H.W. Byers PTA is off to a great start for the school year
Yes! H.W. Byers is off to a great start. We have kicked off the official start of the year and things are promising as we look forward to a positive impact on another school year. At our first meeting held Sept. 20, PTA executive board officers were introduced to the new body: Vivian Gulledge, president; Tonya Gulledge, vice president; Deloris Anderson, treasurer; Carrol Seldon, secretary. The body voted in chairperson(s) for the various committees. The parent attendance of the meeting was low; however, the school teachers and support were present in record numbers.
The PTA president and executive staff would like to thank Mrs. Pye and the elementary staff, Mr. Hannah and the high school staff, for your continued support. PTA congratulates our principals, staff, parents and students for the effort put forth on the MCT and standardized tests. Our scores are constantly improving each year and we as parents are particularly grateful because we know that this is a step in the right direction for our children. We know that this is leading them toward higher heights, such as better ACT scores, advanced placement, more academic scholarships, etc. We are looking forward to yet another promising academic school year.
The president and executive staff would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Randolph and the Marshall County School Board, especially our own Harvey Garrison for your approvals on the improvements made to our school and school grounds over the summer. As we pull into the entrance of the campus, we can see the start of the improvements. We appreciate the improvements made throughout the building, and more importantly, our children now enjoy a comfortable, clean and safe school experience. Thank you very much.
Yes! PTA is off to a great start. As your president I would like to challenge each parent, teacher and support staff of H.W. Byers to become a PTA member. Become a member and continue to help support our school officials, principals and students to become the best that they can be. Our meetings are held every third Thursday of the month beginning at 6 p.m. Our October meeting will be favored with the introduction of our Lions and Lady Lions basketball teams.
I would like to meet each and every parent within the H.W. Byers family.
