As always at the Berkeley Township Elementary School, we are strongly encouraging our students to utilize their daily planners on a consistent basis to maximize their organizational skills. We believe staying organized is a major life skill and we greatly appreciate parent/guardian support in this endeavor. Please try to take time every evening to go through your child’s planner and be sure they are completing necessary assignments each day. Secondly, this is an easy way to communicate with your child’s teacher on a daily basis.
Finally, it was a pleasure to see so many parents at Back to School Night this year and always remember, when we work together, we can make a difference in your child’s life.

Back to School Night
Family Portrait Day
Sunday, Oct. 18th, 10am-12pm
The B.T.E.S. PTA will be sponsoring a Family Portrait on Sunday, October 18 2015. What a great way to preserve family memories. Cimino Photography will be offering a 10X13 portrait for only $10.00. You may order as many 10X13 portraits as you want. A $10.00 non-refundable, pre-paid deposit is required for each 10X13. Additional packages will also be available to order through Cimino Photography, including holiday cards.
You must schedule an appointment to hold your time slot on October 18th. This is on a first come/first serve basis so if you are interested, please complete the form below and return it with your $10.00 deposit for each 10X13 in an envelope marked “Portrait Day” to the PTA mailbox. Checks may be made payable to B.T.E.S. PTA. You will be contacted to arrange an exact time to arrive at the Dudley Park, Route 9 in Bayville. If you have any questions, please call 732-269-1166.
Without exception, only one designated classroom parent will be allowed into the building to help with costumes and to assist teachers with their parties. Please be aware when selecting costumes for school that children need to get into and out of them by themselves. Visibility and safety during the parade should also be considered. All costuming will be done after lunches. Some adjustments will be made to the lunch times to allow the children to prepare for the parade.
Children are not allowed to wear make-up, colored hair, or any part of their costumes to school. They will have time to get dressed after lunch.
The Berkeley Township School District offers an after school program to help students with academics, homework, and study skills on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. Operation Schoolhouse is located at 235 Magnolia Avenue, South Toms River. Parents need to sign students in on arrival and sign out when picking students up. Certified Berkeley Township teachers are available at no cost based on your child’s academic need. Dates in October are 13, 15, 19, 20, 22, 26, 29, 2015.
Some helpful tips are be sure your child gets a good night's sleep, eats properly the day of a test, and gets to school on time.
