There will be a display of visual and performing arts including singing, dancing, and musical performances by Oak Grove students. Food trucks will be present for you to enjoy! The event is free, but a $5 donation per family to support the arts will be greatly appreciated. Please be sure to attend!


Parent Volunteers needed! We would like the parent community to support the district in putting together this fantastic show.

Dear Families,


An important reminder for families about Hero!


The Hero program is used by schools nationwide for recognizing stand-out student behavior. Hero will help us operate efficiently, and it will help us keep consistent policies running throughout the school. Hero will keep an accurate record of things like tardies, school event attendance, classroom participation, and positive student behavior. Hero also allows our staff to be more data driven.


In the simplest sense, Hero will help Bernal run more efficiently, which means that the biggest impact of the program will be that your child will spend more time in class. Many Hero schools have seen big changes in school climate, which means that that time will be safer and more productive, too.


Hero takes their responsibility to protect sensitive student information very seriously. Along with top of the line technical security, they have internal policies that put your child’s privacy first. It’s also important to note that Hero doesn’t store any SSNs or student health records, and that the data Hero collects is strictly behavioral.


At Bernal, your child’s privacy, security and safety are of the utmost importance to us. Because of this, we will work closely with Hero to ensure that the programs we put in place are not only FERPA compliant, but also compliant with all requirements unique to our state, our district, and our school. We’re extremely excited to bring Hero into Bernal and look forward to seeing the positive impact that it will have.
