Berney News, Events & Reminders

Yearbooks are on sale!

Please make sure you place your order by April 18th to receive a 2013-14 Bulldog yearbook. This year we opted for a sturdier binding that will hold together for many years and allows us a few more pages to fill.

Cost for each book is $12.00 if you place your order before the 18th. Late orders will be charged $14.00 and can only be accepted until April 30th. If you do not pre-order, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a yearbook at the end of the year since we only order a limited amount of extras.

Our yearbook is filled with class photos and group photos of all the extra curricular activites, plus hundreds of candids of fun events from all grade levels throughout the year. Watch for the order envelope in your students backpack and order yours today!

 

Miles Club is here

Miles club will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays during 1st-5th grade recess times. Bring your water bottles and wear your walking shoes to begin logging those miles!


MSP Testing schedule 2014

MSP Testing will begin on April 24. Please view the Principals Message at the bottom of our home page for details.

Parents, please make sure your child has adequate rest and a good breakfast on testing days. Also, try to avoid appointments that will pull them out of their testing session during this window of time.

Thank-you for your suppport!

Welcome to Berney Elementary

BE front resized for web

Berney School Hours are 8:15 a.m.-3:00 p.m. with the cafeteria opening at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast. For their safety, please do not have students arrive before 8:00 a.m. as there is not adequate supervision outside. Remember~every Wednesday we release at 2:00 p.m.

Please be extra careful traveling to and from school. Walkers, be sure to use the cross walks and side walks.  Student drop off and pick up areas have been expanded to the front of the school and continue around the building to the west side of School Ave. The parking lot west of Berney is an "enter only" lot for staff and visitors. For safety reasons, the bus lane/car exit area is not a student drop off and pick up area.

Directory Information Opt-out Form

We are proud of the things that we do here at school and will sometimes take pictures of our activities to share with the public. If you would prefer not to share your students images online or in print, please fill out a Directory Information Opt-out Form.
