Student Notices - Sep 27, 2022

  • Attention all current or former Glow club members: Come out to promote GLOW club today at lunch on Club’s day. Meet in the art rm 133 to organize right at the start of lunch.  Pop by to see Ms. Moss or Mr. Smythe if you have any questions beforehand. We hope you can make it! 

 

  • Are you interested in meeting new people, trying something new, or doing something you’re passionate about? check out all of Hugh Boyd’s different clubs today during lunch in the lounge where you can learn more and sign up. 

 

  • Attention all Gr. 12 students: There will be a mandatory meeting this Thursday, Sep 29th, at lunch in the old gym to discuss your CLC and Capstone course. This is a graduation requirement, so it is very important you attend the meeting. Attendance will be taken. If you cannot make it, please email either Ms. Minato or Mr. Harowitz. Again, meeting for all Gr. 12 students this Thursday at lunch in the old gym.

 

  • Good luck to the Boyd cross country team who will be competing in their first meet tomorrow (Wednesday) at McNeill. Come out and cheer them on. Juniors run at 3:45 and Seniors run at 4pm. Go Trojans!

 

  • Friday is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, and Orange Shirt Day.  The day remembers the children who never returned home, and the survivors of residential schools.  It honours them and their families and communities who are still affected to this day.  Commemoration of the painful history of residential schools and its ongoing impacts is important to the process of reconciliation.  Wear orange to school on Thursday to honour survivors.  Take the time on Friday to learn and contribute towards reconciliation by reading the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action.  Read the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, a major feature of the Calls to Action. Links to both documents are in the upstairs hallway, or just search for them. Friday isn’t just a day to wear orange and forget; it is a day to remember and learn.

 

  • On October 5-7, Boyd will have the Breaking Down the Walls Program visiting the school.  The purpose of the Breaking Down the Walls Program is to support the sense of school pride at Boyd.  The program gives all students and staff, regardless of their peer group, permission to talk to one another and hear each other’s stories. We are currently looking for student leaders – applications are due by the end of the day TODAY at 3:00pm.  Information was emailed to students on Friday, and can be found at the office.  All students will also have the opportunity to sign up for a full-day - feel free to sign up with a friend!  

 

  • Hey Trojans! Student council is presenting their first spirit day of the year! get ready for diversity day where you can show off your culture, religion, or community by wearing cultural clothing or colours that resonate. see you at lunch in the lounge this Wednesday!

 

  • On Saturday September 3rd, a horrible accident resulted in a car plowing through the brick wall of one of RAPS largest thrift stores on Francis Rd. Thankfully nobody was hurt, but the accident left severe damages to the building. Help the interact club support RAPS by buying yourself and a friend a bubble tea during lunch tomorrow in the lounge for $6. Hope to see you there!

 

  • Attention Gr. 8 and new students: You may be getting an email regarding your new MYED User ID and password.  Once you receive the email, use a computer to log in and change your password right away.  You will need to sign in to MyEd to view your report cards in the future. Please DO NOT use a cellphone to login.

 

  • The Library Learning Commons is a very popular and welcoming place during PLT!  We would like to remind everyone wanting to come into the Library during PLT that you speak in whispers, as the noise level can get very high.  You are also expected to work on something--study, review, read, 3D print, personal project, capstone, or even pursuing personal learning and inquiry-find something you are interested in and learn about it! Please do not come just to hang out on your phone or with friends. On days that the library is booked for presentations, seating will be very limited, and silent study is expected so we can hear the presentations. Thank you for your cooperation!
