Good evening Byrd family,
We hope you had a wonderful spring break.
Everyone is invited to school this Tuesday evening from 6-7 pm for the 2017 Byrd Science Fair! We hope you will be able to come join us, and learn along with our students on this night!
This Thursday is kindergarten registration. Families can register students for next year’s kindergarten from 8 am to 4pm. More information is posted on our school website, as well as a link to complete the paperwork ahead of time if families would like. Parents should attend with children. Students enrolled in the Byrd preschool program do not need to register students on Thursday, as they are already in the school system.
Also, the Junior Master Gardners group will meet on Thursday after school.
Thank you to everyone for making the Go Nutz For Reading program a big success. Those who earned free tickets to the Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball game on Friday, April 21, as well as those who ordered baseball tickets for the game – will be receiving their tickets on Wednesday, April 19. Please look for them in your child’s folder or backpack that day.
Get ready for our annual spring Book Fair, which will take place next week from April 24th through the 28th. Every book purchased supports our school. Tuesday, April 25th we will have our BES Spring Fling. Come to school from 5-7 pm to enjoy a hot dog dinner sponsored by the PTA and storytelling in the courtyard! Storytelling sessions will begin at 5:30 and 6:30, and last a half hour. Dinner will include a hotdog, chips, drink, and dessert. Also, the Book Fair will be open for shopping! Stay for the PTA meeting at 7. We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday for a wonderful evening!
Friday, April 28th is the Byrd Spring Formal from 6-8 pm. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend. Please return the bottom of the flyer and $7 for each child. You can see the flyer for more information on our school website. The flyer is also attached to this email. spring formal.pdf
Finally, remember to sign up for the GCPS STEM camp taking place this summer from June 19th to the 23rd. Students brought home a flyer, and you can access it on the school website as well.
Thank you for reading, and have a great week!
