October 27

From the Superintendent

We are eagerly looking forward to our Bring a Friend to School Day next Tuesday, November 4. This is the only day of the year that we will be in school when Warren County Schools are closed. We are asking all students in grades K-11 to talk to their friends who might be interested in attending Boyd. We would like for each student who is able to bring one friend to school with them on that day. We hope to have many potential students join us on that day. Registration forms will go home this week. These must be signed and returned by the parents/guardian of the guest student.

Please remember that school will be closed on Monday, November 3, for Christian Schools Inservice Day. Our teachers will be traveling to Goodpasture Christian School in Nashville for this event.

Our annual Thanksgiving Lunch will be on Friday, November 21. The lunch will once again be catered by Wilma Jean’s Kitchen. Mrs. Sullens will be sending more information home this week. We hope that many of you will be able to join us for lunch on that day.

Many of you have recently purchased scrip cards from Mrs. Sullens. Those cards have now arrived. Please contact her if you have not received yours. This is an excellent way to help the school raise money. If you have not yet had a chance to see Tabetha about scrip cards, please do so.

This Thursday, October 30, our 4-H clubs will meet in grades 4-8. Officers will be elected at that time.

Annual Spring Banquet

This year’s Annual Spring Banquet will be Saturday, March 28, 2009, at the McMinnville Civic Center. Our guest speaker will be Coach Gene Stallings, former head football coach at the University of Alabama. Coach Stallings is a member of the Lamar Avenue Church of Christ in Paris, Texas, and has always been a terrific supporter of Christian education. Some of you may be aware of his son, John Mark Stallings, who recently passed away. Coach Stallings has spoken at other Christian schools in the area and is widely regarded for being a very inspirational speaker.

This year’s banquet will be sponsored by Dr. Pepper Bottling Company. Mr. Doug Milner, the general manager, has long been a generous supporter of high school sports and of Boyd Christian School. We are grateful to Mr. Milner for his support of this event.

Bonfire planned for November 3
A bonfire is planned for our students on Monday, November 3. This is the night before Bring A Friend To School Day. Please contact the school for more information.
