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 13th.


Your child will be bringing home an envelope from Zerbe Studios with information about school pictures, scheduled for Tuesday, October 1. Please note that students may wear their uniforms or dress up. Girls that choose to dress up may wear modest dress slacks. They may also wear dresses or skirts that are not tight and no higher than the top of the knee cap in length. Also, slits in skirts should be no higher than the top of the knee cap. Blouses should not be tight, sleeveless, low cut, or see through. Boys should not wear jewelry or shirts without collars (no T-shirts). Thanks for your cooperation.

New for this year, check out the BCS Prayer Matters blog - a place where you can receive encouragement and inspiration as you pray. Prayer is a critical part of the ministry of Berks Christian School, and every prayer offered is one that God can and will use to bring His kingdom here on earth. New blog posts are published weekly on Wednesdays. Take a look, feel free to share with others and most importantly, please join us in prayer!


Moms in Prayer will be meeting again this year, open to all moms, grandmoms or spiritual moms of BCS students. The first meeting will take place Tuesday, September 10th from 8-8:30 am in the music room. Please contact Carrie Warner (cwarner@berkschristian.org) with any questions. Hope to see you there!

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 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 GREEN 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 green number card, contact the school office to request one.




In an effort to promote safety, accountability, and a streamlined process, every family MUST use the orange car number card and line up BEHIND the buses.  Do not pass the buses.

If you would like more than one copy of your green number card, contact the school office to request one.
