Principal's Message *

August 2023

Dear Berylwood Families,

The beginning of the school year is quickly approaching. At Berylwood Elementary School, we look forward to meeting our new families and renewing acquaintances. Our teachers are energized and are excitedly preparing their classrooms and lessons. The staff is setting up programs and plans for the new school year we hope you will enjoy. To provide a quality education for our students, it takes teamwork and you are part of our team! Come join in the fun of making a difference at our school for our students. We need you! Our children reap the benefits of our team approach and this approach contributes to their academic and social success.

We are currently in the middle of our Measure X Bond Classroom Modernization project. Several of our buildings have been updated. In these rooms you will see new flooring, new whiteboards and new coverings on the walls just to name a few things. This school year we will be getting new student and teacher furniture as well.
