Dear Parents,
 
The Berkeley Hills faculty and staff would like to thank all the parents who coordinated, decorated, donated, and cooked for the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon last week. We were blessed by the delicious food and encouraging words. We truly appreciate ALL of you!
Sunday, November 11, is Veterans Day. Each morning this week, special thoughts and information about this important holiday will be shared during morning announcements.  On Friday, students will spend time remembering and praying for these wonderful 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.
Congratulations to our 6th grade winners Micah Jabbour (1st place), Hannah Kreigline, (2nd place) and Davis Gray (3rd place). Our 5th grade winners Brooklyn Pearson (1st place), Lila Cook and Mia Goetz (tied second place). Our fourth grade winners Nina Oliver (1st place), Wyatt Gray (2nd place), and Emily Johnson (3rd place) at the Berkeley Hills Spelling Bee Chapel.  They will represent Berkeley Hills at the ACSI spelling bee competition in Johnstown.

Thank you for a great job to all of our participants in our Spelling Bee Club. We are proud of your hard work and dedication! A special thank you to Ms. Donahugh for coaching the Berkeley Hills team.  Well done, all!
