Dino Dig

Our 2nd grade students learned about dinosaur fossils and more! They even saw a real dinosaur skull and acted as archaeologists sifting through dirt.

Random Acts of Kindness Day: February 17th

We are excited to celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day on Thursday! Being kind and giving praise leads to immeasurable gains. Your thoughtfulness can turn someone's day around, leaving you both feeling great. Researchers, such as Shawn Anchor, report that genuine praise and kindness lead to greater success. When people feel happy, they are more productive, creative, and innovative. Let's make someone's day!


Student Council's ideas worth spreading:

  • Give a compliment to a friend.
  • Ask someone to play with you.
  • Say "thank you" or write a thank you note.

Car Rider Reminders

To ensure a safe and efficient arrival and dismissal, we ask that you follow these rules. Thank you for your patience during arrival and dismissal.


  1. Display your family's name on the "pick up placard".
  2. Drive slowly and stay in your lane in the parking lot.
  3. Stay in your car, as students enter and exit the vehicle.
  4. For their safety, students should use the passenger side door only.

Sparks

As part of the state mandate for career education, all Pennsylvania students are to receive information on the various pathways available to them to pursue their interests including post-secondary education, the world of work or the military. As one part of this we have developed a long-standing relationship with the local Career Technical Center, Middle Bucks Institute of Technology.


At the high school level, our students can spend half of their school day at MBIT in classrooms and program laboratories receiving specific training in areas such as horticulture or electronics. While in the middle school grades, students attend presentations about the many programs which can lead to visits or even shadowing a current student in programs such as commercial art or dental occupations. Summer school programs are also conducted in many areas of interest including Drone Discovery and Pastry Art.


Over the last few years, we have also shared information with our elementary students through in-person tours and most recently real-time virtual panels and visits given by the current MBIT students to our sixth-grade classes. These tours are scheduled again for this May. Take a tour yourself and find out more about the many opportunities available to the Central Bucks students: Virtual Open House.

2021 PSSA Student Reports

On Thursday, February 17th, the 2021 PSSA Individual Student Report (ISR) will be sent home in a sealed envelope with your 4th - 6th grade child. The assessment was administered in grades 3-6 in English Language Arts and Mathematics, and grade 4 in Science during the 2020-2021 school year.


If your child receives a blank report, that is in an indication that your child did not take the assessment. Additionally, you will not receive a report if your child was not a student at Gayman Elementary School during our last school year. Thank you!

Attention 6th Grade Families
