We are Thankful!

This year we will once again extend the spirit of giving to the Thanksgiving Holiday. As a school community, we would like to offer support to Gayman families in need by means of food baskets. Each classroom will be collecting items to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for a family in need. We are suggesting that each child bring in a food item from the list below. Contributions will be collected in the classrooms beginning Wednesday, November 3rd through Thursday, November 18th.


If you would like to make a monetary contribution, we will use the funds to purchase grocery store gift cards for families. Please send your donation (cash or check made payable to “Gayman Elementary School”) to the school office in an envelope marked “Thanksgiving Fund.”


We appreciate your voluntary participation in this worthwhile project. We truly believe that in giving we also receive, and helping others immeasurably enriches our children’s lives.


Kindergarten, 1st, & 2nd:

  • 1 Box of Stovetop Stuffing or Stuffing Mix
  • 1 Box of Instant Mashed Potatoes
  • 1 Jar of Chicken or Turkey Gravy
  • 1 Box of Granola Bars

Attention 5th & 6th Grade Students!

Reading Olympics Teams are forming! Reading Olympics is a reading competition facilitated by the Bucks County IU in which 5th and 6th grade students work on teams to read a list of 25 books. They will compete against other Bucks County schools by answering questions about their reading in April.

Wall of Heroes

To honor the men and women who have served, we are creating a Wall of Heroes! Please feel free to choose one template, add a photo or draw a picture, and then, send it in with your child. Your family member/friend will be honored on our Wall of Heroes!


These posters will be hanging in the main hallway of Gayman for the month of November.

Veteran Guest Speakers: Nov. 11th

At Gayman Elementary School, we believe in honoring the men and women who serve, and have served, in our military. Their dedication to this country is valued and appreciated!


To mark this special day, we are hosting "Veteran Class Speakers". Any veteran, or someone currently serving in the military, is invited to speak to a class. The time of the presentation will be determined by the teacher and speaker.


A 20-minute presentation would include:

  • A description of your military job/responsibilities
  • A favorite memory from your service
  • Questions from the students


Ideally, we need 20 veterans. NOTE: While we will make every effort to match you with your child's (grandchild's) class, you may be speaking to a different class. Email Jennifer Costello at jcostello@cbsd.org, if you are interested before November 5th.


To all of our veterans - thank you for your service!

Flags on the Lawn

We invite our community to share the names of their military friends and family. For every name shared, a flag will be placed on the Gayman lawn to honor that individual. Thank you!


Submit the veteran's name here.

International Travel & Technology Access

The Technology and Innovation Department blocks Microsoft Office 365 logins to Outlook, OneDrive, ClassLink, and Canvas from foreign countries. This aids in protecting our CBSD user accounts and organization from malicious computer attacks from outside of the United States.


Students who travel cannot assume their devices will work once they leave the United States. For student out-of-country access requests, please know that access to technology for vacations will not be approved at this time.

Attendance

Parents and guardians are able to submit an absence request via the Parent Portal. When a student is absent from school, but the school did not receive communication from the parent or guardian, a text message and email will be sent.


All attendance questions can be directed to Christine Stevens, cstevens@cbsd.org, in the Gayman Office.
