Mr. Jeffrey Berry
In all honesty, I've been very fortunate to be a teacher here at LES now for 18 "wonder-filled" years!!! Collectivily, I'm actually begining my 22nd year as an elementary school educator!!! Seems hard to believe but in all those years, I continue to approach each and everyday here at LES, with as much enthusiazm and energy I can muster, to help provide the very best educatioal environment for all of the students of LES, and not just ones I'm entrusted too each year. Today's students face a rigorous and challenging curriculum and "yes", that is an absolute fact, even in Kindergarten. The mirade of challenges and expectations they will encounter as they each begin their own educational journeys in Kindergarten and in life, is often a wonderful and equally dynamic place to be everyday. I can say with great confidence, something wonderful, more often than not, something wonderful happens everyday in that classroom!!! I myself and Mrs. Collins get the great privilage of often seeing occur it 1st hand. It is a tremendous joy and honor to be a teacher at LES!!!I'm so excited for the coming school year !!!
As I mentioned, I am beginning my 19th year of Kindergarten here in Lawrenceville. I also taught Kindergarten in Highland Park, NJ for two years and I started my trip "back to the classroom" teaching third grade in Hopewell, NJ. When I say I love teaching young people, I truly mean it !!! Short of being a husband to my wife Jennifer (20 years this past December), who is a successfullocal real estate agent and a great Mom to our three beautiful daughters Taylor/26, and Grace/18, and Ella/17, being a Kindergarten teacher here at LES has been one of my greatest joys in my 19 years as an ambassador of this very special little school. We live in Yardley, Pa and have two indepentent but sweet cats named Gus and Henley as well astwo wonderful and playful dogs named Finnigan and Henry. Yes, its often a bit of a zoo at our house, but I would not change a single thing if given the choice at the risk of losing what I already have...more Blessings than I can count!! I’m also, just to be clear, a very big NY Giants fan! Let's hope the 2019 scampaign is better than 2018.
Mrs. Collins is also a huge part of our class and she is wonderful!!! She loves kids and has been my Teaching. Assistant now for about four years now. We know its going to be an extrodinary school year for all !!!
Don't blink, you might miss something!!
My very best regards,
Please call telsafe and let us know you child will not be in school. If you know your child is going to be out, please send me an email.
If you plan to pick up your child that normally rides the bus you must send in a written note or contact the office. Do not rely on your child to tell us this information, because he or she may become confused and relay the information incorrectly. If no written note or phone call is received, your child will be sent home by his/her usual method of transportation.
Your child will have a Home/School folder. Please empty your child’s work and information each evening. Please send in all notices, lunch money, absentee notes, bus notes, etc. in the folder. We check folders daily J We do not have a chance to check backpacks L
Lunch is daily from 12:55-1:40 pm in the cafeteria. Please send in your child’s lunch money in a small plastic baggie labeled with your child’s name and amount enclosed. I have found that baggies labeled at home with permanent marker or masking tape work better than envelopes.
We will have a small snack each day. Please send in a small healthy snack and drink for your child. PLEASE let me know if your child has any food allergies.
Every Friday is “FUN FRIDAY!” Students will be able to bring in their share on this day.
