  • 8th Grade Graduation Information!

    Posted by Kelly Sumrall on 1/8/2019


    Attention 8th-grade parents. Please note this is not a school-sponsored function; we are simply helping the organizers spread the word:

    As each of you knows, graduation is fast approaching. Following tradition, the parents of the eighth-grade students plan and host a graduation party on the evening of graduation. The Berwick Civic Center has already been booked for this event, but there is still lots of planning that needs to be done. For this reason, a meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, at 6:00 at Berwick
    Junior High School.

    In order for us to give our students a wonderful experience, everyone’s help is needed. Various committees have been established so that the work will not fall on just one person. What is involved with each committee will be discussed, and each of you will have a chance to volunteer your services to the committee of your choice. 
    Thank you in advance for all your help. We look forward to seeing you.

  • FEMA Disaster Fraud

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 2/7/2018

    If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has someone called and asked you to verify your FEMA registration?

    Multiple complaints have been filed by people who have been scammed by thieves pretending to be employees of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  These include survivors from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as victims of the California wildfires.

    • Victims have received phone calls asking them for personal information--even though they didn't apply for FEMA assistance.
    • When victims do try to apply for FEMA assistance, they discover that someone has already applied using their names because they receive a "verification error."
    • People claiming to be FEMA inspectors have been asking to gain entry to damaged homes. These individuals wear a shirt or jacket with the FEMA name, but they do not possess a FEMA photo ID badge.
    • Inspectors ask for money before starting an inspection. (Federal and state workers will never ask for or accept money.

    If you or someone you know may have fallen victim to or have knowledge of these types of frauds, visit the FEMA Disaster Fraud page for more information.
