Dear Berkeley Hills families,

Today is Veterans Day. Each morning this week, special thoughts about this important holiday will be shared during morning announcements. And, throughout the week, students will spend time remembering and praying for these amazing heroes. Because of their service, we all have the awesome privilege to live in this free nation under God! Please set aside time to pray for our veterans and discuss this important day with your family.

We are excited to see you on Thursday at Family Night (6:00-7:30 pm) . It will be a fabulous and fun evening that will include classroom visits, hands-on STEM family activities with our Warrior Leadership Team and special area teachers, the book fair, bake sale to benefit the Berkeley Hills garden, and Chick-fil-A for dinner at 5:30 pm (pre-orders only)

Blessings,
Mrs. Hyland
