It's been an AWESOME opening at Warwick Elementary!
Meet Mrs. Sleicher
I am excited to have the opportunity to fill Mr. Freyer’s position as student support counselor for Warwick Elementary School this school year. As I am new, I thought I would take the opportunity to share a little bit about my background with all of you.
Originally from Long Island, I received my undergraduate degree in Education and Masters Degree in School Counseling from James Madison University. It was there that I met my husband Drew, who grew up in Doylestown. After visiting his hometown on several occasions I knew this was where I wanted to someday raise a family.
We started out in Morris County, NJ where I worked as a middle school counselor and teacher, until a job transfer took us back to Virginia and a new role for me as an elementary counselor. We never lost site however, of our goal to move to the Central Bucks School District. We are presently living in Furlong raising our 4 year old daughter Kiera and 2 year old daughter Karissa. I spent the last two years and Groveland Elementary and was honored to be offered the position at Warwick.
During my "free" time, I enjoy being with the family - taking the girls to the park, beach, craft shows, or any other family community event. While I am loyal to my NY Giants and NY Rangers, I am a huge fan of the Phillies and we try to get to games whenever we can!
I am proud to be a part of the Central Bucks School system, and absolutely excited to be a member of the Warwick team! I hope to be a smiling face you come to recognize when you visit Warwick Elementary. My door is always open as I welcome the opportunity to work with you and your children.
Please be on the lookout for sign-up forms for counseling groups that I plan to run this fall. Forms will be located in the atrium during the Back To School Nights. I will also include the form on guidance link on the Warwick website.
I am looking forward to a GREAT year and the lasting relationships I hope to make with my students, their families, and the community of Warwick Elementary School.
Please communicate changes to dismissal (anything other than riding their assigned bus home), in writing, to the office and/or classroom teacher, as early as possible. We cannot honor changes in dismissal based on a student’s belief that their routine should be changed.
Remember, we will not be calling into classrooms and releasing students for dismissal after 3:30. For safety reasons, it is important that students and teachers follow a consistent, predictable routine.
Thank you for planning ahead to set our students and teachers up for a safe, orderly dismissal each day.
The Central Bucks School District is pleased to announce that we are now able to provide text messaging for emergency school closings, delayed openings, early dismissals, and bus transportation issues via SMS text messaging to mobile phones.
Regulations require that text messages can only be sent to recipients who have subscribed to receive these messages. Therefore, Central Bucks School District will not send an SMS message to any phone that is not in the list of subscribed phone numbers.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not attempt to register for alerts if you are an owner of a PanTech AT&T phone. AT&T has been notified of a problem which causes uses to receive multiple alerts and is working on a resolution.

Birthday Celebration Reminder
This is Warwick's 5th year of being food-free for birthday celebrations. If you would like to help celebrate your child's birthday at school in some way, here are some suggestions:
- Purchase a book from Mrs. Kehan's wish list and dedicate it to your child
- Come in and read a book to the class
- Hand out small tokens such as pencils, stickers, bookmarks, erasers, etc.
Always work directly with your child's teacher to finalize any plans.
Thank you for helping us create healthy habits at Warwick.
