TOWN HALL MEETING for CB EAST STADIUM

The Central Bucks School District will be hosting a public meeting to discuss the proposed stadium project at Central Bucks HS East. The meeting is scheduled for March 19th at 7:00 PM at Lenape Middle School's auditorium, and will provide an opportunity to voice your encouragement of this project. We are looking forward to a packed house and thank you in advance for your support of this important piece of culture for our school and students.

RENOVATION PROJECT UPDATE

With the completion of our new main entrance, atrium and classrooms, we are now turning our attention to PHASE III of our renovation project, set to begin in a few weeks. This phase will focus on the construction of new band and orchestra rooms, providing both quality performance areas as well as appropriate storage spaces for our music program, and also feature a total makeover of our art studios. Speaking of our new lobby, check out some photographs of our opening day for students - click on the image to enlarge!

TEAM GREENE

March has been set aside as Team Greene month in support of Mr. Larry Greene, former head football coach for 24 years and current faculty member at CB East. Mr. Greene is battling multiple myeloma, and our staff and students are coming together to raise awareness for this disease and to lend support to Mr. Greene and his family. If you are interested in purchasing a "Team Greene" t-shirt in support of this cause, please click the link: http://www.cbsd.org/schools/cbeast/Pages/default.aspx and look for the Team Greene section under "School News."
