The SOAR Award

October: Organized

Each month Pine Run will highlight one of our 5 character traits, Safe, Organized, Accepting, Respect, and Responsibility. Teachers then nominate students who exemplify the highlighted trait in the school setting. Each month a building-wide winner is announced and they receive the SOAR Award and button. October was all about being organized, and I am pleased to announce Tiara W. from Mrs. Martin's 5th grade class was our building-wide winner. Mrs. Martin shared that Tiara was the first person she thought of when hearing this month's focus was organization. Mrs. Martin explained how Tiara's organizational skills help her get her work completed in a timely manner. She makes sure that all her assignments are completed in a high-quality manner. Her desk is always neat and organized which helps her find everything she needs immediately. We are so proud of Isaiah!


Thank you, Leo from Mrs. Diaz's third grade class, Leah from Mrs. Plack's fourth grade class, and Aadhya from Mrs. Treude's fourth grade class for sharing your talent with us!

The CB Farmers Market at Barclay

Any Central Bucks family who may need a little extra food assistance is welcome to join on us at Barclay Elementary School. Our drive-up food distribution runs from 4:30 to 5:30 PM on the 2nd and 4th THURSDAYS (not Wednesdays, like last year) of each month. We generally have free dry goods, fresh produce, milk, eggs, and bread, and often have some frozen meat and poultry. At each event we pass out an average of 10,000 pounds of food.

No advanced sign-up is necessary. We kindly ask that you do not line up before 4:30 so as not to interfere with our student dismissal, and that you do not block our neighbors’ driveways. If you do line up during our student dismissal, you will be kindly asked to leave. Also, do not pull forward until you are certain that you have enough room and will not block someone’s driveway. Our neighbors are very understanding and supportive of our work, but also need to come and go during our events. We hope to see many families at our food distribution.

Laptop Breakage

We have seen a rise in the number of screen breaks for student laptops. Our policy covers 2 broken screens per device. If your child’s laptop screen breaks 3 times, we will send you an invoice for the repair and labor. The current cost for this is $200. Please remind your child to care for their laptop.

Some simple steps to assist are:

  • Use two hands when holding or moving the device.
  • Use only the provided digital pen or finger on the screen.
  • Use only the power adapter that came with the device.
  • Use a microfiber cloth to clean the screen.
  • Keep device stored in the provided case. This includes traveling through the hallways, on buses, or anytime the device is not being utilized.
  • Make sure nothing is on the keyboard, close the lid, and remove all cables if any are plugged into the laptop.
  • Be careful when placing your case on the floor. Keep the device off the floor so screens do not get stepped on by others.
