Our School

Dear Earl Boyles Community,

Earl Boyles is your school. I want you to feel that you are an integral part of this learning community. Everyone who is a member of this community: teachers, parents, secretaries, administrators, instructional assistants, the custodian, and of course the students, is actively engaged in learning and growing as an individual. We encourage and learn from each other while solving meaningful problems, whether it’s in mathematics or social relations. We know that learning together and from one another is one of the most powerful ways to learn, and it also builds relationships and community.

Get involved! The more you get involved, the more you and your child will benefit from school. I strongly encourage you to join our Parents United Group, to volunteer in the classroom, spend time helping in the library, or to chaperone on field trips. Please contact your classroom teacher or call the school for more information on ways to participate.
The fundamental nature of a school changes from year to year, depending on the children and families that choose to become a part of this community. You and your children will change who we are, just as Earl Boyles will change who you are. I look forward to undertaking this exciting adventure with you.

Principal Ericka Guynes


Summer Break and Office Relocation

June 15, 2014

Dear Families,

It always amazes me how quickly time goes by when you are enjoying what you do! This year it has been a pleasure to meet so many wonderful students and their supportive families. On behalf of the entire EB Staff, and myself I would like to express my sincere thanks to each and every family member for your support and contribution throughout the school year. Family participation in our school events, Parents United Group (PUG), conferences and volunteer work is greatly appreciated. Family partnerships with Earl Boyles are the key to leading our children down the pathway to success. So with much gratitude I thank you for a successful year!

Just a reminder that our school, playground, covered area, and parking lot will be closed for the summer due to construction and remodeling for our new Early Learning Wing and Neighborhood Center. Our school will be reopened on August 25, 2014, and the first day of school for students is Thursday, September 4. If you need to contact us over the summer our office will be temporarily be relocated at Ron Russell Middle School.

I look forward to seeing all of you again in the fall of 2014. I hope you enjoy lots of fun family time, keep safe and healthy on special trips and remember to encourage everyone in your homes to keep reading.

Take care, have a terrific summer, and I will see you in September!

Mrs. Guynes
