November 10

From the Superintendent

I want to thank all of our basketball parents for your hard work in organizing the Bronco Basketball Bash last Saturday night. Tracey and Stan Pickens and Gena and Steve Tilton organized the event, and so many of you contributed so much in the way of food and gifts for the auction. I also want to thank our coaches who devote so much time to providing athletic opportunities for our students.

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, and I hope that many of you will be able to join us for lunch. Last year’s lunch seemed to be a great success. Wilma Jean’s Kitchen catered the event, and we heard many positive comments about the meal, so we have decided to use the same caterer again. This year’s lunch will be on Friday, November 21. The lunch will once again be catered by Wilma Jean’s Kitchen.

Please remember that report cards will go home tomorrow, November 11. Parent Teacher Conferences will be held Tuesday, November 18, from 3:00 to 6:00 in the afternoon. Please contact Mrs. Terry Stubblefield in the office to schedule your conference.

Annual Spring Banquet

We have begun taking orders for individual tickets for this year’s Annual Spring Banquet, which 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. Please contact Mrs. Stubblefield or Mrs. Sullens at school to reserve your tickets.

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.
