Student Council is collecting spare change to help support those affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma. Donation jar can be found outside the main office. Every bit counts!
Grade 5 will take NJASK during the week of May 6th.
Grades 3 & 4 will be tested during the week of May 13.
Please make sure your child gets plenty of sleep, a good breakfast, and arrives to school on time
Grades 4-5 Spring Concert is on 5/21 @ 7pm
Please be aware that we ask you to stay for the whole concert, not just your child’s portion. It causes too much of an interruption for the performers and other guests to have audience members in and out. Please be mindful of visiting sibling's behavior as to not distract performers and other guests as well.
10 Bergen County schools on list of highest performing in state- Byrd is one of them!!!
Click here to read the full article from NorthJersey.com
"Ten Bergen County schools are among 57 that New Jersey has deemed to be "Reward Schools," meaning they were among the highest performing in the state last year, or saw the greatest student gains in passing state tests... The others in the high-performance category include Alpine Elementary School, Lyncrest Elementary School in Fair Lawn, Richard E. Byrd School and Central School in Glen Rock, Charles DeWolf Middle School in Old Tappan and Sicomac Elementary School in Wyckoff. The state said these schools had the highest rates of proficiency on state tests last spring — schoolwide and in various racial and ethnic groups."
