Notes from Mrs. Bervert

Buffalos,

We are so fortunate to have the partnership of the Shawnee Heights Foundation in supporting our staff and students. This group organizes the selling of the Major Saver cards for all Shawnee Heights schools and this year Berryton Elementary made over $2000 in funds that will go directly towards student experiences. One example of this is the archery unit Mrs. Robertson was able to fund thanks to both the PTO and the Shawnee Heights foundation funds. Our intermediate students have loved practicing their archery skills. A few reminders:


  • No School on Monday- Monday will be spend in professional learning in the AM and meeting our newest Buffalos in the afternoon and weekend. We are so excited to welcome more families into the BESt community.


  • National Librarian Day- We will celebrate Mrs. Joy Baker, School Librarian on Tuesday, April 19th. Mrs. Baker is passionate about providing each child with books that match their interests and she works tirelessly at getting books into kids hands. We are better because of her service.


  • 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.


  • Camp Invention- Coming to BES June 13-17- Interested in having your child attend? Sign Up on the form below.


  • Student Information Form- We value input from parents as we create class lists for the 22-23 academic year. Check out the form below if you'd like to share information with BES regarding your child's specific needs.


Have an amazing weekend!

Mrs. Bervert

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.
