Halloween is around the corner, and we have begun planning the festivities! We are asking parents to please take caution when selecting a costume for the parade. Students should have a normal field of vision and should be able to walk freely (costumes should not be too long).
Also, we ask that you please avoid costumes that include blood, gore, or weapons of any type. Items that are considered play weapons (knives, swords, guns, etc.) should remain at home.
The Halloween parade will begin at the main entrance of the school @ 9:30 AM.
Students and staff will exit the building in order of grade level (K-6). The parade will proceed in the direction of the butterfly garden and around the back of the building to the front in a circle. The parade will circle the building two full rotations. Other Halloween details are as follows:
Students are encouraged to arrive to school wearing their costume.
Parents are invited to watch the parade and should stand along the sides of the marked parade route.
Identified parent volunteers will be admitted into the building following the parade to assist with parties.

The CB Farmers Market at Barclay Every 2nd & 4th Thursday
Any Central Bucks family who may need a little extra food assistance is welcome to join on us at Barclay Elementary School. Our drive-up food distribution runs from 4:30 to 5:30 PM on Thursday, October 13th. We generally have free dry goods, fresh produce, milk, eggs, and bread, and often have some frozen meat and poultry. At each event we pass out an average of 10,000 pounds of food. Moving forward, our markets will operate on the 2nd and 4th THURSDAYS (not Wednesdays, like last year) of each month.
No advanced sign-up is necessary. We kindly ask that you do not line up before 4:30 so as not to interfere with our student dismissal, and that you do not block our neighbors’ driveways. If you do line up during our student dismissal, you will be kindly asked to leave. Also, do not pull forward until you are certain that you have enough room and will not block someone’s driveway. Our neighbors are very understanding and supportive of our work, but also need to come and go during our events. We hope to see many families at our food distribution on Thursday, October 27th at 4:30.
