2nd Grade Field Trip

Warwick’s 2nd graders spent a beautiful fall day at the Churchville Nature Center to learn how the Lenape community utilized the resources around them to survive. They were inspired by the creativity and inventiveness used to create fire, canoes, clay, and so much more.

Halloween Spirit

We certainly had fun during our Halloween Parade and classroom parties. It was a wonderful day. The pictures below say it all. Thank you, parents and guardians, for all of your support!

From Student Council

Leukemia & Lymphoma Drive:

Thank you to all our families for their generous donations to support our Leukemia & Lymphoma Drive. The online donations page will be accepting donations until Friday, November 9th. Congratulations to the following classrooms who collected the most coins for our drive:

  • Mrs. Jacob’s 2nd grade class – most pennies
  • Mrs. Jethon’s 4th grade class – most nickels AND dimes
  • Mrs. Dougherty’s 1st grade class – most quarters
  • Mrs. Hartzell’s 5th grade class – most mixed change
  • Mrs. Egan’s 5th grade class – most paper money

Treats for Troops:

Warwick will be collecting Halloween candy for Troops from Friday, November 2nd until Monday, November 5th.

Operation Shoebox:

Student council will again be sponsoring Operation Shoebox at Warwick. Operation Shoebox is a chance to spread joy to needy children around the world. These children typically do not have running water and/or much food to eat, so the delivery of a special package from America filled with small toys or kid-things can really put a smile on a child’s face around the holidays. If you would like to participate in this great project that makes us think about children who have needs in other parts of the world, please consider bringing in an item assigned to your grade:

  • Kindergarten & 1st grade – small simple toys – Yoyos, jump ropes, balls, toy cars, harmonicas, light-up toys with batteries etc. (must fit in shoe-box)
  • 2nd & 3rd grade - School or art supplies- pens, pencils, sharpeners, crayons, markers, note pads, coloring books and picture books, clay, solar calculators
  • 4th & 5th grade - Accessories- socks, sunglasses, hair clips, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, combs, flashlights (with extra batteries) and so on
  • 6th grade – books, magazines, stuffed animals, or any of above.

Do not include used items, war-related items (guns, military figures, etc), food, liquids or lotions, anything breakable.

All items are due by Wednesday, November 15th. We will be packing the boxes that afternoon after school (6th graders will be assisting). Thank you for supporting our project!

Celebrate Education Week

We are celebrating education on the Week of November 12-16! Please stay tuned for an email to parents/guardians explaining the date and time when each grade is holding visitation. The purpose of visitation is to give parents a glimpse into what their child's class is like. Only parents/guardians of currently enrolled Warwick students are welcome to attend. All parents/guardians need to have their PA Photo/License with them to be admitted to the building. See note on School Visits and Security below.

School Visits and Security

To protect our students and staff while school is in session, all exterior doors are locked during the school day. Parents, guardians and all visitors during the school day must enter the school using the Main Entrance. Please have a valid state issued photo identification card with you (e.g., PA License). You will use the buzzer at the exterior of our Main Entrance to state your reason for visit and show your ID. Once inside the vestibule, you will again need to be buzzed in. Once in the Main Office, you will swipe your PA Licence and receive a visitor's sticker stating your name, time ,and destination. Visitors must wear this sticker at all times and return it to the Main Office when you sign out to leave Warwick. This procedure is necessary for all visitors, even those that frequently visit and volunteer. We appreciate your support and patience.

The background image and the image above are from Mrs. Unsihuay's classroom. Students made totem pole animals as they learned about Native American culture. Each animal represents a character trait that students identified with.
Note: Parents/Guardians who do not wish to have their students' images shared on social media (i.e., newsletters, Twitter and Facebook) should indicate so on the Student Emergency & Information form found on the Parent Portal.
