“The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.”

—B.B. King


We salute our School Board!!

The Illinois Association of School Boards has proclaimed November 15, 2016 as “School Board Members Day" with the theme of “Leadership Starts Here!”  We recognize that leadership for our community, for our schools, and for our future begins with the work of our locally-elected school board members.  The dedicated leaders of the Dolton School District 149 Board are Darlene Gray Everett, President, Lolita Crisler-Liggons, Vice President, Bertha Jolly, Secretary, Pamela Eldridge, Member, Rayya Ghani, Member, Kim Y. Knight-Anderson, Member and Wilbur Tillman, Member. 

On behalf of the students and faculty at Berger-Vandenberg School we would like to say “THANK YOU!” to our courageous leaders!!  Our school board makes it possible for the students at Berger-Vandenberg to have bus service, breakfast, lunch and a healthy snack at no cost to our families.  Our students also benefit from the school board’s vision by participating in our Aim High before school tutoring program and having access to online academic programs such as Stride Academy and the WIN Program.  Thanks to the school board, our teachers are able to have memberships to online resources such as Flocabulary, Reading A-Z and Brain Pop.  Those tools are valuable resources in the classroom. 

We truly thank you for your dedication to the students and faculty at Berger-Vandenberg School. 

Yours in Education,

Ms. Gabrielle Herndon
