The 2016-17 school is well on its way and trustees at the BHEF have been busy reviewing grant applications submitted by teachers and administrators from all Berkeley Heights Schools. Grants will be awarded and announced in late November and we look forward to sharing this news with the community later in the year.
The goal of the BHEF, now in its 22st year, is to fund innovative technology and programs to help our children excel academically. In addition, these grants also provide new and meaningful resources that keep our school system competitive with neighboring districts and on a national level. We are proud to announce that we able to fund grants, programs and technology purchases of more than $43,000 last year, reaching every school in the district.
All of these programs would not be possible without the generous donations from the Berkeley Heights community. A special thank you to our Corporate Sponsors: Smith Chiropratic, Gabriele Fitness and Peak Medical. These local companies continue to partner with the Berkeley Heights Education Foundation, providing substantial financial support to our schools and community.

- January 20, 2017. Adult Social featuring New Jersey favorite band The Nerds.
- March 14, 2017 Annual Faculty Basketball Game our most popular event as students cheer on teachers, staff and administrators from every school in the district.
