The B.Y.E. Buzz

Notes from the office

Our students have worked so hard on State Testing. 3rd-5th graders will have MAP testing this week. We will do all make-ups for Aspire as well. Thank you for a great week!

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! We have the BEST teachers at B.Y.E. that make our school top-notch. Please show appreciation this week by sending a nice message to your child(ren)'s teacher, having your child make a card or write a note, or bring their favorite soda to show appreciation. Thank you, PTA, for organizing the appreciation week.

We will have Spirit Day Fridays for the next few weeks. We are starting off with Neon/Bright Colors for May 6.
