CBSD Farmers Market

The CBSD Farmers Market is open! A week after the start of the COVID-19 crisis, we began distributing food every week on Wednesdays at 4:00 at Barclay Elementary School. We believe that in a community as well resourced as ours, no child should ever be hungry. If you find yourself in need, please stop by.


If you find yourself in a position of giving, consider supporting this initiative. Please help us share food with families and children throughout the Central Bucks School District during this crisis! ClickHERE to support our Go Fund Me. Thank you for your generosity!

Exploring Possibilities & Taking Risks

Hello, everyone!


This week all students in kindergarten through sixth grade will explore possibilities and taking risks. Life presents us with all sorts of possibilities, but sometimes those possibilities seem scary or challenging. If we take a chance or a risk, we open ourselves up to all sorts of wonderful possibilities. Through this lesson we will explore possibilities, chances and risks, and the value of a growth mindset. Feel free to share any of your reflections on the worksheets provided with Dr. Graz at sgraziosihibbs@cbsd.org.


Please use the following two resources this week to explore possibilities and taking risks:



You can also find these weekly wellness resources on my website.


Stay safe, happy and healthy!

Dr. Graz
