Celebrating the Holiday Season at Berryton

Berryton Families,

This is my 15th year in education, and I don't think anyone celebrates the holiday quite like we do at Berryton! A few celebrations that have occurred the past few weeks:

  • Craft Fair- Thanks to our Berryton families for coming out to support our Craft Fair! It was a huge success and we had a record number of booths!

  • 1st/2nd Holiday Concert- I have linked video from our holiday concert that featured our 1st and 2nd graders. We have so many talented musicians!

  • Spelling Bee- Take a look at the photos below to see our Spelling Bee champs and all of our students that participated in grades 4-6

  • Goods and Services Fair- Yesterday our 2nd graders had a project-based learning opportunity to sell goods and services with pretend money. They learned lots of information about supply and demand.

  • 12 Days of Holiday Cheer- Our staff have enjoyed fun theme days which is why some of our outfits have been a bit different. Here is the office staff feeling Merry and Bright!

It's Great to be a Berryton Buffalo,

Mrs. Bervert

Parking Updates

While Berryton has a limited amount of parking, we do ask for patrons to be mindful of those who require the Handicap Restricted Parking stalls. Please avoid these spaces unless you have a permit to use these designated parking stalls.

We also need to have parents who are using the drop off lane only park in the lane closest to the building. Please leave the lane closest to the road open for cars circulate in and out.

About Me

As an elementary principal I enjoy working collaboratively with staff members to support student learning. I am passionate about continuing to learn professionally, and building relationships with staff and students at Berryton Elementary. When I'm not serving at Berryton Elementary I am usually with my husband and two sons. We can be found at sporting events, cheering on Kansas State University, or just enjoying a movie at home.
