Byrd Elementary School was recently recognized by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries as a “Virginia Naturally” School. The “Virginia Naturally” award is given to schools that are committed to environmental education and stewardship of Virginia’s natural resources. Forty-eight schools were recognized in the state of Virginia this year. This is the third year that Byrd Elementary has received this honor. A pennant was presented to the school for this special recognition. The Budding Botanists Club is pictured holding the pennant!
Byrd Elementary also received a first place blue ribbon at the Virginia State Fair. The school participated in the “V . . . is for Virginia School Gardens” contest, which was sponsored by the Virginia Garden Foundation. The school’s entry was entitled “Life Cycle of the BES Courtyard.” The judges noted, “Great work, wish all schools had this commitment by students, staff, and community.”
