3rd Grade Marshmallow Project

Last week the West Boyd 3rd graders were told to try to suspend the most mallows using 5 straws, 5′ of string, 10 toothpicks, and 10 rubber bands.  Judging by the pictures, it looks like they had a lot of fun with this project!

First day of the 2016-17 School Year is under wraps!

On August 17th, 2017 the doors of West Boyd opened to students once again.  It was great to see the students return, and meet the new students.  The students were greeted by the new Superintendent, Mr. Nelson, as well as the new MS/HS Principal, Mr. Koch.  They also went through bus evacuation drills and met with their class sponsors to choose their class officers.  Now that the dust has settled again, the students seem ready to settle in and start another great school year.

Hustle and Bustle of the First Day!

Back to School Pool Party was a Great Success!

The Back-to-School Pool Party was a great way, once again, to kick off the new school year.  Students and staff enjoyed hot dogs, chips, cookies, and drinks before they moved on to the real fun.  The Sheriff’s department gave a nice K-9 demo for the kids to enjoy. There was a lot of balloon launching, with the occasional water balloon fight breaking out!  The pool was full all night as KBRX provided music and prizes.  The students participated in diving board competitions that included best dive, biggest splash, and best jump.  Thank you to everyone who pitched in to help make this night a success!!
