Birch Meadow Cares

Birch Meadow students participated in Birch Meadow Cares community projects. Students partnered between grades and created projects together helping others in need. The projects supported such organizations as The Reading Food Pantry, Birthday Wishes, Jimmy Fund, and the Heifer Foundation. Thank you to the teachers and school council who helped coordinate this great event.
Many more pictures are available on our Shutterfly page.

Read Across America

Read Across America was a great success this year. Thank you to the many parents, students, and staff who supported the program. The conclusion on March 2 included a whole school flash mob.

In addition, students participated in a sneaker project based on books read in class together. You can see pictures of a few projects below and many more available on the Birch Meadow Shutterfly Page.
