Walla Walla Public Schools wants you to know that if your family is dealing with issues of homelessness and are in transition, your school-aged children may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Act. If your family is living in a car, shelter, motel, out on the streets or doubled up with other people due to loss of housing or economic hardship we are here to help. Students who qualify may receive services like school meals, school supplies, ability to stay in their school of origin, immediate enrollment even if you are lacking the necessary documents or requirements, transportation to and from school, as well as other services comparable to those provided to other students.If you believe your children may be eligible, contact Mindy or Jaclyn at Berney, or call the District Liaison, Pam Clayton, at 509.526.6781 to find out what services and supports may be available.
Berney second graders, in partnership with the YMCA, will take swimming lessons in January. Please watch for permission slips and a schedule to arrive in backpack mail. Make sure to send a swimsuit, towel and a bag to carry wet clothes in on the day your student swims.
Please remember that students will be outside unless the temperature or the "real feel" dips below 15 degress fahrenheit. Make sure to send appropriate clothing for the weather conditions to school each day.
Bulldogs, it's not too early to think about submitting an amazing photo of yourself in your Berney gear. Making plans to go abroad? Pack your Berney shirt! Going to play frisbee golf at Ft. Walla? Wear your Berney shirt! Show us all of the things you do when you're not being awesome at school. Come and visit with Mrs. Davis for photo submission details.
Our 5th grade Girls Basketball team is game ready! If you would like to attend a game check out the schedule on the calendar page. Our concession stand is open for all home games, so bring some money for popcorn.
