Berks Christian School sponsors several children through Compassion International. The primary way we raise funds to support these children is through our monthly Dress Down Days. Students are permitted to "dress down" (out of uniform, but following core dress code guidelines) if they also bring at least $2 to help support our Compassion children. Our first Compassion Dress Down Day is Friday, September 15th.

Family Vehicle Numbers

In an effort to promote safety, accountability, and a streamlined process, we are instituting a Family Vehicle Number policy. Your family has been assigned a number and has been provided with a yellow card showing your number. Every time you pick up your child(ren), whether daily or only a few times during the year, you must show your yellow number card through the car window. Having the card on your dashboard does not allow for our dismissal staff to be able to see it. If someone other than you is picking up your child(ren) they must have your family’s number card in order to claim your child(ren). If you would like more than one copy of your yellow number card, contact the school office to request one.
