From Mr. Parkinson

Our high school students are busy with semester tests this week while our elementary and middle school students are excitedly waiting for Christmas vacation. Let me take this opportunity to wish the best of this holiday season to each of you.

It is hard to believe that the first semester is winding down. This has been a good year thus far and I look forward to a good second semester. There is still a lot of work to do in this school year, however. Our success, I am convinced, came so far this year because of a lot of people working for a common goal. That goal is to work together to make Boyd Christian School the best it can be. As long as we work within Biblical guidelines, I am assured that God will give the increase. That doesn’t mean that we are going to wait on God to do the work. We must continue to pray for BCS, encourage parents to send their children here, and look for ways we can be more financially stable.

We are near the half way point on the 100 for 100 campaign to raise $120,000 for BCS. A lot of you have given freely of your resources and for your gift, I and the board are thankful. There still are those who have intended to give but have not done so as yet. Please sit down tonight and write out a check and help us reach our $120,000 goal. If you work for a company who makes donations to schools, please ask them to consider giving to Boyd Christian School. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we went over our goal by the end of January? We really need to do that in order to finish out the year in the black.

Some of the things you can do for BCS includes but are not limited to the following: 1. Pray for the school; 2. Talk to your church about putting BCS on their prayer list; 3. Encourage others to send their children to Boyd; 4. Look for ways you can suggest to raise funds for BCS (we desperately need to develop a capital improvement fund so that we might one day build a new facility); 5. Help us to start an alumni association whose goal would be to raise funds for BCS. I know there are other things that would help and my door is always open to you for suggestions.

I hope each of you have a great Christmas with friends and loved ones.

In Him,
Weldon Parkinson, Principal

From Mr. Parkinson & Newsletter

It is hard for me to realize it, but this is Thanksgiving week and I have so much for which I am thankful. I am thankful for a God that loves me and desires that I do those things necessary to live with him eternally. I am thankful for Jesus who died for my sins. I am thankful for my family with whom I will celebrate Thanksgiving, God willing. I am thankful for all the students, teachers, staff, and patrons at Boyd Christian School. Finally, I am thankful for God blessing this school in the past and pray he will continue to do so in the future.

We continue to have a good school year. Our students and teachers are working hard and the staff is so consistent in its support. However, none of this would be possible except for the support of the parents and patrons who have worked tirelessly in the different fundraising activities. I regret that we seemingly have to continuously ask our parents and patrons to support this or that fundraising activity. However, that is the way it is. We stand at a little over $40,000 in our effort to raise $120,000 through the 100 for $100 a month for 12 months. We seem to have hit a wall since Applefest, but I am convinced that with God’s help, we will achieve our goal before the end of the school year. If any of you know of an individual who could give a substantial amount toward this effort, I would appreciate hearing about it. If I need to visit with anyone who can give but need to hear about what we are trying to do, please let me know.

My spirit continues to be lifted up by our students and staff. I have never worked in an atmosphere as conducive to learning as we have here at BCS. The students are eager to learn and our teachers work hard to have lesson plans prepared that are challenging. Truly your children are in good hands being taught by Godly men and women. They are being nurtured in the ways of the Lord and I am sure this will prove beneficial for Christ’s kingdom in the future.

Please keep BCS in your prayers. Tell others of the benefits of a Christian education. Encourage those needing a tax break to give to Boyd Christian School. If you are preparing your will, please consider leaving a gift for the school. You will be investing in the future of the church.

God bless all of you and your families during not only the Thanksgiving season, but for the rest of your days upon the earth and most importantly, eternity.

Weldon Parkinson, Headmaster

Recognition Ad

Friends of Boyd Christian School,

Today your child should have brought home a Recognition Ad letter for the 2011-2012 yearbook. This is a great opportunity to recognize all of our students, not just the seniors who will appear in the senior ads. We are so grateful to our seniors for coming up with this idea! We also encourage the faculty and staff to recognize students for accomplishments within the school.We are trying to lower the cost of the yearbook from $45 to $25.

Our students do such wonderful things in school, in the community, and for their church and family! Let’s recognize their accomplishments by giving them something they will cherish for years to come as we continue to encourage them to do great things!

Space for these ads will be limited. Therefore, we will operate on a first- come, first- serve basis. If you would like to purchase an ad, please complete the form and return to Ms. Terry in the front office by this Friday, the 28th. This will help determine our price for next week’s Pre-Sale.


Thanks for all of your support!

The ladies of LACE would like to express our great appreciation to all those who

worked so hard to make this year's Applefest a huge success. We could not have
accomplished this goal without you. Thank you sponsors for supplying the bouncers,
games and entertainment that made Applefest so much fun. Thank you to

our vendors and to the local businesses who donated items for our auction. Thank you
teachers and parents who made donations and organized our auction baskets. Thanks
to everyone who supplied awnings and equipment for the festival. We appreciate our
teachers, parents and students who gave their time to work the booths and ensure
everyone had a wonderful time. We did have a wonderful time, and that could only be
realized through the hard work and generosity of so many. It is amazing how much we
can do when we all work together. Together your hard work raised over $5000 for our
school! Thank you again for your hard work and support!

Christie Bailey
LACE President
Today is the first day back from Fall Break. It is hard to believe that one-fourth of
the school year is over. It has been a fast pace first nine weeks. I encourage all parents to continue to monitor your children’s progress by going to Engrade. If you have not yet received an access code, contact us at school and we will take care of the matter.
I would like to personally thank each parent and patron who have supported Boyd Christian School thus far this year. Your help and support during fair week, mum sale, Applefest, and the pledge drive is deeply appreciated. Without that support, BCS would cease to be.
While much has been done, there is much more to do. We are at a little more than 25% on our pledge drive; currently at $35,900. If you know of others who can give in order to raise the needed $120,000 for this school year, pledge cards are available in the office.
Our kids deserve the opportunity to attend a school such as F.C. Boyd Christian School. If I can be of assistance or if I am needed to visit an individual, business, or church, please let me know. Above all, keep BCS in your prayers.

Mr. Parkinson

Thank you to all those who have purchased Foodland Plus Cards which are available in $25, $50, and $100 amounts. Please stop by the office to purchase these cards and Foodland will donate 10% of sales to BCS. We also have a new supply of Kroger cards which offer 4%.

In order to prepare for Applefest on October 8, the school will be conducting a Scavenger Hunt that is based on a point system. Soup labels, aluminum cans, soft drinks, cleaning supplies, yearbook ads, and new ink cartridges are only a few of the items on the list. Points range from 10 to 50,000 based on value of points! The collection dates are Monday, Oct. 5 and Thursday, Oct. 7. For more information, please see Mrs. Sonia Vandagriff, coordinator of this event.

On October 15, our local Junior Auxiliary of McMinnville will be hosting their annual “Coats for the Community”. These new or gently used coats provide cold weather wear and accessories to community members in need. Items needed are: coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets, hats, scarves, and gloves from newborn to adults. Last year, there was a shortage of infant and child girl coats, so please remember this group too. Used items will need to be washed beforehand which allows the Junior Auxiliary more time to collect items.
To make this program successful, BCS Interact students have volunteered to collect the donated items from the classrooms. On Friday, September 30, please bring your items to your first period class and Interact members will do the rest. Every coat will be appreciated and placed in the hands of someone in need.

Response to the mum sale has been overwhelming! Thank you to Holly Hillis for spearheading this event and to Wade Whitmore and his parents for providing these beautiful mums! Sept. 30 will be the last turn in date if you want to pick up your mums at Applefest.

The $100.00 Pledge~

Boyd seeks pledges to help meet budget shortfall for the 2011-12 school year.

Boyd Christian School headmas-ter Weldon Parkinson, left, re-ceives a check from parent Jamie Stinson and his son Alex, 8, as part of the school’s “100 for $100 Pledge Drive” which is raising money to overcome a budget shortfall for the 2011-12 school year.


Like many private educational institutions, Boyd Christian School is suffering the effects o current economic conditions, even to the point the respected local Christian school will be unable to make its budget for this school year due to a drop in enrollment, according to headmaster Weldon Parkinson.
As a result, Parkinson has come up with a unique fundraising plan which will give Boyd supporters the chance to help the school overcome this financial challenge.
Parkinson explained the school’s need and how the fundraiser will work.
“We were about 30 students short of what our projected enrollment was going to be,” Parkinson said. “Because of that we’re going to be quite a bit short as far as our budget is con cerned. So we have a need to raise approximately $120,000.”
Faced with such a daunting fund-raising goal, Parkinson began to think of ways to spread out the burden among Boyd’s loyal sup-porters.
“I decided if we could get 100 indi-viduals to pledge that they would raise or give $100 per
month for 12 months, that would raise $120,000,” Parkinson said. “When you break it down like that, then that is a doable thing. It would be hard for an individual to raise that kind of money, but what we can do collectively as a school, as a patron’s organization, as individuals giving to the school, then I think it is a reacha-ble goal. We’re calling it the 100 for $100 Pledge Drive.”
“We are asking all of our parents and patrons, all of the people who have loved and supported and benefited from Boyd Christian School, to rise up to the challenge and overcome this hurdle,” Parkinson said.
Parkinson says he hopes local busi-nesses, organizations and individu-als will join in the pledge drive, but noted $100 per month is not re-quired.
“If you can’t do the $100, then give what you can,” Parkinson said. “Because we understand there are people who just can’t do that. This is where 10 people who can give $10 or more for a year can be one of the 100.”
Parkinson says he realizes some pledge participants may not want to divide the payments up and would rather make a $1,200 donation.
“We have already had people do that,” Parkinson said. “They’ve writ-ten out the check
for the whole amount at one time. That money has been collected, unlike the pledges which will be paid by the month. We have already re-ceived those donations and we’re at $15,650 right now I think.”
Parkinson says he is making the pledge himself, and feels it is im-portant to provide the option for a Christian-based education in the community.
“To me we are building the future leaders of the church here,” Parkin-son said. “We can tell story after story of graduates who are now serving as song leaders, as Bible teachers, even preaching in the pulpit.
“A Christian education, whether you preach or teach or things of that nature, is important to the communi-ty. You know, the Bible teaches us to love one another, and these stu-dents that come to Boyd are going out to the community and working with these clubs and organizations that give so much back to the com-munity, that are always doing ser-vice projects. They’re a part of that. I think Christian education is very important, it teaches us the im-portance of making God a part of our lives.”

The fair is over and a lot of people can now relax a little. I would like to thank each and everyone who worked, brought food, baked pies, and did countless additional things that made BCS Food Booth a success. I would like to name each of you but I know I would leave some of you out. It always amazes me at what we can accomplish when we work together. Individually, we can never have accomplished more than we can collectively. Working together for the good of others is the Christian way.

On several occasions over the past few weeks, we have had former students come in and tell us how much they miss being at Boyd Christian School. They tell stories of what a difference BCS made in their lives. I have asked several of them to write their feelings down so I can share them with others. I would like to ask any of you who would like to share your experiences with BCS, to write your comments about how the school has made a difference in your life, or the lives of your children or grandchildren. I think these stories can be a great selling point for encouraging others to attend BCS.

We are nearing the end of September, and soon Christmas and the end of the first semester will be here. We need those of you who have committed to the 100 for $100 a month for a year pledge drive, to fill out the cards and turn them into the office. Continue to ask others in the community, church, or friends and relatives outside the area to make a pledge. There is a poster in the front window next to the door that is charting the giving thus far. We want to blow the top off the thermometer!!! Let’s make this pledge drive as successful as we did with the fair. With us working together, we can accomplish this goal.

Weldon Parkinson, Headmaster

Reminder to Elementary Art students: Please bring an extra shirt for Art this week if you have not already. We will be constructing paper pumpkins and it will be quite messy!
Thanks! Mrs. Tabetha

The Board of Directors and Headmaster of Boyd Christian School are trying to raise $120,000 by this time next year. We are asking 100 businesses, organizations, and/or individuals to pledge $100 donations every month for a year. One time donations are also very much appreciated. This money will be used to sustain the everyday operations of Boyd Christian School.

Wow! Due to the tremendous response to the Mum Sale at Caney Fork Electric, we have decided to run the sale again next Saturday, September 17, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Holly Hillis will be ordering extra tri-colored flowers which include purple, white, and yellow, along with the regular colors.

The Foodland Plus cards have arrived and are available in $25, $50, and $100 amounts. Please stop by the office to purchase these cards and Foodland will donate 10% of sales to BCS. We also have a new supply of Kroger cards which offer 4%.

Dear Parents, Grandparents, Friends, Relatives,
Once again it is time for our biggest fundraiser of the fall semester. We are currently planning the Fair Food Booth. Thanks to the great efforts of our wonderful group of concerned parents we have been able to raise considerable funds each year to support the school through this fundraiser. This year will be no exception. Don’t forget that this year, like last year, the fair is 9 days long! This is a great opportunity to earn extra funds, but requires more effort on the part of the parents. Each parent is expected to serve one to two shifts, but we know many of you sign up for many shifts and some of you for every day of the week. For that we are very grateful!!!

Attached is a schedule of work shifts. If you have already signed up, THANK YOU! If you haven’t had a chance to sign up yet, please sign up for one of the yellow or red hi-lighted shifts (blue shifts are for students only). The red shifts indicate shifts that are critical to running the booth smoothly. If these shifts aren’t filled, we will run the danger of closing for that day.
When signing up, please include your phone number so we can call & remind you. Please note that we will NOT be open on Sunday or Wednesday. Please return the schedules to your child’s teacher or to Mrs. Stubblefield or come by the front office and sign the sheet. If you received the schedule via email, you can return it via email.
Thanks!
Dachelle McVey

Attention Parents: If students sign out for the Warren County Homecoming Parade, it will be considered an unexcused absence. School work will not be allowed to be made up.

Excellence in all We do….
Col. 3:17

From Mr. Parkinson's Desk:

In Luke 2:52 we read, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” This is the mission of Boyd Christian School in working with our students. We want them to grow like Jesus. In reality, isn’t this what all of us are suppose to be doing? We want our young people to be taught to learn about and be obedient to Jesus. As Christians we are trying to be more and more like Jesus. To set a good example for our young people is a duty all of the staff at BCS takes seriously.

We also want to encourage our students to reach their potential through hard work and study. We recognize not all our students are college bound, but with the technology in industry today, preparation is still important. We simply want them to find a work they love and be prepared to do the job in a way that is pleasing to God. Education is a life long endeavor.

We also want to encourage our parents to be involved in their children’s education. You can do that by knowing how your student is doing. If you have not signed up for Engrade, please do so by contacting the office. We will get back to you and get you signed up so you can check assignments, grades, etc. throughout the nine week period. If you need to meet with your child’s teachers, please call and we will set up a parent/teacher/student conference.

We want everyone to know that this is your school. Be an active stakeholder in your child’s education. That will help a great deal in the preparation of your children for the future both with God and man.


PFT meeting tonight, September 6, 2011, at 6:30pm.

Weldon Parkinson
Headmaster
“THE DAWNING OF A NEW DAY AT BOYD CHRISTIAN SCHOOL”

Recently I had the privilege of meeting a man who means a great deal to Boyd Christian School. In fact, it was largely because of his and others like him, efforts and hard work that BCS is what it is today. This man worked for many years to insure students were able to attend a Christian school right here in this community. When something needed to be done, I am told Mr. C.N. Womack saw that it was done.

I know I cannot have the same impact that Mr. Womack had during his many years of service to this school. As the headmaster I don’t know that anyone can. All I can do is to try to carry on the tradition of Christian education as we now have it in this area of Middle Tennessee.

In order to accomplish this goal, we must all be united in one mind and spirit. We must allow problems of the past that has separated us be forgotten. Yes, mistakes were made and being human we will make future mistakes. But with the guidance of God, and forgiving one another, we can be the light in this community that Mr. Womack and others like him envisioned.

It is the dawning of a new day. What will this day bring? That question will be answered by each of us who are stakeholders in this school. Will I be a source of strength and encouragement? Will I work with my time and resources to make it better? Or will I hold on to my grudge and in reality, hurt myself by so doing? Jesus said to forgive in Matthew 18. I am asking as the new administrator that you forgive all past mistakes and lets pull together to make Boyd Christian School the best it can be. You will be proud you did.

Our numbers are down and we are going to have to make up the shortage in the budget. If you can make a tax free donation now or any time in the near future please do so. As tax time approaches and you find you need a tax deduction please remember Boyd Christian School.

Our future depends upon us uniting and truly having a common goal of making sure it truly is the dawning of a day where we have a bright and glorious future as the only Christian school in this area.

In Him,


Weldon Parkinson, Headmaster
