Berryhill American Heritage Month Newsletter: Week 1


What started at the turn of the century as an effort to gain a day of recognition for the significant contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S., has resulted in a whole month being designated for that purpose

Berryhill Public Schools would like to take this opportunity to highlight some of Native American families whose ancestors have made long standing contributions to our Berryhill community.  

Please enjoy our Berryhill Native American Heritage Month Newsletter: Week 2,  produced by our Indian Education (Title VI and JOM) parent committees!
