Student Council is sponsoring the PASTA FOR PENNIES fundraiser to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All students can bring in any type of coins or bills to contribute to their ADVISORY class. All proceeds go to benefit local Virginia children with Leukemia and their families. The classroom that earns the most money for this wonderful organization gets a free lunch for their classroom from the Olive Garden.
You can also give ON-LINE at http://events.lls.org/pages/va/BerkeleyMiddleSchool-2017 and scroll down on the left side and type in your student’s ADVISORY teacher in the CLASSROOM search box
You can click here and the information is under 2017-2018 Course Registration.

Starting January 18th, students will have the opportunity to be a part of the Berkeley Step Team, the “Sophisticated Steppers.” The step team will be open to boys and girls, in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade! It involves a lot of precision and instills discipline and creativity
The Berkeley Theatre team had a wonderful time at the theatre conference the weekend of October 28-30, 2016. They won a Silver award for their one-act play, I Remember. The students had an opportunity to take workshops from college professors and professionals in Stage Combat, Improvisation, Auditioning for Commercials and Film, Musical Theatre, and Dance. Students met, Enrique Brown, a dancer who starred on Broadway in The Little Mermaid and began his career as a professional ballet dancer. They spent time with the theatre teams from all around the state including Toano and Hornsby and became great friends (exchanging Snapchat and Instagram accounts). Also, two of our students were recognized with outstanding acting awards. Nia Mucher was awarded Best Actress and Ryan Holcomb was given the distinction of All-Star Cast. Congratulations to our awesome theatre students!
