Veterans Day

Our 4th and 54th grade students have been preparing an amazing performance for Veterans Day. We invite you to join us in the Bertram Cafeteria Friday, November 10th at 8:30 am. Veterans are invited to wear their regalia for students to see and experience! We are grateful for our Veterans.

We will be posting pictures of our Veterans on our school webpage over the next few weeks. If you have a Veteran's photo you would like to submit please email it to

Attendance Matters

Bertram's Attendance Tracking

Bertram's ADA for this past week was 91.85%

ADA stands for Average Daily Attendance and is defined as the total days of student attendance divided by the total days of instruction. "98 IS Great!", so 98% is our goal! We recognize that illnesses and events take place that necesitate absences, however, we do encourage every student to be in school every day he/she is able. Let's work toward 98%!

Character Parade

On Tuesday, October 31st we will have a Book Character Parade. Students can dress as their favorite book character and we encourage students to carry a copy of the published book with them. Don't own the book - no worries there are lots of choices in the library!

Costumes must be school appropriate and no inflatable costumes or masks are permitted.

Adventure Dash

Thank you for your understanding as we had to reschedule our Dash and Band Parties due to inclement weather. As soon as we have confirmed our rescheduled date we will share that with you.
