Turkey Bowl 2015



To celebrate the completion of the Book Fair we are going to throw a Turkey Bowl.  The problem is, we can’t figure out what sport we should play at the Turkey Bowl. We will have a special assembly on November 24th when the teachers take on the students.

We want to know what you would like to play/watch at this years Turkey Bowl.


Voting closes on Monday, November 16th.  Starting Tuesday on your Byrd Library Website, you can signup for a chance to be one of the 20 students in your grade who will play against the teachers in the Turkey Bowl.

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
