Summer 2024

Tuesday, May 21st was the last day of school in our school district, and on behalf of everyone on the administrative team, thank you for your help and cooperation in making this school year safe and successful. The final day of the 2023-2024 school year was made even more fun with the help of the PTO which hosted its annual Fun Day, including inflatables, a bubble machine, snow cones and more! Field Day also took place with our 4 graders taking a final lap around the stadium track signifying their successful advancement to the fifth grade. Thank you, PTO, and great job to everyone!

Congratulations Class of 2024!

On behalf of everyone in our Badger Family, please join me in congratulating the graduating senior class of 2024, on the occasion of their commencement, which took place this past Sunday at Berkshire High School. Such an event marks a significant milestone in the lives of our seniors, and this particular class certainly demonstrated a significant sense of school spirit, Badger pride, and accomplishment. As we heard in various remarks from individuals, students and staff alike, graduation represents a launching pad to future endeavors. The Berkshire Local Schools administration wishes all the best to the Class of 2024 and encourages each of its members to passionately pursue their individual goals.

Strategic Planning Committee Rolls On!

Our Strategic Planning Committee convened once again this past week to consider the areas-of-focus for the Berkshire Local Schools, and which will transition into our future goals. Before the end of the month, once again, these volunteers will meet to consider the mission and vision of the Berkshire Schools. These elements of strategic planning, in addition to the proposed core values that have been created and shared through survey, are steadily emerging as a community-inspired and foundation for the Berkshire Local Schools. I thank everyone for their involvement.
