Please contact Mr. Warner (by emailing pwarner@berkschristian.org) if you can help us!

For the first time this year, you have a say in choosing our Serve-a-Thon t-shirt color! Starting next week, three shirt choices will be announced and posted outside the office. For $.25, you can vote for your favorite. The winning color will be our t-shirt design for this year. Vote as many times as you like. Parents and teachers are welcome to vote as well.

Ready, Set, Go!
