We depend on contributions to make enrichment programming and field trips a reality for our students.  Each year the BSA pays for two enrichment programs per grade and transportation to field trips.  The BSA is also responsible for funding the playground and classroom supplies and teacher needs during the year.  In order to cover the costs (average of $65/student each year) we need to fundraise.
Here are some easy ways for you to give money to Byam Elementary…all without spending an extra cent!

Turn your grocery shopping trips into easy cash for Byam and encourage friends and relatives to do the same! Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products in almost every aisle of the store. Download the Boxtops for Education App and scan your grocery bill and you are done or if you have any products with valid logos, clip the logos off and send them to school—each one is worth 10¢ for Byam.
