Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year. This will be my second year at Boyd, and I am very excited to provide you the best service possible. As your child’s principal, I will ensure your child has the best education imaginable. With that said, here are my commitments to you and your child:
- 1. To provide a safe and orderly environment for your child,
- 2. Have effective teachers in every classroom,
- 3. Have on-going and timely communication about your child’s progress, events and activities taking place at the school,
- 4. Provide a welcoming environment for our parents and stakeholders; and
- 5. Provide opportunities for parents and community stakeholders to support the teaching and learning at Boyd.
To be an effective school we must have your support. We need your assistance in providing a quality experience for your child. We need parents to:
- 1. Communicate with the school on a continuous basis,
- 2. Update all contact information,
- 3. Provide a proper place for students to study and do homework,
- 4. Check child’s bookbag for information from the school
- 5. Volunteer and support the school
- 6. Attend school meeting and activities (PTA, Parent Conferences, and School Programs)
If we all do our parts, your child will have an excellent year, and a strong foundation that will allow them to have a successful life.
