Community Service Day
Mr. Marquette has assigned Thursday, October 7 as our first Community Service Day for grades Pre-K-12. There will be one work day each semester for a total of two per year. These very important work days are required and will be considered an unexcused absence if not present. Our first work day will consist of preparing the school for Applefest, both indoors and out. Please have students wear work clothes and be ready to begin at 8:00 Friday morning.
Our second work day will be an excellent opportunity to serve our community. Although we have not yet chosen a project, we look forward to hearing your ideas as we strive for “excellence in all we do.”
Edline
Due to its antiquated system, we will be discontinuing the use of Edline. It is our goal to provide a new product that will bring both versatility and service to our Boyd family.

Parent Teacher Conferences

PTF NEWS

9-21-10

Boyd PTF notes as taken by C. Elliott.

Holly Hodges welcomed everyone to the meeting and introduced herself and the
new PTF board. She and Kelly also gave everyone their phone numbers and
assured the attendees that they are welcome to contact them at any time.
Holly made sure that everyone had received an agenda for the meeting that
had been placed on the table.

Holly discussed how hard and dedicated Dachelle McVey worked to make the
fair booth such a success.

The meeting was turned over to Sonia to discuss the upcoming Apple Fest
activities:

1. It will be outside Oct. 9 from 10 till 5

2. Inflatables will be provided thanks to donations.

3. We will have a Snack walk instead of a cake walk; Debbie cakes are
needed.

4. Ring toss; 2 liter drinks are needed.

5. Chili cook-off; you will buy one ticket to taste test each
participants chili then drop your ticket in the bucket of the chili you like
best to nominate it for the "People's Choice Award". Mr. Marquette will also
have a "Principal's Choice Award".

6. Sonia is working on getting the National Guard (?) to bring the
rock wall for students to climb.

7. A money grab box is needed to for children to stand in while a fan
blows around play money for them to catch.

8. A dunk booth is needed.

9. Games are going to be provided for the older children, such as
eating contests, etc.

10. At 6, On The Road Again, will perform for the crowd.

11. L.A.C.E. is considering the idea of allowing students to purchase a
wristband for $20, which will give unlimited access to all games.

12. People and business' are encouraged to sponsor additional games that
can be rented from Grand Rental.

13. Each class will silent auction a basket of goodies

14. 2 Titan's tickets will also be auctioned and Holly stated that they
are very good seats. Jeff McVey suggested printing off the view from the
seat so that people would see how good they really are.

15. Volunteers are needed to grill hamburgers for the day.

16. Sign up lists will be in the office. High school students and middle
school Beta will also help out.



Meeting was turned over to Dachelle McVey to discuss the success of last
week's fair booth at the local county fair.

1. Last year's fair was 1 and a half days longer than this year's
fair, but we grossed over $1800.00 more.

2. Our booth was closed all day on Wed. due to lack of volunteers.

3. Fri. and Sat. were each over $4000.00.

4. Dachelle came within $100 of last year's expenses, which meant less
food was left over once the fair ended. Hotdogs, hotdog buns, and some
chicken was leftover, which L.A.C.E. is buying to use for the Apple Fest.

5. It looks as if profit will be around $8500.00

6. The only complaints she heard was the wait time for service and
food.



Holly discussed the need for it to become mandatory to work the fair,
similar to what Convenant requires of its parents. Jeff McVey said it will
be discussed at Thur. board mtg. He also said they planned to discuss the
enlargement of the food booth. In particular, the food prep area and bumping
out the sections that cut into the serving areas. A second story would be
helpful, but he is unsure if it can be added. Of course, this would also
mean we would need to do a fund raiser for this particular project.



Holly began the discussion of the need for future fundraisers:

1. It was commented that last year's candy bar sells did not do well.
A lot left over.

2. Sell Dr. Pepper drinks

3. A possible consignment sale in the spring.

4. Coupon book where students only need to acquire addresses, which
was done in the past and participation was low.

5. Amanda Simpkins suggested "Art to Remember" where students draw
pictures which are then used to decorate mugs, calendars, Thank you cards,
etc. she is going to get more details on this fundraiser.

6. Kelly suggested having Sherry Slaughter do a scrap booking class or
for anyone else who would like to provide a class similar to her Coupon
Class, which was raised over $400.00 for the school 2 weeks ago.

7. Holly discussed selling shirts, hoodies, and car decals, with the
school logo. Designs were presented that picture the Boyd bronco horse head
and the school name. The background design could be changed out to represent
the different sports and clubs at the school. She showed three designs. She
plans to have her contact at Pulse Marketing to work more on the designs,
and then she will send out an email to all parents for their viewing.
Parents will be able to email her to give feedback. It was mentioned that
the "Christian" word on one of the designs needed to be in a bolder print.

8. Seat cushions and chairs were also discussed and Kelly Roberts said
that she would check on prices for those at the Outdoor Shop.





Dachelle wanted everyone to know that emails that come from her are usually
forwarded to her from Terry or PTF, so they may not actually be from
Dachelle.



Holly stated that she had called that day to speak with Greg Vinson to
determine the balance in the PTF account. She called just before lunch, but
he was out to lunch. Her call was not returned, therefore she did not have
the amount to give the attendees at the meeting.



Jenny Spitzer brought up the idea of school uniforms that is being
discussed. Jeff McVey said that it will not go into effect this school year,
but to look for it to do so, at least partially, for next school year. Jenny
stated that she felt that school attendance would drop when this became
official. Jeff told her that she would need to voice her concerns to Mr.
Marquette.



Jenny also suggested to Holly that she send the agenda out by email prior to
the PTF meeting to parents so that they will know what is to be discussed
that night, which might also encourage parents to attend.



Kelly asked Jeff McVey if the board could release the information that shows
the actual costs of running the school. He did state that this has been
discussed before and public information has been given out. He said that the
school starts the year with a $1500 deficit per student. The rest of the
money must be earned through fund-raising efforts. Libby suggested doing as
Middle TN Christian School. They post on their website a percentage to show
what is covered with tuition and the remaining percentage has to be
made/gained through fund raisers and private donations. Jeff stated that he
would bring up these concerns at the upcoming board mtg. on Thur.



It was discussed again the need for mandatory hours to be given by parents.
This would be for everything, and not just for the fair. Such as, Apple
Fest, ground work, etc.



The meeting was adjourned and drawings were conducted for door prizes.

1. Sausage winners: Kim Rigsby, Amanda Simpkins

2. Ornament: Brittany Taylor



Additional Comments were made after the drawings:

Creative Couponing will conducted by Kelly Roberts on Sat. from 10-12. The
last class raised $460.00 for the school.

Holly discussed the idea of PTF providing all the party needs for a class -
for a fee. Example would be for a Halloween party for 3rd grade. Each child
would bring in $5 each and the PTF would use that money to get all needed
supplies and to make food. Profit would be given to school. A menu would be
provided.

Amanda Simpkins suggested doing a Parent's Night Out. The seniors are
already doing a movie night to raise funds for their class trip to Europe,
but we could still provide other nights.

A fun run, such as a Turkey Trot in the fall, was discussed. Students would
get donations for each lap.

Not voiced at meeting, but if each child raised say, $50, then they could
get a free shirt. We could also have a competition at school to decide upon
the artwork (created by children).

Dachelle brought up the Scavenger Hunt and asked if it would be done again
this year. Sonia said that she thought it would be, since it is used to get
needed items, such as, paper towels, plates, etc. for the cafeteria.

Meeting ended at approx. 7:30

Today was our annual Career Day here at school. Mrs. Gayle Mayfield, our guidance counselor, did an outstanding job in assembling a group of interesting speakers. This year’s group included Candice King, CPA from Totherow, Haile, and Welch PLLC, Andrea Porter, RN, and Brad Whitson, Physical Therapist, from Amedisys Home Health Care, Brianna Zuber, Ponda Armstrong, and Aaron Cole, graduate students form the biology department at Tennessee Tech, Dr. DeRosa Stephens, optometrist from Horner-Rausch Optical, Ashley Wright, community relations coordinator from River Park Hospital, and Nita Brooks and Melinda Korzaan, Assistant Professors, Information Systems, from MTSU. Special thanks go Rebecca Merritt of the Bonnie Blue Inn for providing lunch for our guests, Adelia’s Blooms for flower gifts, and our PTF for providing funding.

The early enrollment deadline has been extended until Friday, May 7. Parents have until that date to register and receive the $50 discount off the registration fee. Registration has been strong; current registrations are approximately 5 times the number we had at this time last year.

Please remember that this year’s annual Spring Banquet will be held on Monday evening, May 17, 2010, at the Bridgestone Learning Center. We are very excited that Don Meyer has agreed to be our guest speaker. Coach Meyer was formerly the men’s basketball coach at Lipscomb University in Nashville, and has just retired from Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Coach Meyer is the winningest men’s coach in NCAA history and led Lipscomb to the NAIA National Championship in 1986. Tickets for this event

Parents/BCS Supporters,
I want to give you a quick overview of tonight's PTF meeting. There is a display of the Mother's Day Baskets as you walk in the main hallway of the Elementary building along with a list breaking down the items in each basket. The prices range from $10 to $30; these baskets also make great birthday gifts. You may purchase these from Terry Stubblefield in the office; checks can be made out to Boyd Christian School. One of the baskets has a gift certificate from Gondola; we appreciate the donation of the gift cards from Lisa Zavogiannis and her husband. We are looking at two campus clean up days before Open House; tentative dates are July 17th & 24th or July 24th & 31st. Once the Open House date has been set I'll send an e- mail to notify you of the exact dates. Teacher/Staff Appreciation Day has been scheduled for Friday, May 7th. There is a sign up list in Terry Stubblefield's office; if you cannot prepare food for that day, you can give money to go toward a food tray such as vegetables, fruit, meat & cheese, etc. There will not be a May PTF meeting. Chorus is going to have a bake sale, so if you can prepare baked items have them at school May 21st; I hope that is the right date Mrs. Hagar. Thank you for all that you do for Christian Education.

From the Superintendent

This year’s annual Spring Banquet will be held on Monday evening, May 17, 2010, at the Bridgestone Learning Center. We are very excited that Don Meyer has agreed to be our guest speaker. Coach Meyer was formerly the men’s basketball coach at Lipscomb University in Nashville, and has just retired from Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Coach Meyer is the winningest men’s coach in NCAA history and led Lipscomb to the NAIA National Championship in 1986.

In September, 2008, Coach Meyer was involved in a devastating automobile accident. During the emergency surgery that followed, doctors discovered cancer which proved to be treatable. Although he lost part of one leg as a result of the accident, the cancer very likely would have gone undetected until it was too late. Here is a story from ESPN about Coach Meyer’s accident and his return to coaching.:
http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/e60/news/story?id=3710245

In July, 2009, Coach Meyer was nominated for and awarded the Jimmy V. Award for Perseverance at the 2009 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.

Tickets for this event will be $125 each. Tables of 8 seats will be $1,000, or 10 seats for $1,250. Please call Terry Stubblefield at school to reserve your seats.

Our Open House last Thursday was very successful. Several families were in attendance, and all are seriously considering sending their children to Boyd.










Please remember that school will be closed this Friday, April 2, and will be closed all of next week for Spring Break.

Candy that is sold from this point on will be a PROFIT to Boyd Christian School; if you can help us sell the rest of the candy, please let us know.

We would like to begin our instrumental music lessons next week. In conjunction with that, Mr. Bob Simonds, the music teacher, would like to meet with all instrument students this Thursday at 3:15 at school. The meeting will last between 45 minutes and an hour.

Because of the weather, we will send report cards out this Thursday, January 14. Parent-Teacher conferences will be the following Thursday, January 21, from 3:00 to 6:00.

Our High School Chorus has been selected to sing the National Anthem at an Atlanta Braves game this coming season. The game we have been assigned is on Tuesday, June 1, at 7:00 PM against the Philadelphia Phillies. Average attendance for a game against Philadelphia is around 30,000 people. We had hoped to be assigned a game before school was out, but that was not possible. We have a section of very good seats reserved, and we can make those tickets available to members of our school community at a discounted price. If you and your family would like to attend this game, please let me know. I hope that we will have a large contingent on hand to support our students.

Please continue to check the Nashville TV stations to learn of school closings due to weather. If school is closed, that information will be posted on WKRN-2, WSMV-4, and FOX-17 as soon as that decision is made. An announcement would also be put on the blog.

Newsletter

From the Superintendent

I hope that everyone had a safe and joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year. It is good to be back and to see our students and teachers again. We are excited that our enrollment continues to grow. Our enrollment has increased by six students this week.

As many of you are probably aware, there is snow in the forecast for this week. For information about possible school closing, please check the Nashville TV stations. If school is closed, that information will be posted on WKRN-2, WSMV-4, and FOX-17. as soon as that decision is made.

When you check the snow tracker, look for Boyd to appear with the area private schools. If we are closed, we will be listed alphabetically as F.C. Boyd Christian School among the private schools.

Please remember that we will not open school late. We will either close for the entire day or open at the usual time. In addition, we will not close because of cold weather, as long as our heaters work!

Our high school basketball teams participated in the Wilson County Invitational tournament over the holidays. Congratulations to Dana Wells and J.T. Morgan, who were named to the All-Tournament team.

J.T.’s father, Lt. John Morgan of the McMinnville Police Department, recently saved the life of a man when he rescued the individual from a burning hotel room. The law enforcement and emergency response personnel who serve our community and put their lives on the line every day probably never receive the thanks they deserve. While all of us would probably risk our lives to help a relative or friend in danger, it takes a person of special character to be willing to risk their lives for a stranger. Sometimes it’s easy to take public




servants like Mr. Morgan for granted. Please join me in commending Lt. Morgan the next time you see him.

Most of you probably remember Mrs. Wilma Turner, who taught for many years here at Boyd before retiring at the end of the last school year. Over the holidays, Mrs. Turner was briefly hospitalized. Thankfully, her condition was not as serious as originally thought, and she is doing better. Please remember to keep Mrs. Turner in your prayers.
