Thank you to our Kids Care Club who helped assemble flavor kits for the Bucks County Opportunity Council! These students also made spring-themed and uplifting cards to accompany the kits. They are making a difference!

Sparks

Below is a Sparks newsletter article we sent out almost two years ago. The topic is still very relevant. Please take the time to watch with your children for some interesting and needed discussion.


In today’s world we are all trying to know what is best for our children but it is difficult to see what lies ahead for them. The Sparks video below gives some economic insight into the past, present and future. Please share your reactions to this video with you children for their own understanding of future possibilities.


Success in the new economy

"Show me 5!" and "Mustang of the Day"

We are pleased to announce two awards for our Magnificent Mustangs.


Students can earn "Show me 5" cards for displaying one of our 5 Gayman Mustang character traits: Respect, Responsibility, Kindness, Cooperation, and Perseverance. Then, once a week, one child's name is pulled from each grade to earn a Magnificent Mustang wrist band.


Everyday, one child will earn the award "Mustang of the Day". This special award is given to one child from an adult at Gayman. These students will be invited to participate in a special event with Mrs. Carter at the end of the trimester.


Congratulations for showing extraordinary character!
