Let’s Help Nepal!

Help Nepal

Dear Byrd Community ~ The earthquake that hit Nepal is devastating! Byrd Middle School is deeply connected to this tragic disaster because we have Byrd Middle Senators whose native country is Nepal. Please join us in helping Nepal. Starting Tuesday 5/5 through Friday 5/8, please donate to help bring clean water, medical supplies, clothing and other needed supplies to Nepal.

Students may put their donations to “Help Nepal” in special collection cups in the library, in classrooms, and during all lunches in C-Hall. Students who donate $1.00 or more will sign a “Help Nepal” banner and receive a Free Seating Lunch Pass to use on Monday, May 11th!

Support from our teachers and Byrd’s community is also encouraged. Please write checks payable to Byrd Middle School and add Nepal Relief Service Project on the memo line for tax purposes. Your donation may be sent to Byrd’s Library.

Showing how much we care; thank you so much for giving from the heart!   The ESL Department and Library Staff
