Upcoming Events at Byrd School


New Jersey School Performance Report for Richard E. Byrd School 

Dr. Weber wrote this article to help inform you as parents about the School Performance Report that was recently published on nj.com.  The information in that report is very misleading and paints Byrd School in a light that misrepresents how well our teachers and students are performing.

Byrd HSA

Mission Statement 


The Richard E. Byrd School Home and School Association (H.S.A.) is an independent 501(c) 3 non-profit, fundraising organization comprised of parents, teachers, staff and administration who volunteer their time, talents, and enthusiasm to achieve the organization’s mission.   The H.S.A. operates under bylaws and its goal is to support and enhance the work of the school staff and the Board of Education in providing support for the growth, education, development and enrichment of our children. The H.S.A. relies entirely on dedicated volunteers to plan, fundraise and run programs that enhance the educational and physical environment of Byrd School.
Whether you have a single hour in a single day/evening or the entire school year, there is an opportunity to participate in your child’s school.  We welcome new ideas, new energy, and any comments or suggestions that will facilitate our objectives!

Byrd Science Fair

March 22, 2018

Topic: Science and Society

How can science make us more efficient?



Online Registration EXTENDED until Monday, February 12 2018

All Grades May Participate

How can science continue to make us more efficient? This is YOUR chance to be a scientist and design an experiment that demonstrates a way for us to maintain our efficiency.

*Participants can sign up to work alone or in a group up to 3 people*

Here are some guidelines for your “Change” investigation:

Pick a topic that interests you

  1. Ask a question- how, what, which, why, or where, did a change occur.
  2. Research the topic/ problem- gather information from books, internet, or magazines
  3. Make a Hypothesis- predict what might happen based on what you know.
  4. Conduct the experiment- try it more than once to make sure your results are accurate.
  5. Record your results- pictures, videos, charts, and graphs help to explain your results.    Identify what change occurred.
  6. Make a conclusion- compare results of experiment to your hypothesis
  7. Report your results

   You will need to prepare a show board to share your experiment and results.

   The boards will be provided by the HSA.

   Your display should include your question, hypothesis, research, results, conclusion, and pictures of the student(s) conducting the experiment.


Sign up

Members of the Glen Rock National Science Honor Society will volunteer their time to help guide our students through the scientific process. The best way to facilitate communication is to sign up for the fair using Google Forms. Please have ONE member of the group file out the online form (CLICK HERE).
