Miss Troup Outstanding Teen and Mini Pearls


Jessica Roberts, Miss Troup County’s Outstanding Teen, was recently a guest of Berta’s Mini Pearls, a mentoring program for students in grades K-2. A 10th grader st Columbus’ Fine Arts High School, Jessica performed a classical ballet en pointe to music from The Black Panther. She showed the girls how to walk and hold up their shoulders, and talked to them about bringing a burst of light into the room when they walked in. Following the performance, the Mini Pearls enjoyed a tea party in the school's dining room. And they all got to try on Jessica’s crown!

Students at Berta Weathersbee Elementary will stay and warm this winter thanks to the generous donation of a community member. Cathy Gaines recently donated $2,500 worth of winter coats and jackets to students in need at the school. Thank you so much for your generous gift!

Awesome Volunteer!


Ms. Hadden’s first graders love their First Presbyterian volunteer, Mrs. Sally Johnson, who comes to Berta Weathersbee Elementary School  twice weekly to provide academic support for students as a retired teacher. The children all love Mrs. Johnson, and this week she generously gifted the classroom with a big stack of new books from the Scholastic Book Fair. Thank you Mrs. Johnson!

Jar of Words


Berta Weathersbee Elementary School is feeling the love - the love of words! Students who check out books this week get a chance to use their estimation skills and guess the number of message hearts in a special jar of words. The student with the best guess at the the end of the week will get the whole jar of candy. Reading is sweet and at Berta we are sharing the love of good books!

3rd Annual Real Men Read


Students at Berta Weathersbee Elementary School were recently treated to special guest readers in their classrooms. Seventeen community volunteers, including LaGrange mayor Jim Thornton and several school board members, volunteered to read as part of the third annual Real Men Read initiative. Each man was assigned to a classroom where they read a story and shared with the students their own personal reading history. The men also told the students how reading impacts them now and how they utilize reading in their careers. A special thank you goes out to all the LaGrange men who supported this event!


Mini Pearls


Berta Weathersbee Elementary School recently inducted 13 kindergarten, first and second grade students into Mini Pearls, a mentoring program for girls. The goal of Mini Pearls is to make sure that girls believe in themselves, love who they are, and know where they are going. In order to achieve this goal, the program instills values that will affect a young girl’s future and most importantly influence her lifestyle. It is hoped that these young ladies will eventually transition into a PEARL which is a Poised, Elegant, And Responsible Leader.
