SOME IMPORTANT REMINDERS TO FOLLOW

IMG_3135 (1).jpeg
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.
