urgent lunch parents.jpg

Our elementary lunch periods depend on parent volunteers. Teachers get a break over lunchtime, sometimes their only break of the day! To supervise lunch periods, we rely on parents who wipe down the tables before lunch begins, serve food, help students clean up, and then supervise the afternoon recess.

If you have free time in your week, will you consider being a Lunch/Recess Parent this year? Timing is approximately 11:00 until 12:30. Current clearances are required, and we are happy to help you acquire them. If you have a child younger than school age, you are welcome to bring him or her along. Commitment can be once a week, or more often! We need two parents per day, so pick a friend and sign up together! Contact Miss Klase, rklase@berkschristian.org for more details and to sign up.

We are very excited about producing Mary Poppins with BCS and WCA this year! The show will be April 4th-6th. The mandatory all cast members information meeting is on Tuesday, February 5th at 6:30 pm and then all practices starting February 11th. We practice Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesday practices are only for a few weeks right before the show. Most roles will not have to be at practice everyday. We will send a schedule every two weeks letting you know when your character has to be at practice.

choreographer wanted

In the months leading up to Mary Poppins we will need help with various roles. The first big role we need is a choreographer. If you or anyone you know has choreography experience please email Rebekah Klase.

PARENT PARTICIPATION IN SELLING CONCESSIONS

Needed Dates! 1/18 & 1/25

We are excited for BCS Basketball Concessions! This is a great way for Athletic Boosters to make money throughout basketball season.

Each basketball family is required to sign up for 2 games.

Should you choose to not sign up you will be charged $20 per game as we will need to pay a staff member. For each time slot we are looking for two adults and one student, if possible, but definitely the two adults. You will be responsible for set up, serving during the game, and clean up.

We also ask that each time you serve that you bring something to sell (pizza, soup, sloppy joe, walking taco, etc.). Please put what you are bringing in the comment section so that we can include it on the price list.

9th-12th graders this is a great way to get service hours and support the basketball teams!
