The week of October 18th-22nd will be a big week at Byrd Elementary School.  We will host a Book Fair and recognize World Bullying Prevention Month.  We will celebrate both events with Fairy Tale Week.  Students will enjoy poster contests, dress-up days, and daily trivia.  Please see the flyer below on Fairy Tale Week for more information.  Our big event that week is Tuesday night.  Families are invited to come in costume to trick-or-treat at school.  Dinner will be provided for families as well as a Kona ice ticket for each student (additional Kona ice purchases are allowed).  The Book Fair will be open for shopping as well.  We will have raffles at the Book Fair, and plenty of fun and excitement throughout the building.  We hope to see you there between 5:00 and 7:00!  Please RSVP for the event using this link so we can have an accurate count for dinner.

The Book Fair is the largest fundraiser for our library program, and it funds the purchase of library books, reading programs for students, and fun reading themed events for the school.  Please consider volunteering at the Book Fair.  No experience is necessary, and each volunteer gets 10% at the fair on every purchase.  Click here to sign up for as many volunteer spots as you would like!
