Hello Boyd Elementary School Family,
Thank you for choosing to send your child to Boyd Elementary School. The staff of Boyd Elementary welcomes you and your family to our great school.
I believe, in order to lead a successful school, I must be a visionary, a collaborator, an advocate, a facilitator, a role model and mentor, an innovator, a researcher, and a scholar. These qualities help me to serve students, families, staff, and the community in ways that build partnerships that positively impact teaching and learning.
Boyd Elementary is a safe, nurturing, diverse, family-friendly neighborhood school with rigorous, effective academic programs and exciting, engaging, extracurricular activities. We believe all parents want the same thing for their children: to grow socially, emotionally, and academically.
This year promises to be great as we set high expectations for learning, and have some serious fun. Our test scores are escalating, but learning at our school means much more than test scores. We want our academic programs to come alive for students. Our students will move beyond the achievement of knowledge to produce work that is unique and exciting; projects and papers that communicate, persuade and convince. Ultimately, we want Boyd Elementary boys and girls to become the thinkers, innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders our city and nation require.
Our school culture aims to be nurturing and consistent. Most importantly, we are ready to motivate and engage your child in their learning. We know that helping students learn how to synthesize information, problem solve, think critically and organize their materials are essential, lifelong skills. Teachers are busy planning project fairs, portfolios of student work and enrichment activities to expand our curriculum. There will be opportunities throughout the year to celebrate your child’s progress. Parents are also encouraged to be a part of the Boyd Elementary School Parent Teacher Association (PTO) and Parent Advisory Committee (PAC).
