FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
August 17, 2015
Dear Students and Parents:
On behalf of the faculty and staff, we are excited to welcome you to Byrd Elementary. Whether you are returning or joining us as a new student, we hope you will find Byrd a great place to learn and make new friends. With the help of everyone, this year will be a very rewarding experience for all.
Please read through your new agenda to make yourself aware of the procedures, rules, and policies that will have an impact on our school year. Knowing the information in the agenda will give you the answers to most of the questions that may arise during the year.
Every student is expected to do his or her very best. To do so will require a total commitment from each student. With the many opportunities available, I believe each student will have a truly successful year.
Parents, it will take a commitment from you as well. I ask that you communicate with your child’s teachers and with your child concerning his or her progress. Please take a moment to read this year's student agenda (handbook) and make yourself aware of its information. It was developed as a guide and a referencing tool to help us provide a safe environment and an "appropriately focused educational opportunity" for all our students.
I look forward to seeing and hearing from you throughout the year. Let us work together to prepare our students for a successful 2015-2016 school term.
Have a great school year.
J. Russell Gunter
