Grandparents' Day Celebration Rescheduled for Friday, April 1st!

Please save the date for our annual Grandparents' celebration on April 1st , 2022. Details will be shared in the Spring semester.

Law Enforcement Against Drug and Too Good for Drugs

At Bertram Elementary, we are supported by a full-time School Resource Officer through a partnership with BCISD and Bertram Police Department. In addition to safety and security, our School Resource Officer provides all Kindergarten through 5th Grade students with a 10-week course called Too Good for Drugs. Classes are held once a week during library rotations. The lessons taught are tailored to be developmentally appropriate. Lessons focus on making positive choices, refusing peer pressure, and gaining confidence.
