Serve-a-Thon 2017

Parent Volunteers Needed

We still need drivers for Kindergarten and Sixth Grade for Serve-a-Thon Day! If you can help, please contact Mrs Bromwell by emailing bbromwell@berkschristian.org.

Progress Toward Our Goal

We've got a good start toward our goal of sending out 3,000 sponsorship letters. So far 1,804 letters have been collected and mailed. Please contact Mrs Bromwell if you need more letters! There is plenty of time to be in the running for our three big prizes, awarded to the three families who submit the most letters.

News and Updates

Uniform Policy Reminder

As we head into warmer weather, we want to remind students of a few key dress code policies.

1. For girls in ALL GRADES, skirts and jumpers must meet the knee. Girls wearing shorter lengths will be asked to change and if a suitable pair of pants cannot be found in our Swap Closet, a parent will be called to bring an alternative outfit.

2. For students in ALL GRADES, sweatshirts worn during the school day must be solid color (no pattern, design, text, picture, or graphic) or must be BCS spirit wear. Sweatshirts, hoodies, etc that do not adhere to this guideline will be taken from the student and kept in the office until day's end.

3. To help you out, we are submitting another order for polos and spirit wear. The order form was attached to your Beat email this week, and can also be accessed here (you must access this file through a BCS email address).

Middle School Tutoring

One of our high school students offers tutoring every Monday from 3:00 - 4:45 for any middle school students who would like help with homework, studying, or organization. Any Monday that a 6th-8th grader that would like to stay please email attendance@berkschristian.org.

Re-Enrollment

Remember to re-enroll by March 31st if you want to pay the lowest re-enrollment price. Starting April 1st, prices will go up for re-enrollment. Also remember that all returning families (that's you!) who are interested in financial aid must apply for aid by April 30th. You can apply for aid here.
