Hello everyone.

We are having a tremendous day working together on our mathematics plan at Boyne PS and wanted to send out a quick message and share our thanks.

A huge congratulations to your School Council, who met for the first time early last week and have established their voting members and positions of added responsibility.  We meet as a council the first Monday of every month and everyone is invited.  They established their fundraising committee and we are happy to announce that Pizza Days are coming back to Boyne PS.  We know that you have been waiting to hear this news.  All pizza orders are collected in our cash on line system and orders are being taken until Wed. October 17th.  The first pizza day is Friday, October 19th.  This first series of days runs every Friday from Oct. 19th to Dec 14th. 

We are asking for your help with bus pick up and drop off locations.  We have received notification that we can all be better neighbours by respecting the properties of homeowners close to these stops.  We ask that you remain on the sidewalks and wait for buses to arrive.  Thank you for this.

Open House is Thursday, October 11th and we want to see all of you.  Food is available from Troy's and can be purchased from 5 to 7 pm.  No pre orders were done, it is cash and grab on the evening.  A wonderful, full menu of options are available for you and your family.  We are hoping to be able to eat outside, so consider bringing a blanket to sit on our field.  Our gymnasium will be open if we need to move indoors to eat.  Classrooms will remain closed and locked until 6 pm.  Once 6 pm arrives you will be able to travel to your child (ren's) classroom and meet our amazing staff.  We will be asking you to leave the building so we can be ready for learning the next day at around 7:15 pm.  We will set up in the front hallway of the school a table to assist families with enrolling in our cash on line system, and we will be displaying our Boyne Spirit Wear so you can see what is available to be ordered.   Our school council will be welcoming families and answering questions and of course we will display our Lost and Found accumulated since day one.  One final note on Open House, our parking lot !  We need everyone's cooperation in regards to the parking lot.  There will be numerous small children moving about the property.  We ask that all families park off school property in our neighbourhood streets and walk to our school.  A little inconvenience for everyone, shared with all of us will make for a safe, worry free evening.  Thank you so much for your understanding on this issue.  We appreciate all of you that have supported the school and followed our parking lot rules each and every day.

Finally, as we head into the Thanksgiving weekend, we would like to give thanks to you, our families for sending us wonderful children and supporting our school  We really do strive to 'work hard, be nice and make a difference' for every one of our students and their families.
