Grade 7 Parent Information

We are extremely excited to welcome your son/daughter to our school for September, 2023!  We look forward to working with your family as you likely have a number of questions about the transition to Grade 8.   We are  planning for the next school year to ensure a smooth transition from elementary school for your child.

On Thursday, January 26th, we have scheduled an in-person Program Planning Information meeting and Showcase Night at 6:30 pm. 

During the Information meeting portion, you will have a chance to hear about the options available for your child at Boyd. You will also learn about our IB Middle Years Program, our Math 8/9 Enriched course and our Incentive Program, all of which are designed to offer students an enriched learning experience.  

If you are unable to attend the Program PlanningShowcase Night, please don’t hesitate to call with any questions you might have.  Our counsellors will visit all grade 7 feeder schools between January 23rd to 26th to give students information about Boyd and Grade 8 course selection.  Please click here to do course selection for incoming grade 8 students.
