Dear Grade 7 Parent/Guardian:
We are extremely excited to welcome your son/daughter to our school for September, 2021! 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, February 4, 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 Zoom (see here for the link and passcode).
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 and our Incentive Program, both of which are designed to offer students an enriched learning experience.
If you are unable to attend the Showcase Night, please don’t hesitate to call with any questions you might have. Our counsellors will visit all grade 7 feeder schools via Zoom or in person to give students information about Boyd and Grade 8 course information. Here is a link to the program planning video from our counselling department: Gr. 7 Parent Program Planning info
Information about our Incentive program is located here - applications are due by February 12th.
Also attached is information regarding the process for enrolling in the Math 8/9 course at Boyd. A Grade 7 teacher recommendation and successful completion of an entrance exam is required for students to enrol in this course.
Finally, the Grade 7 powerpoint presentation from our Showcase evening as well as the My School Day app instructions are also posted on this page.
