MLK Day of Service
Bertram Elementary - January 17th, 2022
On January 17th, Bertram Elementary students participated in a variety of projects to give back to our community and to live out the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
PreK and Kindergarten
PreK and Kindergarten students brought in loose change to donate to the Joann Cole Mitte Memorial Library. Bertram Elementary PreK and Kindergarten students visit the library throughout the year for special programs and as a field trip experience for our youngest bulldogs. The Joan Mitte Library also offers our students an extensive summer reading program each year.
Our 1st Grade students wrote letters of appreciation to our cafeteria staff. Our cafeteria staff are amazing women who ensure that every child at Bertram has a warm breakfast and lunch each day!
Our second-grade students wrote letters of thanks to the veterans in our community. In second grade, students learn specifically about ways to actively practice good citizenship, including involvement in community service.
Bertram Elementary 3rd Grade students used the Day of Service to show love and appreciation for the elderly in our community. Students made Valentines for the residents of the Bertram Nursing Home.
Bertram 4th Grade students did several projects around campus to beautify the grounds. Students removed trash, cleaned up flower beds, and create rock art formations.
Bertram 5th Grade students learned about the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. They then created a sign to spread Dr. King's message of hope and equality that read "We Have a Dream!"
