Message from Jason and Betsy

Dear Byam Staff,

We hope you all braved the storm, safe and warm. Thank you to Tom for what must have been a busy and tiring couple of days. Please use extra caution when navigating the parking lot. The spaces will and driveway will be a bit congested. With this recent snowfall, we are optimistic that we will be able to have our popular "snow day" incentive with a day of sledding and fun. Our plan is to announce this incentive on Friday this week and then have our special day on the following Friday (2/11). To make this snowy fun accessible to all, we are asking to see if staff and families might have some extra boots and snowpants to donate for the day.

Next Friday we will be having an official Byam/Chelmsford spirit day. We'd love everyone interested to dawn their maroon and white to celebrate our school spirit.

Reminder Byam Community Building Ideas

This school year (more like the past 3) has been hard. The PBIS team is looking for positive comments and ideas of things we can do as a community in the spring to make it a little better. There are also a few ideas we'd like to gauge interest in. The PBIS team would like to get staff feedback on ideas for community building. Please complete the survey google form below to submit ideas for any fun team building ideas or fun things for staff to voluntarily do together.
