Byam School Association Updates
ROB SURETTE's visit to Byam: March 29-31
What an amazing opportunity for our Byam students to have world renowned artist, Rob Surette, as our 3-day artist in residence this week! He spent time with each class to build a Lego mosaic while having a super positive and inspirational dialogue with the kids. Messages of self-empowerment and kindness toward others were the theme. The kids walked away with big smiles, excited about their part in the creation, and feeling good about themselves! Stay tuned for the big reveal of the mystery mosaic!
4th graders in Mrs. Babson's class enjoyed a field trip to the Lowell Mills
History was brought to life for the fourth graders during a trip to the Lowell Mills National Park. Students in Mrs. Babson's class visited the Lowell Mills. They participated in hands-on learning activities, and visited sites where history was made. Students had a guided tour of the Boott Cotton Mills and Boardinghouses where the Lowell "mill girls" and later immigrants worked and lived.
