The Berg Bulletin
From the Desk of Principal Lecoe
It is hard to believe we have less than 20 days of school left. As we work with students on learning the essential standards and assessing, reviewing and enriching those that have already been taught, it is amazing to see and hear the progress the students have made throughout this school year. This has been our closest to "normal" school year in two years! With online school beginning in March of 2020 and then starting school last year in hybrid, it has been wonderful to have the students at school face to face everyday this year. As we do see some effects of the "not normal" time, we will continue to work with our students to provide Success for All.
I want to take this time to thank our families for working with us this year to help each and every student be successful. We love having your child at our school and look forward to watching them continue to grow in the years to come!

Mr. Ascheman, May 2022
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Being mentally healthy is an essential component of our whole health, and we have a variety of practitioners in our region who are able to support people in their journey towards increasing their mental health. Our school social workers, school psychologists, and school counselors can provide a list of these resources if you are interested.
This month we will continue learning about the Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) competency of responsible decision making. Our lessons will focus on themes of personal safety, solving problems, recognizing the size of problems, understanding the positive and negative consequences of choices, and recognizing when to ask for help. We will also be learning about summer safety skills.
The Dickinson Middle School 8th grade advanced drumming students will be performing at Berg on May 4th. We are so excited and can't wait to listen and see them in action!
