Interim Music Teacher

Last week our music teacher, Mrs. Christine Volpe, began a medical leave in order to undergo some surgery. Mrs. Volpe will be out on leave through April 22nd.

I am pleased to inform you that in her absence Mrs. Muriel Hastings will be taking over the Linden and Gayman music schedules. Mrs. Hastings previously has had numerous substituting experiences. As a result, Mrs. Hastings is well familiar with our community, many of our children and families, and certainly the Central Bucks music curriculum. Our music program will be in good hands in Mrs. Volpe’s absence!

I know that we all wish Mrs. Volpe a successful and quick recovery.

Parent Positive Series

We are excited to announce a newly formed collaboration between the Central Bucks School District, CB Cares, CB YMCA, and the Doylestown Hospital. Through this collaboration, we are hosting five parent sessions titled, Parent Positive: Partnerships creating a healthier, stronger community.

The discussion will focus on getting a good night's sleep, healthy eating and balancing activities with family time. Leave with practical advice on developing a healthy family routine.

Dr. Komasz’s presentation will be held in the Lenape Middle School Auditorium on Thursday, February 18th and will begin at 7:00 pm. Nutrition Expert Debbie Davis, RD, LDN, MBA, and Licensed Psychologist Gail Karafin, Ed.D. will join Dr. Komasz for a Question & Answer session.
