Primary Author Visit

The Gayman Elementary Library is excited to announce that students in grades K-3 will be having an in-person author visit on Wednesday, May 18th.


Majo Gordon-Dougherty, is Doylestown’s own author of picture books for students that tell stories to nurture readers’ self-esteem and confidence—as well as encourage perseverance and self-worth.


We are working with Majo to offer students and families signed copies of her books at a discount to our Gayman Families. As always, this is a completely optional opportunity. If your family would like a book, please fill out the order form and return it to school.


Orders are due by Thursday, May 26th. Books will be distributed to students during the week of June 1st.

Move Up Day

Gayman will hold a Move Up Day on Thursday, June 9th from 9:00-10:00AM.


Students will not be assigned a specific teacher by that date. Instead students will meet all grade level teachers and learn about the highlights of what the 2022-2023 school year will hold for them. Our goal in this activity is to build excitement about the coming year and reduce anxiety for the next school year, as we head into the summer. We look forward to the upcoming school year!

Required Health Examinations

Pennsylvania mandates the following health examinations:

  • Physicals: School entry (Kindergarten), grades 6 and 11
  • Dentals: School entry (Kindergarten), grades 3 and 7


Parents are urged to have physical and dental examinations completed by their family physician or dentist and submitted prior to October 15th of the year that they are due. Send health forms to Sara Hedges, our school nurse, at shedges@cbsd.org.

Injuries & Doctor's Note

A doctor’s note is needed for any student that sustains an injury which requires a medical device, such as a cast, splint or crutches.


The doctor’s note should state any restrictions the child has and that they are allowed to attend school with the injury. The note should also state whether the child can participate in gym and/or recess.

Gayman Student Handbook 2021-2022

As polices change, the CBSD school board policies will supersede the Gayman Student Handbook.

Gayman Code of Conduct

The Gayman Elementary School Code of Conduct outlines the appropriate behaviors that show respect, responsibility, kindness, cooperation, and perseverance. On occasion, a student may need a reminder. Then, the Code of Conduct becomes a "Stop and Think" form which encourages students to pause and reflect on their actions. "Stop and Think" forms are to be signed by parents and returned to the classroom teacher.
