6th Grade Student vs. Warwick Staff Kickball

We are so proud of our students and staff for their excellent sports-person-ship, teamwork, and overall Warwick spirit as they either competed or cheered during the 6th Gr Student vs. Warwick Staff Kickball Tournament. In the end, the students were victorious, but we all won because we all had fun while being together for this fantastic event. Thank you, 6th Grade teachers, for coordinating the Kickball Tournament for all to enjoy!

The 4 to 1

There is a rule of thumb for encouraging positive behavior in schools and at home: give four positive statements of feedback/praise to children for every one thing to improve. (By the way, it is difficult to select only four positives at Warwick Elementary!)


Four Positive Things:

  • Gratitude: This is the time of year when many nice things happen. I have witnessed and heard of students going out of their way to thank their teachers for planning field trips and helping them with their assessments or other challenges. Did you know that being grateful is good for you? Keep it up, Warwick!
  • Compassion for our Furry Friends: Our friends from Roxy Therapy Dogs, Freya and Cooper, come to Warwick so our students can read to them. In addition to making if fun to ready, Freya and Cooper bring out the compassion in all who cross their path.
  • Accomplishment: So proud of our 6th Graders for completing their Assessment in a way that makes all of us--students, teachers, parents, and this principal--so very, very proud!

  • Upstanders: As students in 2nd Grade know from NOVA's visit to their classroom, being an upstander is an important thing to be. I want to commend the students who have been using their voices to alert a Warwick staff member when another student needs help. Students, it is one of the most important things that you can learn to do. Use your voice--speak up--when you see something that needs attention or help.


One Thing to Work On: Recess Respect, Responsibility, Cooperation, and Excellence.

Recess is for...

  • fresh air
  • movement
  • socialization

Recess is not for...

  • unkind words or actions
  • intense competitive play


Thank you for partnering with us in celebrating our 4 and improving on our 1!

Reminders

Student Dismissal

Our instructional day ends at 3:45 pm. Our dismissal procedures occur between 3:45 and 4:05 pm.


Early Pick Up:

Picking up students early from school on a routine basis can add up to a significant loss of school time. When picking up students early from school, parents/guardians must come to the Main Office and have PA State Photo ID. Please make sure there is an excusable reason to excuse your child from school before 3:45 p.m. Here is a list of reasons that are excusable in PA Public Schools: illness, quarantine, death in the immediate family, religious holidays, home emergencies, and health care directly related to the student.



Car Riders at Regular Dismissal:

Parents and guardians who pick up their students(s) at dismissal time must use the Meetinghouse Road parking lot and follow the loop noted in the map above. Parents/guardians should NOT get out of their cars. Students will be walked to their cars for safety and security reasons. We appreciate your support and patience.

Changes to Your Dismissal Plans

If it is necessary to change your normal pick-up routine at the end of the day, i.e., a different adult, bus rather than car, car rather than bus, a change in child care arrangements, etc., a written note must be presented to the classroom teacher, who will share the information with the office.


Any phone calls regarding a change in end-of-day plans must be directed to the office before 3:00 PM through a phone call (267-893-4055) or via e-mail and not directly to the classroom teacher, as teachers are engaged with students' learning and will not be able to check their email during the instructional day.
