Welcome to PUESD!

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to Berry Creek School!  I am excited to be a new member of the Pioneer Union Elementary School Team.  Specifically, I look forward to working with the staff, students and the community of Berry Creek in order to tackle the social, economic and cultural issues associated with educating our students.  The staff and the Board of Trustees take pride in helping your children to grow academically, socially and emotionally.  We look forward to integrating the latest educational programs i.e. Common Core Standards, Smarter Balanced Assessments, Technological Skills and Career Connected Instruction in order to prepare your student for future successes in life.


We believe that the best learning climate is one in which parents, children and staff work cooperatively.  This handbook will help you learn more about the school and notify you in advance of important dates and events.


Parents are encouraged to visit their child’s classroom at any time.  Conferences with either teachers or other school staff members should be by appointment.  For the safety and protection of all students, visitors must check in at the office before entering the classrooms.  You may call the school at any time and leave a message for your child’s teacher. If you have any questions or concerns about programs, practices or procedures please do not hesitate to call me.


We will strive to make school academically productive, interesting and inspiring!
