Berkeley Public Schools Fund

Community Block Party

Our Community Block Party brings together hundreds of families, educators, local leaders, and proud Berkeleyans to celebrate BUSD student excellence: live performances, artwork and activities demonstrate how BUSD students are learning to thrive in school and in life! It’s our mission come to life: Championing equitable public schools for students, families and our community.

Thank You To Everyone Who Participated in Our 2023 Community Block Party!
