Pick a clip? Thank you Ms. Georgiadis and the 'Kindness Club' for ways to display and remember our kindness towards others.

For students in gr 4-12: We stand silent to remember those that were killed during the Holocaust. We also stand silent to reflect on the survivors, the heroes that lived. Many who left their countries after World War II who settled around the world, many came to NJ and even to Bergen County. If we were to stand silent for every victim in the Holocaust we would stand for over 11 years! We stand to remember that prejudice can start small but turn into a great tragedy. #HolocaustRemembranceDay

In response to this week's display of hate & bias, the Office of Curriculum & Instruction compiled resources for parents. Swastikas, speech & other images that diminish a group are condemned. Go to: https://sites.google.com/wwrsd.org/publiccurriculumoffice for more information.
We remain grateful and positive...especially Mrs. Massaro, for creating Berkeley's Positivity Chain...here's a sneak peek until you can see it in person for Open House later this month.
Kindergarteners love to 'unlock' sounds and letters with Mrs. Houck!
