From the Superintendent
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.
Bring A Friend To School Day and Applefest
Friday, October 9
We are eagerly looking forward to our Bring a Friend to School Day on Friday, October 9. 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. 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. Registration forms will go home within the next week. These must be signed and returned by the parents/guardian of the guest student.
Please remember that LACE will once again sponsor Applefest this year on Friday, October 9. This year’s event will be on the same day as Bring a Friend to School Day. Please mark this date on your calendar for both of these important events.
