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
