Kindergarten and Kelso's Choices
New Byam Library Prize Cart Is Accepting Book Donations
Some of you may have heard of our new Library Prize Cart! On special occasions or as a special reward, your child may be allowed to choose a book from our prize cart “to keep forever and ever” in addition to selecting a library book to borrow for the week.
These books are mostly donated books that I can’t use in the library collection (either a duplicate copy of one we already own, a soft cover that won’t hold up to continual use, or a book that was designed to be written in.) For now, I have an excellent selection, but I will accept your donations of books for the cart. They can be new or gently used, appropriate for grades K-4. Blank books (journals) have been especially popular! Your student can either bring book donations in their backpack, or you can drop donated children's books off to the Byam office.
Thank you, and please let me know if you have any questions!

3 R Expectations as Byam
We recognize our students displaying these expectations by giving out "roars". Roars are stickers that students receive and then are acknowledged in our weekly announce video. Keep a lookout for roars coming home and ask your student want they did to receive it. As a school, we set roar goals during 3 points throughout the year and celebrate with an all school celebration if we hit our goals. We've giving expectation tours over the past two weeks on the various locations and will begin to implement our passport system next week to continue teaching these expectation. Below is the Byam matrix that highlights our 3 R expectations by location.

Thank you for joining us at our first BSA Meeting:
Thank you to all who joined us for our first BSA meeting of the 2022-2023 School Year. We loved seeing lots of new faces! There are lots of ways to get involved, from sharing ideas, to signing up to help at an event. Our next meeting is October 5th!
If your family's schedule required your child to miss school days please contact our clear Stella Murphy either prior to or the day of their absence. This helps decrease the number of outgoing calls our school office needs to do to inquire about student absences.
