Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Welcome Back! It is with great pleasure that I welcome all students to a new school year at Berkeley Elementary! For those of you who have not met me, my name is Mr. Scott Orth and I am the new principal of Berkeley. In just the short amount of time I have been here, I have been impressed with the commitment that the entire community has in seeing our students succeed. It is clear that at Berkeley, everyone works together to make sure that all students are successful. We look for your guidance in helping to reinforce both academic and behavior expectations that we put in place. Together, we will continue to accomplish great things. Already this year, there are positive changes to Berkeley. The most significant change is our remodeled office which will provide more space and allow us to safely monitor visitors entering the building. Please support us as we visit our safety procedures and, if needed, make the necessary changes for what is best for the Berkeley students, staff, and entire community. As the new school year quickly approaches, we are preparing for students. Teachers are working diligently to prepare lessons and classrooms so they are ready for students on August 13! If you have any questions, we are here to help. Please call or come by if you need anything. Again, I welcome all new and returning students as they join The Berkeley Team. If anyone asks, we are not only Berkeley, we are THE Berkeley Beavers.
