Please join us for a parent informational session on cyberbullying on Wednesday, February 10th, at 7:00 pm at Groveland Elementary School, 100 North Easton Road, Doylestown, PA 18901. Parents and guardians of students in all elementary grade levels are invited. The snow date is Thursday, March 3rd.

Topics will include:

  • An overview of the NOVA cyberbullying prevention program presented to 5th graders

We hope you will join us for this important presentation.

Microsoft Office Free to Students in Grades 5 - 12

Central Bucks School District has partnered with Microsoft to offer Microsoft Office 365 to students in Grades 5-12. Office 365's productivity suite enables students and teachers to share documents, access Microsoft software applications online and work collaboratively. As the district increases both teacher and student access to educational technology, we wanted to remind you of a great opportunity.

Microsoft Office is available free for students in grades 5-12. Students may want to take the opportunity to install the full Office applications on up to 5 PCs, Macs or tablets for free. This includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. Students can learn more about the process by clicking here.

Once downloaded, students can work with classmates online and see each other's changes in real time with Office Online, the full version of Office or OneDrive.

A Night of Service . . .

As the Home & School prepare for the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. We are still in need of volunteers to help facilitate this special evening for our community. If you are willing to help monitor an activity, please e-mail Anita Willbanks and provide her with your email address.

You will still be able to enjoy watching your child participate in all of the activities. Thank you, in advance, for your support of this event. I'm looking forward to seeing you on the evening of Thursday, January 21st.
