Message from Principal Fredette and AP Dolan

Dear Byam Families,

It's hard to believe we are moving into our final week before Winter Break. We want to thank all our staff and families for working through this week's stomach bug. We have fun theme days every day next week for students and staff. As mentioned below, students can take part in as many or as few of the theme days next week. We're looking forward to the kick off of our theme week with festive hair or hats on Monday.
