Happy Veteran's Day!
Berea Middle School is grateful to our veterans and active military every day of the year; however, it would be our privilege to take a moment to publicly recognize these brave men and women, in observance of Veteran’s Day.
ACE Awards Nominations Now Open!
The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character. It is an annual award given to 68 male and female students from each of the 34 Greenville County middle and high schools. This award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process, established by Greenville County school counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, church or school.
If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please complete and submit this nomination form or go on-line to www.c4caceawards.com. All nominations must be submitted by January 29, 2016. An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County. All ACE award recipients will be recognized at the ACE Awards ceremony in the spring.
Individual Graduation Plans
The State of South Carolina requires that every 8th grader participate in an Individual Graduation Plan conference (IGP). Along with parents/guardians, every 8th grader will meet during the year with a school counselor to select a career cluster and discuss high school plans and high school graduation requirements.
If parents did not schedule a conference at open house, they may do so by clicking here for a link to the sign-up page.
Parents will be mailed an invitation with a date and time. As the conference day approaches, guidance staff will call parents to remind them of the meeting and the student will receive a reminder notice to bring home. The guidance staff look forward to meeting with parents and their student for this important conference. Parents should call the school counseling office (355-1711) if they have any questions.
