All BCS students will be tested by school nurses from the Exeter School District. All students in grades K-12 will have their vision tested. Students in K, 1, 2, 3, 7, and 11 will have their hearing tested. Students in grade 7 will also be examined for scoliosis. (This will involve students bending over and being asked to lift their shirt for the nurse so that the spine can be examined. Please alert your 7th grade student of this, if you think it will be concerning to him or her.) If your child fails his/her vision or hearing screening, a letter will be sent home to you indicating the failure. You must then follow up with a physician for further examination.



Make sure your grandparents save the date! November 21st, a half-day of school, is our annual Grandparents Day.

The day kicks off with a breakfast for students and grandparents to share. The day continues with activities for grandparents to share with their grand kids, and then ends with an all-school chapel event. Parents are welcome to attend the chapel as well. This is a half-day of school, so if grandparents and students want to spend the afternoon together, it's a great opportunity for them to go out for lunch after dismissal.

We need lots of volunteers to help provide breakfast, so if you can help, sign up here.

Grandparents will be receiving invitations in the mail, so if the grandparents in your family have moved, or if you're a new family to BCS this year, please email Miss. Klase rklase@berkschristian.org with the appropriate addresses.

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.

This past week, professionals from the Exeter Township Fire Department came to BCS to give our elementary students a lesson about fire safety and show off their fire truck and equipment.
