Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the Byrd Farmers Market! We would like to especially thank vendors and participating parents. We raised over $2,700! The money will split evenly three ways to purchase trees for our school playground, to support the Goochland Food Pantry, and also the Red Cross.
Chess Club is on Tuesday this week.
We are looking forward to Grandparents Day on Friday. The schedule will be posted on the school website tomorrow. Shuttles will run again this year starting at 10:00from Firehouse 5 to school until the last riders have returned to their cars.
This week the 5th graders are collecting pasta and pasta sauce for Food Pantry Fridays. The class that collects the most will earn a special prize!
The following is a special message from Kristi Bunovich:
Christmas is coming! We are collecting $5 gift cards to give to the teachers by drawing their names out of a hat. The teachers have loved this in the past. So please send in $5 gift cards from places like Subway, Starbucks, Lowes etc. by December 13th. Or if you prefer you can send in cash or check, and I can buy the gift cards. If you are writing a check, please make it payable to Kristi Bunovich. Please place all donations in an envelope marked with my name. This is an easy and fun way to show our appreciation to the teachers. Let’s try to get one for every teacher! Any questions feel free to email me at email@example.com . Thanks for your help!
Here’s the latest on Spirit Wear. Samples will be in the office and at Grandparent’s Day in the library. Candy grams will also be available for purchase until December 8th. You can find the order form posted on our school website.
Mark your calendar for the holiday formal dance on Friday, December 8th from 7-9pm. Parent volunteers are still needed. If you would like to help out, then please contact Jessica Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for reading, and have a great week!
