennsylvania’s State Assessment System measures the academic performance of students using the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) at the elementary level. All students are included in this testing, with exclusions for only a very few students. The PSSA assessment provides schools with valuable information about student achievement and program quality.

This year the testing will occur during the following testing windows.

  • Science: Grade 4 - April 23rd & 24th

Please see the Information for Parents posted on the Parent Resources section of the Central Bucks website. Detailed information about each test and overall testing procedures, as well as specific information regarding the cell phone ban during testing is available through the links provided.

Parents can help by encouraging their children to take these tests seriously. It is also important to make sure that children get plenty of rest during the testing weeks and have a healthy breakfast. As always, we ask your support in helping your child do his/her best on these tests. Should you have any questions about the testing, do not hesitate to contact me.

Walk For A Cause . . .

On Friday, April 26th, we will host our annual Walk for a Cause. The selected charity this school year is the American Cancer Society. As the largest voluntary health organization in the United States, the American Cancer Society is committed to saving lives from cancer. They save lives by helping people stay well, by finding cures, and fighting back. For more information please see the flyer from last Wednesday's folder.

Got Talent?

The 2012-2013 Talent Show is coming! Auditions will be held after school on April 30th for grades 1 – 3 and May 1st for grades 4-6. Students who wish to try out for the talent show must return the bottom portion of this flyer by April 24th.”

Help Wanted . . .

Volunteer opportunities for 3rd grade are filling up quickly. To see those times still available, simply click here. FYI, our long term goal is to offer a similar system across all grade levels. Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you in the building soon!
