Building Blocks

John Barclay Elementary School of Central Bucks School District is focused on improving the school community through its Barclay’s Building Blocks program. Each of the building blocks — Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Honesty, Perseverance and Family — is highlighted in classroom activities for a two month time period when students participate in activities that reinforce the blocks. Classes read specific books and discuss the tenets. Students who exemplify the characteristics of the blocks are also rewarded with prizes from the school’s treasure chest.
