Our weeklies will be emailed and posted on our web page most Thursdays in the evening. The newest points of interest will appear at the top along with a review of the previous week and things to look forward to for the next week. We include links to our Warwick Parent/Guardian Handbook and a page where we curate previously publicized flyers for easy referral. If you have ideas on how to improve our Warwick Weekly as a means of communication, "we want to hear from you." Please use the online feedback form that can be found at the end of each Weekly to share your ideas, thoughts, and concerns with us.

NEWS ITEMS

Welcome, Miss Kazokas!

Please welcome Miss Danielle Kazokas, our newest Autistic Support teacher at Warwick Elementary. Miss Kazokas is an East Stroudsburg University graduate. She studied Early Childhood and Special Education there and then received her Master’s degree in Special Education with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis at Slippery Rock University. She became a teacher to have a positive influence in the lives of the students and she loves seeing and helping other people learn. In her words, “There is nothing more rewarding than watching a student succeed!” Her fourth grade teacher was the person who inspired her to become a teacher. She shared: “At times I struggled in math, but she was patient and always took the time to help me understand the concepts better. She believed in me as a learner and made learning fun!” Before joining us, she worked at a private school for students with Autism. Her favorite book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. In her free time she enjoys spending time with my family and friends and she looks forward to working with the students, their families and my co-workers here at Warwick.


Miss Kazokas is taking the position left by Mrs. Amanda McCaughey who accepted a teaching job in another district. We wish both teachers happiness and success in their new positions!

Items Needed for the Warwick Spring Musical

Throughout the year, our Spring Musical Directors may ask for items that you may have at home but no longer need to use as props or to create costumes, etc. For now, if you have fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, or anything sewing related that you do not need, please bring them to the Main Office to the attention of Mrs. Lacey Martin (who is also the Advisor for our newly created Sewing Club!).

Halloween Safety & Fun

Date & Time: To coordinate safety across all CBSD schools, we will have our Halloween Parade and Parties on October 31. The parade will begin at 9:30 AM. Party times will be communicated through homerooms.


Kindergarten: Kindergarten's Field Trip will still be held on the 25th as planned. Kindergarten Families have received a letter explaining the parade.


Costumes:

We ask parents to use caution when sending in a costume for our school parade. Students need to be able to have a normal field of vision, and should be able to walk freely (costumes should not be too long or bulky). Costumes should not be gruesome or frightening; and anything that could be considered a play weapon should remain at home.


Parking:

The main parking lot area will be restricted from parking. We appreciate St. Cyril's for allowing us to use their parking lot on Parade Day.


Rain Plan:

In the event of inclement weather, grades 1 - 3 will parade in the hallways. We will not allow parents/guardians into the building in the event of a hallway parade. We will take lots of pictures to share.


Parent/Guardian Party Volunteers:

ONLY pre-arranged parent/guardian volunteers who have clearances will be allowed into the building and classrooms as helpers for parties. For safety/security reasons, teachers will communicate the names of those parents/guardians who are pre-arranged volunteers. No one else will be admitted into the school. Thank you for your understanding and support as we maintain a fun and safe/secure day for our children and staff.

Casual for a Cause

During September, the Warwick Staff raised $148 which went to the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia.


For the month of October, Mrs. Emma Unsihuay was randomly picked to select the next good cause. She selected the American Heart Association: “The American Heart Association holds a special place in my heart. Pun intended. I have lived with a heart condition since birth and have lost family members to heart disease. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide and stroke ranks second globally. The AHA works relentlessly through research and education to create a world of longer, healthier lives.”


So, when you see our staff dressed casually on October 18 and October 25 you'll know they are supporting Ms. Unsihuay's choice, AHA.
