A Lunch Thank you!

On behalf of our entire Byam Staff, we would like to thank everyone for the delicious lunch meal provided by our BSA and our parents for Staff Appreciation this past Wednesday. Everything was delicious! Thank you also to our parents who set up the tables and decorations, and help clean up afterwords. Everything was wonderful and scrumptious, thank you!

Nurse Regan Message: Medication Pick up

Byam Library News Message from Mrs. Driscoll

Last Friday, May 27 was the last day students were able to check out Library books. All books should be returned by Monday, June 6, after which date I will begin contacting parents of students who still have outstanding items. If children have books to return, they may bring them to the library any morning (not just on their Library day). If a book is lost or damaged, money to replace the book can be sent by check or through PayPal to the BSA. Thank you all for your continued support of the Byam School Library!

Congratulations to our 4th grade tour guides for bringing us on a journey through the 50 states during their States Festival on Wednesday June 1st. Did you visit Delaware or Mississippi, Hawaii or Alaska? No matter where you traveled, the costumes, posters, and brochures were impressive! The event culminated in a grade-wide song of the state capitals!! Ask your 4th grader to sing the song and be prepared to be amazed! Thank you to our fourth grade teachers!
