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.
