Berkshire 1st Graders Visit High School Advisory Class for Intergrade Connectedness and Food Drive Promotion!


The Berkshire Local Schools promotes peer-to-peer opportunities where students at various grade levels can interact with one another in order to promote active connectedness and to learn from one another. Such was the case recently, where first grade students at Berkshire Elementary School visited the High Schools’ Advisory classes to promote the ongoing food drive which is taking place throughout the school district. Each elementary student partnered with a High School Student Council representative and performed a presentation to help advance the worthy cause of obtaining non-perishable items to help those in need this upcoming holiday season. First grade students developed confidence during their presentations along with public speaking skills and communication. The High School Advisory class were active listeners, and truly benefitted from the time of aligning with students from the elementary school. In all, the food drive is ongoing at the Elementary School, and with assistance from the High School students, truly makes this a cause worth sharing for the holiday season. See the website, or visit the main offices to make a donation of a non-perishable or canned item to support this year’s holiday food drive!
