Berkshire Elementary Ribbon Cutting to be Held Wednesday

Although Berkshire Elementary School in Dundalk was ready to open last September and students starting arriving in March, an official ribbon cutting was not held last year as a result of COVID

Now the ceremony will be held this Wednesday as BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams and Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski will join members of the Board of Education of Baltimore County and Baltimore County elected officials in officially cutting the ribbon on the new school.

This fall marks the first time the 618-seat, $51 million replacement school has opened to all students.

The ceremony will feature student performances and tours of the new school, which incorporates a two-story classroom wing, a single-story cafeteria/gymnasium wing linked by a central core of interwoven collaboration spaces, a “green” rooftop classroom garden, and a technology-rich media center.
