Berkshire Learns

IMG_1454

Since the school opened in 1987, there has been a rich history of learning at Berkshire Pak Elementary.  We are a community of learners, and the purpose of this blog is to open some windows into the great learning that is taking place at this wonderful school.  The focus will be on student learning; however, the staff, including myself, are constantly learning as well.  Henry Ford said, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.  Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”  We agree with Socrates of old, “Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”

This winter, we have experienced a lot of snow, and right in our front entry is this beautiful winter display reminding us of our uniqueness.  “We are like snowflakes…all different in our own beautiful way.”  As I wonder the hallways and observe the great learning taking place, I am reminded of how we all learn in different ways and at different rates.  At Berkshire Park, we believe in “Empowering Children to achieve their personal best!”
