Byrd has “Half A Chance” event & Montrose uses Nearpods

Byrd Middle School held an event last Thursday evening centered around the book “Half A Chance” by Newbury Honor-author Cynthia Lord.  The book is a Virginia Reader’s Choice selection and was chosen as the All 6th Grade Reads Selection.  At the event, there were fun stations about the book and loons, a kayak photo booth, information about Alzheimer’s, refreshments, and door prizes.


The event was featured on the HCPS facebook page: and you can view the promo that the librarians made before the event here.
