It’s hard to believe that it is almost time for the 2017-18 school year to begin. I am looking forward to having students return to school in September. I hope you have had an enjoyable summer with family and friends. Whether you are a new student, an incoming freshman, or a returning student/family, we look forward to you being a part of our Berlin High School family and hope you become involved in our school. I encourage every student and parent to embrace the opportunity to make this a great school year.
Teachers and administrators have been busy over the summer preparing for the 2017-18 school year. Teachers and administrators have participated in professional development to improve the instructional opportunities of our students. This year, teachers and principals will continue refining “Grading for Learning” and aligning our instruction to standards with our curriculum, and will continue with Berlin PRIDE. Researchers predict that today’s students will have 10-14 different jobs by the time they are 40 years old. Students are heading into a workforce where the skills of listening, problem solving, communicating, and collaborating with co-workers located around the world, will be essential to compete in an ever-increasingly global economy. In addition, the amount of technical information in the world continues to grow at a rapid pace. Integration of technology into schools is an essential and inevitable part of today’s society. Students must learn and master how to access information, synthesize, and evaluate it.
Our #1 goal is to improve student learning. So regardless of where our students begin the year, we want to help them advance their critical thinking, knowledge, skills, and ability to problem solve. If at any time you have a question about what is occurring in your student’s class, please contact your student’s teacher.
Our custodians and maintenance staff have done an excellent job in cleaning and preparing the building and grounds for the return of students. Our doors are always open, stop in and say hello to a teacher, a cook, a custodian, a member of our office staff, they are all here to make our school a positive learning environment for your child.
Remember: “Together We Can”, Berlin Pride
