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.:

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.

Spring Open House

On Thursday evening, March 25, we will host an Open House for prospective students and their families from 6:00 to 8:00 PM here at school. This is a very important event as we make plans for next year. Please encourage your friends and associates who may be considering sending their children to Boyd to come and join us for this evening. This will be an excellent opportunity for visitors to see our school and to meet the teachers. Guests may feel free to drop in at any time during the evening.

Thank you to all of you who completed the recent online survey which was mentioned in a previous newsletter. We have started a new survey about the school climate/environment. Please take a few moments this week and complete the survey. The deadline to complete the survey is next Monday, March 8. Again, this is an important step in our accreditation process. The link for the new survey is:


Last week the School Board set tuition for the 2010-2011 school year. Tuition in grades 1-12 will be $370 per month, for eleven months, beginning with the July 5 payment. There will also be a technology fee of $25 per student to assist with upgrading the school’s technology. The registration fee will continue to be $250, or $200 if paid no later than April 15. Tuition in grades PK-3, PK-4, and KG will be $293 per month.
