Mr. Gary D. Boyd
Dear Students for 2020-2021 School Year,
Welcome back to a NEW year of school. Unfortunately, it is not how we would like for it to be. We must continue to move forward and constantly overcome our struggles. Just like the school year, Covid 19 will come and go and hopefully our teaching/learning careers will be back to normal or better yet, our lives will have improved. Virtual learning is also new to us, teachers, so stay calm and keep focused on what's most important...like learning new math strategies, learning to become computer literate and graduating to the 8th grade. I hope to see you FACE to FACE sometime this academic year. I hope you'll have a fantastic day as well as an awesome school year.
