Dear Grade 7 Parent/Guardian:
We are extremely excited to welcome your son/daughter to our school for September, 2018! We look forward to working with your family as you likely have a number of questions about the transition to Grade 8. Though it is only January, we are already planning for the next school year to ensure a smooth transition from elementary school for your child. On Thursday, January 25th, we have scheduled a Showcase Night at 6 pm. Parents and students are invited to tour the school and enjoy some presentations from the music department, the Incentive Programme and others. At 7 pm, the information meeting will start in the library where you have a chance to hear about the options available for your child at Boyd. You’ll also learn about our IB Middle Years Program and our Incentive Program, both of which are designed to offer students an enriched learning experience.
If you are unable to attend the Showcase evening, please don’t hesitate to call with any questions you might have, or come to our Parents’ Tour on Wednesday, January 31st at 8:45 am. Join us for some refreshments and walk through some Grade 8 classes while they are in session. We hope you can come out and see the Boyd energy in action!
Finally, our Leadership class will be hosting a Grade 7 orientation on Wednesday, April 11th from 9 am – noon.
Attached on this page is information about our Incentive program - applications are due Friday, February 2nd by 3 pm.
