  • 8th Grade Visits the Museum of Tolerance

    The 8th-grade class had the opportunity to visit the newly remodeled Museum of Tolerance this week. The museum was built in 1993 and is dedicated to issues of racism and prejudice around the world, focusing especially on the history of the Holocaust.

    Every student had the opportunity to explore powerful exhibits and share their reflections on complex current and historical social dilemmas. What an amazing opportunity this was for our students to consider what choices they will make as they prepare for high school, and to reflect on how Berkeley Hall continues to encourage students to be Responsible, Compassionate, Respectful, and Honest.

  • A Strong Year for BHS

    Dr. Gamrath addressed our community at a recent State of School presentation. In her assessment of the 2021-22 school year, she talked about all the ways our community has grown and adapted in this period. She was joined in the presentation by the leadership team, Sarah Colmaire, Dean of Academics, Doug Gibbs, Chief FInancial Officer, Karen Morse, Dean of Students, John Abdelnour, Director of Advancement, and Nathalie Miller, Director of Admissions. 

    “As we recognize BHS’s one hundred and eleventh year, there is much to celebrate, and as we look forward, there is much that excites us. Bottom line: The State of Berkeley Hall School is STRONG,” she told the community. 

    Dr. Gamrath also confirmed that all new dean positions have officially been filled. We previously announced that the Dean of Students role starting in the fall will be divided into two full-time roles: AHOS: programs and DEIB, and Director of Student Wellness. Our Dean of Academics role, in the meantime, will be divided into three positions: Assistant HOS for teaching and learning, as well as Lower Division Director, and Upper Division Director.

  • Many Ways to Mark AAPI Month

    The month of May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage (AAPI) Month. In 4th grade, students are learning more about the Asian countries and their traditions. Chinese shadow puppets are a lot of fun to make and students are writing a script to perform a Chinese theater show. They are also designing a version of Nirvana, the Asian-Indian Snakes and Ladders game. This game is the origin of the popular game, Chutes and Ladders.

    A Thailand Storytelling Cloth is similar to a tapestry that tells the story of the Hmong men who were driven from China. The Thai people preserved their history by making these cloths. Fourth grade is modifying the idea and preserving their own class history and all that they have learned this year. Students are looking forward to seeing where their study of Asian traditions takes them next.
