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.
