Reminder--Clearance Information for Volunteers

Volunteers must have their clearances on file with the CBSD Human Resources Department prior to starting volunteer work. The new Pennsylvania State mandate does allow until July 1, 2016 to obtain background checks. However, in the best interest of the safety and security of our students, we are asking volunteers to comply with submitting background checks prior to volunteering in the 2015-2016 school year.

If you have already submitted paperwork you do not need to take any further action at this time.

This online process is ONLY for those who have not submitted clearances / certifications as of October 1, 2015.

Updates from Mr. Henry Hunt, CB West Athletic Director

CB West Sporting News--Week of 10/12/15


Football- The team had a tough game against CR South this past weekend. There were a few bright spots this weekend on the offensive side of the ball which will help as we take on a tough Quakertown team on Friday, October 16.

Field Hockey- Field hockey continued their winning streak this past week and remains undefeated. They have moved to #3 in the PIAA District One Power Rankings and defeated the #4 team, Neshaminy, on Tuesday night.

Boys Soccer- The boys went 1-1 again this week. They are playing through some injuries now, but are excited to get healthy for the play-offs.

Girls Soccer- The team celebrated with a nice win for Senior night on Thursday. The girls look to finish the season strong and sneak in to the play-offs with some positive momentum. On Monday, October 19 the girls take on CB East for the annual Kick Pink game. Come out to enjoy the festivities and support a great cause!

Golf- 9th grader Luca Jezzeny finished 10th overall at the District One championships and will advance to regionals next week. Coach Schilling is optimistic that Luca will advance and represent West at the State Championships in York, PA later this month.

Tennis- Girls Tennis is sending two teams to the district doubles tournament this weekend at Tennis Zone in Quakertown. Good luck ladies!

Boys Cross Country- The boys finished last week undefeated in their conference. They spent the weekend completing an undefeated invitational season with a win at William Tennent. Keep up the great work boys!

Girls Cross Country-The girls just spent the weekend winning the Gettysburg invitational. The girls will now focus their training this week and next to prepare for SOL championships at Lehigh University on Friday, October 23.

Ladies Volleyball– The girls teamed up with CB East this week for their “Pink Out” game. The coaches, parents, and players put together a great event. The crowd Thursday night was fantastic and added to the positive energy. These events and the parents and students who are involved in planning and running them are one of the many reasons that “West Is Best.”

Cheer- The girls continue to prepare for competition while also supporting the football teams. Last Saturday's cheer clinic was a huge success. The youth cheerleaders will be joining our squad on the sidelines for this week’s football games. GO BUCKS!!!

CB West Field Hockey Team Holds Successful Pink Out

Team members sold pink t-shirts, baked goods, and accepted donations. Proceeds will go to Play 4 the Cure and Doylestown Hospital Cancer Center. The undefeated Bucks varsity team downed Souderton 7-1 in the contest at War Memorial Field. Pictured are West Varsity and JV team members and coaches. 9th grade team members also helped with the fundraiser.
