Notes from Mrs. Bervert

Buffalos,

This week we met our newest Buffalos for Kindergarten Pre-Enrollment and we so enjoyed showing them all of the exciting things at BES. We also had field trips this past week for kindergarten, third grade and fifth grade and are certainly in field trip season. Our intermediate students completed state assessments and they worked hard. All students in grades K-6 will receive our districtwide Fastbridge screener in Language Arts and Math in the coming weeks. A few other pieces of news:

  • Lion King Jr. Coming May 5th- Our Drama Club is preparing for the production of The Lion King Jr. We can't wait to see the hard work of our Buffalos!


  • Donuts with Moms or Special Person- Help our PTO plan for this event by filling out the Google form below.


  • Field Day- Coming to BES on 5/25- Details listed below! If you'd like to take your students home early please out the Google form below. Shirt information is also provided.


  • Kona Ice on 5/4 in the PM- Our 6th graders will complete their yearly food truck project and one component of that project is that we all get to enjoy Kona Ice on Wednesday, May 4th. More information will be sent midweek regarding student prices for Kona Ice.


  • Thank You Office Team-This coming Wednesday we will celebrate Mrs. Tanya, Mrs. Carrie and Mrs. Laurie in the office. These ladies work tirelessly to ensure transportation is organized, lunches are covered and so many more things that allow our building to function. They are beloved by our Berryton staff.


  • Relocating- As we begin planning for the 22-23 academic year please email Mrs. Tanya (howbertt@usd450.net) if your child will not be returning to BES.

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.
