What’s Happening?

Good Afternoon Berkeley Parents,

We are in our final 2 weeks of school and this will be the last newsletter for the 2018-2019 school year.  We have 9 days of school left and we are excited to head into our summer break! We still have some expedited retakes for SOL Tests this week.  This week starts with an B Day on Monday, June 3rd, 2019.

SOL Tests this week:

Math Retakes, Civics Retakes, and 8th grade Science Retakes

8th Grade Stepping Up

The 8th grade stepping up program will be held on Monday, June 10th at 6:00 PM. Students should plan to arrive at JHS at 5:30 PM. Students will get tickets during the week of June 3rd in their homeroom classes. Each student will receive 4 tickets for family and guests. We encourage those students who will not use their entire allotment of tickets to give them to friends that may need additional. If there is a need for additional tickets, please email the principal with the request. Seating is limited based on capacity and additional tickets are not guaranteed. Students who receive disciplinary action leading up to this event will lose the privilege of attending this event.
