Dear Earl Boyles Parents, Students, and Families,
Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! I hope you all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward with enthusiasm to the new school year. We are pleased to have you as partners and want to assure you that we will do our best to help your child experience academic, social, and emotional growth. With your help, this will be an excellent school year. This letter includes important back to school information that helps in getting a good start to the year. As the year progresses, and as you become either more informed or more puzzled, we encourage you to call the school and talk with those who might be of help. If your questions deal with in-class events, please ask to speak with the teacher. If it deals with the overall program, curriculum, or activities, please feel free to contact me directly. One of our goals is to see that parents and guardians of students, like the students themselves, feel at home at Earl Boyles. To accomplish this we will communicate weekly through our bi-weekly newsletter called the BARK, which will provide information about school events and activities. We welcome and encourage your participation. It is my pleasure to be the principal of a school with terrific students, involved families, and a dedicated staff. The 2013-2014 year will prove to be an exciting one. Below are items of interest:
Construction is underway for an Early Learning Wing and Neighborhood Center at Earl Boyles Elementary School. Private and public donors have helped sponsor the new facility but a funding gap still remains. To raise funds, the David Douglas Educational Foundation is heading up the Earl Boyles Community Campaign. To support the Early Learning Wing, donors can give money directly to the Foundation. In addition, reflecting the project’s strong community ties, Hector Hernandez, a local artist, designed a large, colorful mosaic mural to be displayed in the entrance of the new wing. To support this project anyone is welcome to purchase a name to be displayed surrounding the mosaic design. Have a loved one, community member or family name be a permanent part of the art piece. Each individual name cost $25. The sale is for a limited time. Purchase now and show support for our school community.
