We had a great Indigo Book Purchase Night on Wednesday, April 3rd.

We have set up an online fundraiser where staff, students, and families can still make purchases online ANYTIME and help our school library grow.    Feel free to share the link and the invitation code to friends and family. Anyone can join (the more the merrier and more profitable ;) !

Just sign up for free at:  and use invitation code: LTBHT4

20% of sales go to the Boyne School Library.

We are very excited to continue our free fitness opportunity for our grade 5-8 girls and their mothers/female guardians. As part of our commitment to healthy, active living, we will have another  after school session for our female community members.

We have identified that there is a need for our girls and their female family members to have an opportunity to be involved in physical activity and to enjoy the relationship building that comes with playing together. Our second session will be held on Wednesday April 10 2019 at the school from 4:00-5:00pm. This session we will be playing Pickleball! We hope that you and your daughters can join us for this wonderful health and wellness opportunity.

Due to the physical nature of this workshop, participants should wear comfortable clothing and comfortable shoes.  Finally, we would like to remind you that this event is restricted to females only. Thank you for your understanding and interest. We look forward to seeing you in the school gym.

Should you have any questions, please email Ms. Petrovic or Mrs.  T.

Boyne Community Connections

3rd Thursday of every month in the Boyne School Library                   

Dear Parents/Guardians:

-Boyne Community Officer Date: Thursday April 11th -EQAO Time: 9 AM - 10:30 AM

-Settlement Specialist Location: Boyne School


Our Settlement Specialist will be here to explain her role and how she can help you settle here in Milton.  

Our Community Officer will be joining us to discuss social media. He will address social media sites such as Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc. He will address any questions and concerns you may have.

We wanted to inform all of our Boyne families that due to some changes with Google we no longer have the use of Google+ Communities to share and invite you to our sessions. We are in the process of looking into other ways to connect with our families about our monthly information sessions. In the meantime, we will continue to post our messages on this weekly Blog.

Our parking lot is an active place, filled with students crossing and vehicles picking up other students. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for your family. For ease, we recommend that families park their vehicle north of the school, across Louis St. Laurent, and walk over to the school.
