• Dear Berry Family, 

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Berry Middle School!  My staff and I are working hard this summer to lay the foundation for a successful year, and that foundation begins with EXCELLENT communication from our school to our families. So, below is everything I can think that you need to know that this time - a few dates and reminders that may be helpful: 

    • July 24 - JAG Welcome Packets mailed to all eligible students.
      • The packet contains the student's schedule, bus assignment, locker card, team invitation and more!
      • IMPORTANT: If there are still outstanding items (online registration, lease, deed, tDAP) that would prevent your student from receiving their packet, you would have recently received a green/blue reminder postcard in the mail.
      • If you have not heard from us via the green postcard, you are all set to receive your packet at this time!
    • August 1 - Fee payment opens to all students on myschoolfees.
    • August 1, 10:00 - 6:00 - Jag Welcome Day!
      • BRING YOUR WELCOME PACKET to school with you.
      • Walk your schedule, open your locker, pay your fees, meet staff members, sign up with PTO collect your pre-ordered school supply packs, ask questions about bus routes (and more!).
      • Did you receive a green/blue reminder postcard
        • If you supply or complete the requested item from the green/blue reminder postcard by Thursday, July 18, then your packet will be mailed on July 24.
        • If not, bring the card up to school on Welcome Day with the item you need to update and we will provide your student's Welcome Packet at that time.
      • Don't line up early - just come when you can!  Spend 5 mins or 2 hours, it's up to you!
    • August 2, 1:00 - 5:00 - Open School Hours
      • Need more time or can't make it to Welcome Day?  This time is for you.
    • August 5-7 - School and Offices CLOSED to students for District Institute Meeting teacher professional development. Teachers are in training meetings and the school is being prepared for students, so students are not allowed in the building during these days. 
    • August 8 - First Day of School!
    • August 19, 6:30 - 8:00 - 6th grade Open House / Meet the Teacher Night
    • August 20, 6:30 - 8:00 - 7th / 8th grade Open House / Meet the Teacher Night

    Can't make it to either Jag Welcome Day or Open School Hours? We will have staff and PTO helpers on the morning of August 8th dedicated to help all students transition. Don't worry - we've got them covered!

    I know this can be an overwhelming time, but we are here to patiently help you every step of the way. Please feel free to email me personally if you have any questions - crobbins@hoover.k12.al.us.

    It's great to be a Berry Jag - WELCOME!
