BOE lays out end-of-school-year activities

BOE lays out end-of-school-year activities



As the end of the school year quickly approaches, the Board of Education wanted to share an update on school lunches and end-of-school-year activities and events for the middle school and elementary schools.

Breakfast and Lunch
Program Update:

The Breakfast and Lunch Program will continue to provide meals to all Berlin children 18 years or younger through June 29. Meals are provided Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 7 to 9 a.m. at Willard School. We recognize the need, as we are currently serving approximately 1,300 meals weekly, but regret that funding will not be available after June 30. If you are still in need of assistance, reach out to Berlin Social Service for guidance in locating other options that may be available.

McGee:

June 15: Grade 8 Awards Ceremony Video Release. 

June 16: Promotion Ceremony Video Release, Promotion Ceremony Motorcade at Berlin Lions fairgrounds and Memory Video Release. (Raindate is June 17.)

Be on the lookout for communication regarding the following transition events in June. 

Virtual Welcome & Tour: In an attempt to relieve transition jitters and help get students excited about middle school, we are producing a welcome video that shows important areas of McGee and school-wide activities/opportunities.

Tips and Advice: Teachers and students have compiled a list of tips and advice for starting middle school. These have been recorded and will be viewed during a live lesson before the end of the school year.

Pre-recorded Q&A: Your children have submitted great questions about middle school. Mrs. Stevenson and eighth grade ambassadors have pre-recorded answers to all of these questions and produced a video for viewing.

We are also planning school walk-throughs for Grade 6 and new students before the fall opening, pending Governor’s Guidelines.

Multiple Curbside Personal Item Pick-Ups have been communicated through the school’s messenger system and scheduled/implemented.

Once yearbooks are delivered, a curbside pick-up will be scheduled.

In addition, families will be allowed to pick up the purchased congratulation signs purchased by the school.

The Board of Education would like to thank all the administrators, teachers and parents that have been working hard to make these important transitions as special as possible during these times.
