September 8

From the Superintendent

Please remember that School pictures will be made on Thursday, September 18. Please mark this date on your calendar.

I hope that you are able to read the newsletter on the school website. The newsletter is now available on the school website on Mrs. Sullens’ blog page. If you still would like a printed copy, they will be available in the office. You may have your child pick up a copy if needed.

We have now received our Kroger gift cards. My family has begun using ours, and I hope you have also. I believe that you may load up to $500 at a time on the card, then when you pay at checkout, pay with the card. Boyd Christian then gets 4% of the amount of your total purchase. This is basically free money for the school, as it does not cost you or the school anything.

I hope that you will take a look at the School Pop website (www.schoolpop.com) and register there also. If you do any online shopping, the school can receive cash rebates there also. Many popular online retailers such as Land’s End, L.L. Bean, J.C. Penney, Circuit City, Amazon, and others are on the site. Also, many of these retailers offer discounts through School Pop. For example, I have often used FTD to send flowers to my mother on special occasions, since she lives in another state. If I use FTD again next month for her birthday, I will get a 15% discount through School Pop, and Boyd Christian will get a 7.5% rebate on my total purchase. If you do any online shopping, this can be a tremendous benefit to the school. Many companies offer free shipping. Please take a look at the website and see if any of your favorite retailers are there.

Book Fair Begins September 26

Please remember our Book Fair which will run from September 26 to October 1. Mrs. Shelley Rhoton, our librarian, always does an outstanding job with the fair. She always needs parents to volunteer, however. If you are able to assist Mrs. Rhoton, please contact her. Thank you for your support of this event.
