CBSD Farmers Market @ Barclay ES
Wednesday, June 3rd, 4pm
John Barclay Elementary School, Palomino Drive, Warrington, PA, USA
The CBSD Farmers Market is open! A week after the start of the COVID-19 crisis, we began distributing food every week on Wednesdays at 4:00 at Barclay Elementary School. We believe that in a community as well resourced as ours, no child should ever be hungry. If you find yourself in need, please stop by.
If you find yourself in a position of giving, consider supporting this initiative. Please help us share food with families and children throughout the Central Bucks School District during this crisis! Click HERE to support our Go Fund Me. Thank you for your generosity!
There are more ways than one to support! Check out the list of item donations needed in the flyer below!

Tip of the Week from Dr. McIntyre & Dr. Graz
Parenting Tip of the Week – Tools for coping with disappointment during the coronavirus crisis
Among the many stressful effects of the coronavirus pandemic on children is the distress of losing the chance to participate in important events — sports playoffs, significant birthdays, school plays, graduations and move-up ceremonies, and as we move into summer, canceled or delayed family vacations and summer camps. For helpful tips on how to help kids handle disappointment, please follow the below link to a helpful article from The Child Mind Institute:
Stay healthy and stay safe.

By this time, most of our students have become quite proficient in using technology to access academics and connect socially. It's important to ensure our students learn about internet safety and reflect characteristics of a responsible digital citizen. During these remaining weeks our weekly lessons will focus on digital citizenship. This week, kindergarten through second grade will have an introduction to the basics of digital citizenship. Third and fourth graders will begin by playing instructional games through Digital Passport. Fifth and sixth graders will take what they know to a whole new level as they play an interactive game that allows them to apply their knowledge to different situations through Digital Compass. As all these grade levels have different instructions, it's best to access my website for specific, grade level instruction. Head over to https://www.cbsd.org/Page/46032.
You can also find these weekly wellness resources on my website.
Stay safe, happy and healthy!

Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER ~ Watch On- Demand May 15th - 29th
CB Cares and CBSD Present an Online Parent Positive Event - Watch On-Demand May 15-May 29
With COVID-19 giving many of us downtime at home with our families, we invite the Central Bucks community to take this opportunity to watch SCREENAGERS NEXT CHAPTER:
Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience. This special edition includes a brief introduction by the filmmaker Dr. Delaney Ruston, plus a pre-recorded Q&A with her after the film, where she responds to some of the most frequently asked questions about the topics covered in the film. Filmmaker and physician Dr. Delaney Ruston takes the conversation around screens and teens to the next level with Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience—a film that examines the science behind teen’s emotional challenges, the interplay of social media, and most importantly, what can be done in our schools and homes to help them build crucial skills to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression in our digital age.
In Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER, we follow Delaney as she finds herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional wellbeing. She sets out to understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society, and how we, as parents and educators, can empower teens to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.
We witness Delaney as she finds her way from ineffective parenting to much-improved strategies. We follow other personal stories of families from an array of backgrounds with a spectrum of emotional challenges. We also observe approaches in schools that provide strategies relevant beyond the classroom setting. Interwoven into the stories are surprising insights from brain researchers, psychologists, and thought leaders that reveal evidence-based ways to support mental wellness among our youth. The impact of social media and other screen time is incorporated in all the topics raised in Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER, how it may be impacting our teens’ mental health, and what we can do to help foster youth in the face of struggles.
