Look for a weekly update here on what the PTO has been up to lately!

The PTO (Parent/Teacher Organization) had our very first meeting on Monday, Sept. 24th. Eight parents attended and discussed the group’s purpose, leadership structure, and programs. We are excited to come alongside the teachers and support them in their very important work of teaching our kids! Not everyone could make it to the meeting, but we will be sending out the minutes each month to keep everyone up to date with what is going on. If you would like to be included on those emails, send a message to Corrie Mast cmast@berkschristian.org and she will get you on the list.


We are thrilled to announce that our Homecoming event raised $6,000 for BCS this year. The event was highlighted by our auction and our kids activities such as pop the balloon, pumpkin painting, voting for a teacher to be pie'd (Mr. Smither won/lost). The day ended with our traditional alumni volleyball game.. Thanks to our many donors and volunteers for making this day a huge success.
