Parents of 8th Grade students:
The EXPLORE Test Results are being sent home today, Thursday, 12/10/09. Along with their score report, the actual test questions are being sent home so that you can go over any problems your child did not get correct. Their score report tells the answer they chose and what the correct answer was. This is a great tool to help your student learn from the test. Please contact the teacher for an explanation if you do not understand the question your child did not get correct. (Last year teachers were asked to go over the problems that some students got incorrect during classroom time.) The EXPLORE is the practice test that PREPARES STUDENTS FOR THE ACT TEST. The ACT Test (along with the student's grade point average) determines whether or not students receive the LOTTERY SCHOLARSHIP. They need a score of 21 or a 3.0 grade point average. They will take another practice test, the PLAN Test, in 10th Grade. Then they will start taking the ACT Test and can take it more than once to try to improve their score. Gayle Mayfield

Correction:
The ASVAB Test will be given ONLY to 10th-12th grade students, NOT 9th grade.

the money needs to be returned to your child's homeroom teacher no later
than December 11th. Just a reminder; any unsold candy cannot be returned to

I want to thank James and Donna Goolsby and Holly Hodges from Goolsby Sausage for donating a new water fountain to the school gymnasium and repairing the water fountain in the main building. This has filled a tremendous need, and we are so thankful for their generosity. In addition, they have already been providing many of the office supplies we use here at school. Thank you so much, Mr. and Mrs. Goolsby and Mrs. Hodges!

Our PTF is about to begin their annual candy sale. Your child should be bringing home a permission slip today. Please sign the permission slip and return it to your child’s teacher, indicating whether or not your child has your permission to participate in this fundraising activity.

I am meeting with a prospective music teacher next Monday about the possibility of beginning an instrumental music program and a band. If your child is interested in learning to play an instrument, or if your child has already had lessons, please pass that information along to Terry Stubblefield in the office.

Please remember that school pictures are due back on November 13.

Yesterday our teachers had the opportunity to attend the annual Christian Schools Inservice Day, which was held at Columbia Academy. The theme of this year’s event was “Integrating Faith and Learning”. The keynote address was by Bruce McLarty, the Vice-president for Spiritual Life from Harding University. His presentation, “How to Teach Christianly in a Christian School”, was outstanding.

Recently our teachers began recognizing a “Student of the Month” in the middle and high schools. The purpose of this award is to recognize two outstanding students who exemplify the qualities that we want our students to have. It may or may not be a student with the greatest academic achievement. It could be a student who has shown significant improvement, or who has distinguished themselves in the area of service. I am pleased to announce that the Students of the Month for October are Kaleb Tilton and Mikayla Carroll.

We have been in touch with an instrumental music instructor about the possibility of beginning a small band here at Boyd. If your child is interested in learning to play an instrument, or if your child has already had lessons, please pass that information along to Terry Stubblefield in the office.

Special thanks also go to the BBB Booster Club for putting on the bonfire the night before. It was well attended and was a big success.

This Friday, October 23, beginning at 4:00, the ladies of LACE will once again have the annual Applefest program. There will be lots of fun, games, food, and basket auctions.

From the Superintendent


This week we have some very important events here at Boyd. To begin with, our 5th and 6th grade basketball teams play in the 3 Point Club tournament at Warren County High School beginning today. Play will continue throughout the week. Our schedule will depend upon our results tonight.

Then, this Thursday evening, the BBB Boster Club will host a bonfire here at school beginning at 6:30. This is another great opportunity to get prospective students on our campus. We hope that all of our students will plan to come to the bonfire and bring a guest. BBB began this event last year prior to Bring A Friend To School Day, and it was such a success that they decided to make it an annual tradition.

Please remember Bring a Friend to School Day on Friday, October 9. We are asking all students in grades K-11 to talk to their friends who might be interested in attending Boyd. Registration forms are going home today. These must be signed and returned by the parents/guardian of the guest student. We would like for each student who is able to bring one friend to school with them on that day. Last year’s Bring a Friend Day was a huge success, with 44 guest students in attendance. We would like to have more guests this year.

Also on Friday, beginning at 4:00, the ladies of LACE will once again have the annual Applefest program. There will be lots of fun, games, food, and basket auctions. The members of LACE always put in so much hard work to make Applefest a success, and they raise important funds for the school.











We had $2,258 worth of sales in our recent Book Fair. Our librarian, Mrs. Shelly Rhoton, always does an outstanding job not just with the book fair, but with the entire operation of the library and the Accelerated Reader program. The Book Fair helps to provide needed resources for our library. I want to thank all of you who supported the fair and helped to make it successful.

Last week we completed our Name the Mascot contest. The name which was selected was “Bucky the Blazing Bronco”. Thanks to all the students who participated, and a big thanks to Coach Gary Jackson for spearheading this project. Enthusiasm and school spirit is high, and we want to see that continue to grow.

The total net income from the fair food booth was $6,505.15. Once again, I want to thank each and every one of you who helped to make this project a success.

I again want to express my appreciation to everyone who donated time to work at the fair food booth, and also to those of you who made things to sell. A special thank you goes to Dachelle McVey for supervising the food booth. Dachelle and her family put in so many hours this week to make sure that our food booth was successful. Dachelle did an outstanding job, and we could not have been so successful without her. Thank you, Dachelle!

We were well represented by Boyd students at this year’s fair. Megan Boren, a senior, was named first runner-up in the “Fairest of the Fair” contest. Lauren Wilcher, another senior, and Monica Hillis, graduate of 2008, also were among the top ten finalists. Natalie Knox won a red ribbon in the art contest. Please let us know of any other students who won awards.

For all of our athletes in all grades, Dr. Jeff McVey, along with Mrs. Libby Kuykendall, have generously offered to provide sports physicals free of charge. These will be performed at Dr. McVey’s office beginning September 25. Please call Dr. McVey’s office at 815-5437 to schedule an appointment. Appointment times will begin at 3:15 in the afternoon and continue until 6:00 or 6:30. These are free of charge, and no insurance claims will be generated. This is a tremendous service to our students, and we appreciate Dr. McVey and Mrs. Kuykendall for making this service available to our families.

I have been informed by Coach Jackson that the local Walmart will begin selling Boyd gear in early October. It’s good to have a little more recognition in the community.

Today we are beginning a contest here at school to “Name the Mascot”. As you know, the school mascot is the Broncos, and we are in the process of improving our costume and having a





student mascot at ball games. Students will be submitting suggestions for a name for the mascot.

Special thanks go to Mrs. Dachelle McVey for all of her hard work in organizing the booth. It is an incredibly difficult and time consuming task to find and organize volunteers, order food and supplies, account for the money, etc. Mrs. McVey has done an outstanding job. We still need volunteers to work this week, so please contact Mrs. McVey if you are able to assist. You may get a message to her through us here at school.

I also want to thank Mr. Steve Hillis and Mrs. Sonia Vandagriff for their efforts in organizing our booth under the grandstand. Thanks to some donors, we have been able to give away free Bibles with the school’s name inside to anyone who wants a copy. We also have been showing the video of the Gene Stallings speech, as well as a promotional video about the school which was filmed by Mr. Shelby Kohring, the youth minister at the Westwood Church of Christ. This video was very professionally done, and we are indebted to Shelby for his efforts with this.

Last week, Mr. Greg Vinson and I attended a luncheon at Lipscomb University for business managers and administrators from area Christian schools. In attendance were representatives from Middle Tennessee Christian, Ezell-Harding, Nashville Christian, Friendship Christian, and the Lipscomb Campus School. All of the schools represented reported a decline in enrollment, with a couple of schools dropping by as many as 60 and 70 students. Only Boyd Christian reported an increase in



enrollment. I felt very fortunate that in tough economic times, God continues to bless us.

Some of you have been helpful in providing names and contact information for home schooled students in the area. We are putting together a database of home school families here in Warren County that we can contact about providing some of these services. This could be an excellent source of revenue for the school; we could even gain some new full time students. If you know of a family that home schools their children, please pass along their name and phone number to us here in the office.

From the Superintendent


We still need volunteers to work in the fair food booth. As you know, the Fair will be held September 11-19. Many parents have volunteered, but we still need more. We need all parents to help us in any way possible. Please contact Mrs. Dachelle McVey if you are able to help. This is one of our biggest fundraising projects of the year. Your help is appreciated by all of us.

As many of you know, President Obama will speak to the nation’s school children today on the topic of their personal responsibility for their education. Yesterday, the White House posted the text of President Obama’s speech on its website. You can read the entire speech here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/MediaResources/PreparedSchoolRemarks/. I have read the text of the speech, and I believe the message is very worthwhile for children to hear. Given that the topic is personal responsibility, it seems an especially appropriate message for parents to share with their children to help reinforce the issue of responsibility both at school and in the home. The tape of the speech will likely be available on the internet and on television this week. I suggest that all parents read the text of the speech and decide for themselves if they want to share it with their children. I will have copies of the text available here at school in case any of you would like a copy.

As I mentioned last week, we are looking for ways that we can provide services to home schooled students here in Warren County. We are putting together a database of home school families here in Warren County that we can contact about providing some of these services.



If you know of a family that home schools their children, please pass along their name and phone number to us here in the office.

7th-8th Grade Girls’ Basketball Meeting

We will have an important meeting for all parents and girls who want to play 7th-8th grade basketball this Friday afternoon at 5:00 in the school cafeteria. We do not have enough of our own students to form a team, and since it is not a high school team, it is acceptable to allow girls who are not students here at Boyd to play. If your daughter is interested in playing, please plan to be at the meeting. Also, if you are aware of any home schooled girls who may be interested, please mention it to their parents.

We have had a successful opening to school, and the students seem to be happy to be back. I want to thank all of you who have volunteered time and effort to help us get the school year started.

The School Board would like to invite all parents to a Back to School meeting this Thursday at 6:30 PM in the school cafeteria. This is a good opportunity to meet the individuals who serve on our School Board.

As many of you know, we are making preparations to operate our fair food booth. The fair is opens September 11 and closes September 19. We need as many volunteers as we can get. This is one of our biggest and most important fundraisers of the year. If you can help, please contact Mrs. Dachelle McVey.

Our new lunch program seems to working smoothly. The menu will be posted on the school website. Originally, we thought that we would be able to allow students to order food in advance. However, in order to do this, we would have to take student orders two weeks in advance. This probably would be unworkable. However, if your child has some favorite items, we can order m ore of those to make sure that we have sufficient quantity. So far, we are accomplishing our goal of providing healthy lunches in a manner that is cost effective to the school. Early comments by the students are positive. If you would like to send us your comments, please feel free to e-mail me or Mrs. Dietra Dunlap.

We are currently looking for volunteers to monitor our PK and KG classes during their nap time. If you would be interested in helping us with this, please let us know. Please call Terry Stubblefield in the office, or send me an e-mail.

Dear Parents, Teachers, and Friends:

Last week, Mr. Ben Nixon announced his resignation from the Board of Directors of Boyd Christian School. Mr. Nixon has served the Board for eighteen years, including the last four as Chairman. As Vice-chairman, I will assume the duties of Chairman until our annual election of officers in July.

Mr. Nixon’s leadership on the board has been invaluable. He has helped to lead the school through challenging times. During Mr. Nixon’s tenure on the Board we added our high school. In addition to countless hours of service at Board meetings and other functions, Mr. Nixon has tirelessly volunteered his time and money to take care of maintenance and repairs at the school. I hope that all of you will join us in expressing appreciation to Mr. Nixon for his years of faithful service to the students of Boyd Christian School.

In Christ,

Brett Merritt

A big thank you goes to our BBB Athletic Booster Club for hosting the high school Athletic Awards Banquet last Saturday night. Club president Steve Tilton and the rest of the officers and members put in many hours to help support our athletic program. Thank you to all of you who came and supported their spaghetti supper. Without the efforts of parent volunteers, we would not be able to have extra-curricular programs like this.

Some of you have been eating at Pizza Hut on Wednesday evenings so that the school can get a 20% rebate from Pizza Hut on your bill. Now, we are able to get an additional rebate. We now have $10 Pizza Hut gift cards on sale in the school office. If you will come by the office sometime before you go to Pizza Hut on Wednesday nights and get a gift card to pay with, the school gets an extra 8%. We appreciate your efforts to support the school with these programs.

Please remember that will reinstate the bus route to Cannon and Coffee Counties for next year. More details about the cost will be provided in the near future.

Scholarships Available for Pre-Kinder

We have recently learned that we have up to three scholarships available for pre-kinder students through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. These are federal dollars which are available and are based on financial need. If you have a child who you would like to enroll in pre-kinder for next year, or if you have friends or relatives who might be interested and may be able to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact the school office.

Please remember to tell your relatives and friends about the addition of our 3 year old pre-kinder class. We still have space available. Interested families should register their children right away. Some parents have inquired about the possibility of 3 year olds attending part time. This may be a possibility, but we need to make sure that parents who want to enroll their child full time have the opportunity to do so. Also, in order to offer the program, we have to have a minimum of seven full time students, or the equivalent.

Cinco De Mayo


BCS Supporters,
PTF wants to "Thank you" for coming through once again for us with flying colors! This past Friday was Teacher/Faculty Appreciation Day; it was WONDERFUL. The faculty could not believe all of the food that was provided along with the GREAT door prizes. It was nice to see their smiling faces which YOU helped make possible. Whether you cooked food, sent money, brought drinks, etc. this special day was made possible because YOU wanted to do something special for our teachers and faculty. I have been given a lot of "thank yous" and "you don't know how much this means to us" since Friday; they are very appreciative of what you did for them. We held our last PTF meeting for the year on April 30th. We have scheduled another work day for July 25th from 8-12:00 PM; this is on a Saturday. Please mark your calendar now to help clean the BCS campus for Open House. Bring any yard equipment that you can for that day such as power washers, items to trim trees/limbs, clothes to paint in, etc. If you have questions, you may e-mail me at aramsey@fcbcs.org I was told today that all of the Mother's Day Baskets have been bought except for one-$12 item. If you would like to purchase the last one, contact Terry Stubblefield or Sonia Vandagriff. At this time, plan on the next PTF meeting being sometime in August after school gets started. We will have a lot to plan; especially getting our booth ready for the Warren County A & L Fair. PTF wants to thank you for all that you have done this past school year to help BCS and Christian Education. We couldn't do it without YOU! Thanks again and have a GREAT and SAFE summer.
Angela Ramsey
PTF President

From the Superintendent

Our Open House for prospective families seems to have been very successful. Many families visited the school that evening. Eight new students registered for the 2009-2010 school year that night, and others have registered since then. Special thanks go to LACE, PTF, and BBB for helping with refreshments that evening.

I also want to thank PTF for all that they did on Teacher Appreciation Day last Friday. Thanks to Mrs. Angela Ramsey, the PTF president, and the rest of the PTF members, for the wonderful food and other special touches they provided last Friday to make our teachers feel appreciated.

We have had new students enroll who live in Cannon and Coffee counties. We will reinstate the bus route next year. More details about the cost will be provided in the near future.

Last Wednesday, sixteen of our students were treated to lunch at Pizza Hut by the BBB club. This was recognition for being the top sellers in their recent fundraiser. The students traveled in style to Pizza Hut in a Hummer limousine provided by All O-K’sions. Thanks to Pam and Miles Wilson for their generosity in providing transportation.

The middle school Beta club trip to Huntsville will proceed as scheduled this Wednesday and Thursday, May 13 and 14.

Scholarships Available for Pre-Kinder

We have recently learned that we have up to three scholarships available for pre-kinder students through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. No one has applied for these scholarships yet. These are federal dollars which are available and are based on financial need. If you have a child who you would like to enroll in pre-kinder for next year, or if you have friends or relatives who might be interested and may be able to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact the school office.

Please remember to tell your relatives and friends about the addition of our 3 year old pre-kinder class. Interested families should register their children right away. Some parents have inquired about the possibility of 3 year olds attending part time. This may be a possibility, but we need to make sure that parents who want to enroll their child full time have the opportunity to do so. Also, in order to offer the program, we have to have a minimum of seven full time students, or the equivalent.

There has been much in the news lately about outbreaks of swine flu. I want you to know that this has not gone unnoticed here, and we are taking precautions. I spoke with our cleaning service last Friday to confirm our procedures. All of our bathrooms are disinfected weekly. In addition, all desktops in the classrooms are disinfected at the end of the week.

We have a middle school trip to the Space Center in Huntsville scheduled for May 13 and 14. There have been swine flu cases reported in Huntsville. We are re-assessing the situation and will make a decision this Friday regarding whether or not to continue with our plans to go to Huntsville.

The Board has approved the proposed $10 per month tuition increase. An updated enrollment contract is available in the office. Please remember to pre-register for 2009-10 as soon as possible. May 15 is the deadline for the early registration bonus. The Board has also approved the calendar for next year. It also will be posted on the website.

Our recent Career Day was a big success. Special thanks to Mr. Jason Gann for organizing this event, and also to all of our guest speakers. Special thanks also go to Mr. Gann’s parents for providing lunch for our guests.

Please turn in your lunch reservations and money by Thursday as food will only be provided for those who send in their reservation. Thank you.

PreKinder Classes

Mr. Harper has announced there will be a pre-kinder class in the fall taught by Renee Burch. Kristi Bost is currently considering taking the 4 year old class. As you may already know, both teachers are phenomenal. If you know of anyone with children 3 or 4, please do spread the word and let them know that they are more than welcome at Boyd! Please feel free to contact us with any questions. The pre-kinder day lasts the same duration as the regular school day. Tuition is also the same. Thank you.

Chorus Concert Was a Huge Hit!







From the Superintendent

Please remember the Open House for new and prospective families On Monday, May 4, at 7:00. If you have friends who are considering Boyd for next year, please invite them to attend. You are also welcome to accompany your guests. Please remember the referral bonus you can receive for families that you refer to Boyd.

In our last newsletter, I indicated that the Board had approved a $10 per month tuition increase. I was in error on this topic; the $10 was only a proposal that is under consideration and was not approved in the April 16 meeting.

Please remember to pre-register for 2009-10 as soon as possible.

I want to thank Jeanne Hagar and our Chorus for the wonderful presentation last Thursday evening. Thanks again to all of you who came out to support this event.

BCS Supporters, PTF wants to thank everyone who helped clean up the BCS campus last Saturday. I didn't count, but we probably had 30-40 people during the day. We especially want to thank BETA, Interact, and NHS; it was nice of the students to get out of bed on a Saturday to help around campus. There was gravel added to both parking lots, mulch put on the playground, new swings put up, the "big" tree moved and hauled off, etc. A BIG THANK YOU goes to Mary's Greenhouse for donating plants and soil at the front going into the main building; the flowers look wonderful! Don't forget to view the assortment of baskets you can purchase for Mother's Day. Several people have worked together to help put together this PTF fundraiser. Samples will be on a table in the hallway to view. Parents are being contacted to bring items for the Teacher Appreciation Day scheduled for May 8th. You may e-mail me at aramsey@fcbcs.org if you haven't been contacted and would like to do something. Anyone who wants to help that day can be at the school anytime between 8:00 and 3:00 PM. I know the teachers/staff are looking forward to this day, so lets try to make it a GREAT day for them. The PTF Officers want to thank Goolsby Sausage for the fundraiser. They gave the money for the top 3 sellers and also gave us ALL the money that was paid for the sausage. If you see James, Donna, Holly, or Mandy, please tell them THANK YOU. Please make plans to attend the next PTF meeting scheduled for Thursday, 04/30/09, at 6:30 PM in the cafeteria. Thank you for supporting BCS and Christian Education!! You are GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you goes out to Angela Ramsey and PTF, Interact, NHS, and some BETA members worked as well as many parents. Thank you for taking pride in our campus!

Newsletter

From the Superintendent

I want to thank all of you who participated in our Campus Clean-up day last Saturday. So many people worked so hard to clean up the campus, remove the brush pile and dead tree, improve the pre-kinder playground and our parking lot. Thank you again for all that you do for Boyd Christian.

At the School Board meeting last week, the Board approved the addition of a 3 year old pre-kinder class, contingent upon having seven students enroll. If you have a child who will be three years old, or if you know of another family that might be interested, please contact us as soon as possible. We need to know as soon as possible if we will have enough students to have this class.

The Board also approved a tuition increase of only $10 per month, or $110 per year, per student. Our Board is committed to keeping tuition as affordable as possible.

Please remember our Chorus concert this Thursday, April 23. Mrs. Jeanne Hagar and the chorus are working hard to prepare, and I’m certain that it will be quite a show! Tickets are $4.00 and may be purchased at the door.
