Principal’s Message

During the month of May, the PTO hosted a number of fundraisers in which the month raised went straight to the students of Berea. Berea’s PTO continues to be an important member of our community.  I would like to thank all PTO members for their continuing support throughout this year.  Our PTO exemplifies the spirit of generosity.  I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our PTO executive board members.  I encourage all parents of our Berea community to join the PTO in September.


This school year brought many difficult situations and the faculty and staff rose to every occasion and overcame every obstacle.  A big “thank you” must go out to the entire faculty and staff of Berea.  Your hard work and dedication to the success of our students is unparalleled.  I applaud your professionalism and look forward to great achievements next year.


This was a great school year with many great accomplishments under the most difficult of circumstances.  Student learning and success are always our focus and we are able to achieve that by everyone working together.  I am thankful for parents, teachers, paraprofessionals, office staff, and custodians who see the many teachable moments we have with students and …they teach.


The end-of-year schedule is listed below.  There will be early dismissals on June 22, 23, 24 with pick-ups being dismissed at 12:00 pm and bus students at 12:10 pm.  June 25 is the last day of school.  That day will be a 10:30 am dismissal.  Our 5th grade Moving Up ceremonies will be on June 18.  A separate letter to fifth-grade families will go home with the details.


June has some important dates to remember:  

  • June 7 – Grade 4 Science Written Exam
  • June 14 – Flag Day Ceremony
  • June 18 – 5th Grade Moving Up Ceremonies – separate letter with the schedule to families
  • June 21 – Last Full Day of School
