Monday morning, bright and early, there will be excited teachers waiting for equally excited children at Bertram Elementary. We have a wonderful school and staff, and the whole community supports them. Please keep in mind that there are children who cannot afford school supplies. To this end, every year many donate money to the school for supplies and anything else the children need.
