Grade 7 Parent Information

Dear Grade 7 Families,

It has been wonderful connecting with students and teachers from our feeder schools this week. Our counsellors were excited to provide your child with information pertaining to ‘Life at Boyd’, Extra-curricular opportunities and of course, our core academics and elective options for 2022-2023.

Beyond an orientation to counselling services, these presentations provided students an overview of the courses they will be registered for next year. Within this outline, students had the chance to participate in a brief tutorial on how to select their Language Course and Arts Education electives. Here, they also learned where they can identify the need for a Resource or Learning Support Block, as well as an English Language Learning Course for all those eligible.

This selection process is completed online using the link below and is DUE FEBRUARY 18th, 2022.

Should you have any questions that cannot be answered via the information provided on the School Website or on the Course Selection Form Online, please contact our Main Office.

We are excited to see everyone in-person and welcome you to the Boyd Community!

We are extremely excited to welcome your son/daughter to our school for September, 2022!  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 27th, we have scheduled a Program Planning Information meeting and Showcase Night at 6:30 pm.  Due to restrictions in place due to COVID-19, we are inviting you to join us on TEAMS (see the Hugh Boyd website here). Attached are the instructions for how to log in to a TEAMS meeting, even if you do not have the Application on your device.

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 via TEAMS Conference in early February to give students information about Boyd and Grade 8 course selection.
