September 5, 2019

Welcome to the first Warwick Weekly of the 2019-2020 school year. Our weeklies will be emailed and posted on our web page most Thursdays in the evening. This year, our newest points of interest will appear at the top along with a review of the previous week and things to look forward to for the next week; and we will cut down on redundancy by including a big link button to our Warwick Parent/Guardian Handbook each week making it easy for parents to refer to throughout the year. If you have ideas on how to improve our Warwick Weekly as a means of communication, "we want to hear from you." Please use the online feedback form that can be found at the end of each weekly to share your ideas, thoughts, and concerns with us.

Here is What Happened this Week!

This past week the following things happened...

  • We had a very positive and smile-filled first day of school!
  • We introduced our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) efforts to focus on the positive behaviors want to see while using behavioral mistakes that happen as an opportunity to learn and grow.
  • We had Back to School Nights (BTSNs) for PEN, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and special education for those grades. We are thankful to the many parents/guardians who attended; and well done teachers!
  • Teachers reviewed and practiced emergency evacuation procedures this week.

What's Happening Next?

Here are some things to look forward to next week...

  • Tomorrow is Warwick Colors Spirit Day!
  • We have Welcome Back assemblies tomorrow, too!
  • On Monday, 4th & 5th Graders will meet Music teachers, Mrs. Herrshaft and Mr. Losch for a strings demonstration and instrumental demonstration respectively.
  • BTSN for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades on Monday night. Click here for BTSN grade and program time details.
  • We will hold our first whole-school emergency evacuation drill next week. School law requires that schools practice emergency evacuation drills once a month (even in the summer!). For this and other reasons, please make sure children dress appropriately for the weather each day, including their shoe choice.

News Items:

  • PSSA reports from last year will be sent home to 4th, 5th, and 6th graders on or about September 20th. Students will receive the reports in homeroom and will put them in their school bags to be brought home to parents/guardians. Parents/guardians will receive an email reminder the day they are going home.
  • After last year's Halloween Parade, there was much talk about spreading out the Halloween experience so that it was not so much on one day for our children. This year, the Halloween Parade will be on Friday, October 25th at 9:30 a.m. We will walk along the same loop as we have in the past. Homeroom Halloween Parties will happen immediately after the parade. Homeroom parents will talk with Homeroom Teachers regarding guidelines and how many volunteers are needed. All volunteers must have CB volunteer clearances. More information about Halloween happenings will be sent at the start of October.
  • Please click on our link to the Parent/Guardian Handbook (a.k.a "The Warwick Welcome") to learn more Warwick information, practices, procedures, and policies.
Parent/Guardian Volunteer Requirements

Before parents and guardians can volunteer, they must have all necessary clearances. Click here so you are ready when volunteer opportunities arise.

Student Emergency & Information

Each year, the Central Bucks School District requires our families to fill out a student emergency & information form in the Parent Portal. The process takes approximately ten minutes to complete. The online form will ask you to confirm and/or update the following:

  • Demographic Information
  • Emergency Contacts
  • Health Information, including permission for emergency care and analgesic administration
  • Media Release Preferences

Completion of Student Emergency Information is due September 14th. THAT'S NEXT WEEK.

If you do not have a Parent Portal account, or please follow this link to request one.

If you need help with your Parent Portal account, please contact Warwick's Main Office for assistance (267-893-4050).

Thank you in advance for taking the time to update this important information!
