Berwick Parent Community

A Note from the President:
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are poised for an exciting time here on the hilltop as we welcome Jim Hamilton as Berwick’s 54th Head of School. The Berwick Parent Community (BPC) is our parent-governed organization here on campus, representing all families with children in grades Pre-K through 12. Our objective is to support and enhance the education of all Berwick students through communication, connection, and fundraising.

In an effort to bring people together, we host coffee gatherings on campus and evening socials off campus; we bring outside speakers to the School in areas of interest to our community; and we sponsor an array of student activities and events including ice cream socials, coffeehouses, and off-campus trips. We support our faculty and staff through the BPC Grant Program, which provides items ranging from musical instruments and speakers, to robotics and innovative classroom technology.

The BPC funds all of its own programming through three major fundraising events during the year - the annual Golf Classic in the fall, the online auction in the winter, and the Community Benefit in the spring. All events are a great way for our community to come together in a fun setting, while also helping to raise significant funds for the School.

We encourage you to become an active member of the BPC, to get involved, and to get connected. Please join us for BPC General Meetings scheduled throughout the year (check out the calendar for specific dates), come to a coffee, or contact anyone on the BPC Board for more information on how you can get involved. Wishing everyone a happyy and productive school year!
