Hello Byrd families,
The week following this one is Dr. Seuss Week! We will celebrate with a book related theme each day. Students are encouraged to dress up according to the daily theme. A flier went home with students last week that details the BES plan for Dr. Seuss week. We will also post the flier on the school website. Students took home a form for parents to sign up as guest readers on Friday, March 4th. You can also sign up to be a guest reader using the form posted on the Byrd website. We look forward to lots of Seuss fun the first week in March!
The flying Squirrels want to reward students for keeping up with their reading in and outside of school! This year BES will participate in the Go Nuts for Reading program. Each student at has received a bookmark to record eight books. Return completed bookmarks to your student’s teacher no later than Friday, March 25th. Students who complete the bookmark will receive a free ticket to the Flying Squirrels baseball game on Thursday, April 23rd. Families can purchase additional tickets at a discounted rate by completing the form on the bookmark and submitting the payment with the completed bookmark. Families can also buy tickets on the day of the game at the box office in front of the Diamond.
4th and 5th grade students in Reading Olympics took home an invitation for a special event based on the book A Snicker of Magic that will take place on Tuesday, March 8th, after school. Please see the invitation for more information. If students plan to attend, then please RSVP as soon as possible.
