Meet Theresa Sweeney, Staff Nurse

My name is Mrs. Theresa Sweeney, and I will be working as the staff nurse in the health office at Gayman. I have been a nurse for 15 years. In 2021 I became the nurse at Newtown Discovery Preschool. Prior to that I spent many years working with long term care patients and short-term rehabilitation patients. I look forward to getting to know your school community. My goal is to ensure your students health and safety while they are at school. Respectfully, Theresa Sweeney LPN

5th & 6th Grade Choir

Join the 5th & 6th grade choir! This choral ensemble will provide each student with the tools necessary to foster musicianship and to develop a sense of pride and friendship. Performances at the elementary level will also prepare the students for opportunities at the middle school like musicals, select groups, and winter/spring concerts.


If your child is interested, please complete the permission form, detach, and return to Mrs. Simon by Thursday, September 15th. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email Lisa Simon, music teacher, at lmsimon@cbsd.org.

Bus Emergency Evacuation Drills

The state mandated school bus emergency drills for the year 2022-2023 are scheduled for the week of September 12th – 16th. Barring inclement weather, we will be conducting emergency practice drills on these days.

MTSS STAR Assessment

Central Bucks School District is committed to ensuring that each child makes significant academic progress. To do this, we have been implementing a research-based process to link academic support with specific student learning needs. This process is known as a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) and provides all students with timely and targeted instruction based upon the results of various assessment tools in reading and mathematics.


The Star Assessments by Renaissance, which were adopted by the district last year, are completed by students electronically in class. More information for parents is available on the Renaissance website at Parent's Guide - Star Assessments | Renaissance. As in the past with our prior assessments, you will be notified if your child is in need of intervention or enrichment supports.

Kids Care Club September

Did you know that kids who do volunteer work improve their teamwork and cooperation skills, develop deeper empathy and gratitude, and have a stronger sense of community?


That's why Gayman has its very own volunteer group: the Kids Care Club. Every month, we offer opportunities to help and give back, either at an after school event or through a project at home. Whether your child has been to every KCC meeting so far or is brand new to the school, we hope to see them at the first KCC meeting of the school year, on Wednesday, September 28th from 3:30 to 5pm. Click on the this link to learn more and sign up: Kids Care Club September event!

Homeroom Parent Volunteers

Today is the last day to submit your name for Homeroom Parent/Homeroom Assistant. To volunteer to be a Homeroom Parent click HERE. Volunteer clearances are required.


One Homeroom Parent and one Assistant will be selected at random for each class. Assignments will be announced on September 19th and an introductory meeting will be held on September 29th at 9am.

GHSA Family Dues

Welcome back to school! This school year, the Gayman Home and School Association (GHSA) will be continuing to use annual Family Dues to help supplement the cost of all the amazing experiences the GHSA helps bring to Gayman Elementary.


Some of the experiences your children will have the ability to participate in, with the help of the GHSA are: Popsicles on the Playground, Fall Festival, Bingo, Dance, Library Technology, Author’s Day, School Assemblies, Kids Care Club and the End of Year Picnic.
