Week Four Celebrations- Grandparents Day Edition

Berryton Families,

This week I will be brief and share lots of photos of our Grandparents Day festivities. A few people I'd like to thank and publicly appreciate:

  • Our amazing office staff for managing the Google form that detailed which grandparents would be attending.
  • Our hardworking teachers for planning fun and educational activities for grandparents. They also spent lots of time making sure classrooms were warm and inviting.
  • Joy Baker and Jennifer Haverkamp spent oodles of time this week in our Book Fair.
  • Berryton United Methodist Church helped with the Book Fair and they acted as surrogate grandparent to many of our students.
  • Our PTO organized and prepared cookies, welcomed grandparents into the building, assisted with book fair, and did lots of other things to help the day go off without a hitch.
  • Our 6th graders that stepped up to be the leaders of this school and assisted with bringing around chairs and checking in on teachers.

This week we will wrap up our MAP testing and begin our Intramurals for students in grades five and six. Our PTO will meet on Tuesday night at 6:30, and we would love to have as many families joining as possible.

It's great to be a Berryton Buffalo,

Mrs. Bervert, Principal

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.
