Berry Intermediate School is the Duke Energy School of the Week

Berry Intermediate School was chosen as Duke Energy's School of the Week (WKRC)

LEBANON, Ohio (WKRC) - Every week Local 12 and Duke Energy honors a school doing big things with its students.

Berry was recognized for the response by the teachers and students following the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Instead of participating in walkouts, the group at Berry banded together to perform acts of kindness.

In the sixth grade science class Thursday, students were learning about kinetic energy and where it lands on a roller coaster. They have a two-part investigation using foam tubing and marbles. It's just an example of how the school gets students involved and excited about learning.

Gracie says she likes her school because the supportive staff and kind teachers. "They just always have your back."

The teachers and staff are also working hard to make their temporary setup at the old junior high school feel like home this year while their permanent building is being renovated for the fifth and sixth grade students.

Duke Energy presented a $1,000 check to the school.
