    Posted by Lauren Matte on 3/12/2021

    The Berwick Elementary BETA Club is excited to host Kindness Week from Monday, March 14 – Friday, March 19.  Throughout the week, we will complete a variety of activities.  We will also celebrate with the following theme days.

    Monday - Hats off to those who sprinkle kindness at home. Students may wear a hat with school uniform bottoms. 

    Tuesday - Let's team up and sprinkle kindness at school. Students may wear a sports shirt or jersey with school uniform bottoms. 

    Wednesday - We're so lucky to be surrounded by kind people. Students may wear a green/ St. Patrick’s Day shirt with school uniform bottoms or jeans. 

    Thursday - We "can" sprinkle kindness in our community. Students may bring a canned good or two to donate to St. Mary Outreach. If a student is not taking a picture with the Easter Bunny but donates a canned good, he/she may wear jeans and a spirit shirt or uniform shirt. No picture with the Easter Bunny or no canned good, please wear regular uniform.

    Friday - Panthers sprinkle kindness everywhere.        Students return the optional family donut project.  Wear regular uniforms. 

    Thank You For Joining Us In Our Celebration Of Kindness!

  • Birthday treats this year

    Posted by Lauren Matte on 9/3/2020

    Starting this year, parents will not be able to bring homemade treats for students' birthdays. You may still bring cupcakes, but they must be store bought. Also the seal cannot be broken. If we reveive any treats that are homemade, your child will not be able to share with classmates and will bring them home. While this is not the best news, we must do what is best to protect the health of all our children. Thank you for understanding.

  • Scammers Cash in during the COVID Pandemic

    Posted by Lee Ann Hepler on 3/24/2021 12:00:00 PM

    It has been over a year since COVID-19 made its first appearance in our area. In response to the virus, we have adapted to new daily routines to help stay safe and healthykeep your distance, wear a mask, and wash your handsA few months ago, several vaccines became available, and the scammers of the world saw an opportunity. Because of these quick-thinking scammers, our new daily routines should also include keeping a watchful eye on our bank accounts and personal information and making smart decision when it comes to sharing personal information.  


    Man holding laptop.  “Fraudsters are always looking to take advantage of significant world events. The COVID-19 pandemic and its corresponding rapid digital acceleration brought about by stay-at-home orders is a global event unrivaled in the online age,” said Shai Cohen, senior vice president of Global Fraud Solutions at TransUnion 


    According to Colleen Tressler, the scammers’ newest attempt to swindle your personal information involves sending phony vaccine surveys. Ms. Tressler is with the FTC’s Division of Consumer and Business Education and in her article, she states that these opportunistic scammers are sending emails and text messages with links to surveys. These surveys appear to be legitimate, but it is all an elaborate ruse to steal your personal data. Her advice to avoid being scammed is simple 

    • Do not click on any links or open attachments.  
    • Do not call or use the number in the email or text.  
    • Do not give out your banking account, credit card, or personal information.  
    • Report scams to the FTC at  

    In the same way that we are vigilant in protecting our health, we must also be vigilant in protecting our financial and personal information. Just like viruses, scammers are out there looking for a weak spot to capitalize on – inoculate yourself against these scammers by keeping your information private.
