New Scholarship Announcement

Scholarship

New Scholarship Announced!

The Berne Union Veterans Committee is excited to announce the creation of the “Mike Spires Community Service Scholarship.” Mike Spires was a military veteran who continued his commitment to service after his enlisted time ended. Mike was a great leader of our community and a huge supporter of anything and everything Berne Union.  To ensure his legacy, we have created this annual scholarship to be awarded to a Berne Union Senior who has exhibited the same qualities of Mike including: experience in community service and/or volunteerism as well as compassion towards others.

Scholarship Applications are available in the High School office, or can be picked up from Mrs. Downour, Mr. Saunders or Mr. Cupp. Deadline for returning applications is Wednesday October 12. Please help us get the word out so the most deserving candidate can be recognized at this year’s Veterans Assembly on Friday November, 11.

Exciting Changes Coming

Chromebook

There are quite a few exciting changes coming to Berne Union starting the upcoming 16-17 school year. We wanted to take a moment to share a few of them with you.

First, starting this year, Berne Union will be moving to a one-to-one program we are calling the EDGE program. Each student from K-12 that attends Berne Union will receive a Chromebook to use for their education. We believe this will greatly increase student achievement and have a huge impact in the classroom. More information about this program will be coming in the next few weeks.

Second, each student will now have access to Office 365 online in addition to Google Docs. This will allow our students to access the whole office suite online from their Chromebooks, phones, tablets, etc without having to download or install anything. If they want to download a version on their home computer, they will be able to, since each student will also have 5 licenses to install on personal devices. This can be done directly from the Office 365 web page.

Finally, we will be introducing a new learning management solution at Berne Union called Schoology. This will allow students to login to our new site and check homework, submit assignments, take tests/quizzes, communicate with their teachers and so much more. We will also be enabling parent access so they can view their child’s info and monitor their progress.

This is just a few of the things we have in store for next year. We hope this is as exciting for you as it is for us, but for now enjoy the rest of your Summer! We will see you in August!
