Revisions to our Elementary Report Card and Portfolio Conferences . . .
Communication between school and home about a child's academic progress and personal growth should occur throughout the school year. As we continue to revise our current student reporting system in preparation for the 2014-2015 school year, we want to make you aware of resources available to the Warwick community. Mark your calendar for Monday, April 7th at 7:00 PM. Central Bucks staff will make a presentation to the East Cluster at Cold Spring Elementary School.
Additonal resources are also now availble for your review regarding the new Standards-Based Progress Reporting System . . . Simply click the links below for more information:
CHANGES TO THE 2013-14 SCHOOL CALENDAR
On January 14th, the School Board approved the following revisions to the district calendar:
Monday, January 27th will no longer be a “snow make-up day." Instead, it will remain a Professional Development Day – no school for students.
Monday, April 21st has been changed from a "possible snow make-up day" to an actual make-up day. School will be in session for all students.
The last day of school has been moved from June 12th to Friday, June 13th, barring future snow events. June 12th will be a full day; June 13th will be Early Dismissal.
Professional Development Days have been added on June 16th and 17th.

NOTE DATE CHANGE!
Once again, NOVA (Network Of Victim Assistance) will be providing a parent workshop for our CB East Cluster. Learn about the Cyberbullying Prevention Program Central Bucks School District provides to its 5th graders.
- How many people know your child's password?
- Are you aware of current social media platforms?
- Do you know how to support your child if a cyberbullying situation occurs?
Please join us on Thursday, February 6th at 7:00 p.m. at Cold Spring Creamery Elementary School in the library to stay "one-step ahead" of the rapidly changing technology our children are gaining access to at an alarmingly early age.
