The Birney Buzz plus 11/09/2021
Posted on 11/10/2021

Hello Birney friends and families,

Adding on to the earlier Buzz…couple corrections!

  • School Picture Make-Up Day is Thursday, NOVEMBER 18. We will take care of:
    • Students who were absent on our original picture day. 
    • ‘Cap-and-gown’ pictures of the 5th graders for end-of-the-year promotion. 
    • Students whose original pictures were not satisfactory.  How do I know that?  You go to

      and enter the code FE122021.  Or you can call them at 1 (877) 515-1447 if you need help. 
  • Next week?  1:30 dismissal, Minimum Days for Parent-Teacher Conferences – all next week – it’s not you, it’s me!  Don’t look through your Buzz emails for where I first announced it, you are right, I had not explicitly announced it. I know teachers sent home spots for you to sign up, but that isn’t a clear announcement giving you the heads up that your kid(s) get out of school daily next week at 1:30. I apologize!

For those of you astrologically minded, Mercury must be in deep, deep retrograde – both the superintendent and I have had communication difficulties the last few weeks! I’ll blame it on the pandemic disruption to school over the last year and a half – it’s thrown us all off in so many ways.


  • Saturday’s Scholastic Book Fair, Saturday 11/13/2021 at Birney by the library  (a great way to kick off that holiday shopping and help raise money for your school library) ends at noon, not 1

Thank you all for your support and patience,

Ms. Amanda
