Martin Luther King Jr. Assembly
Boyd held its annual assembly to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Friday January 17, 2020. Sergeant at Arms Madelyn Moreno led the Pledge of Allegiance. Our Masters of Ceremony Gianna Viteritti and Adam Siddiqui began our assembly by welcoming students, staff and parents. The Video Presentation began with a You Tube Video about the March on Washington with the song “We Shall Overcome”. It was followed by the U2 song and video about Dr. King and a short video of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” Speech. Fifth grade students introduced a biography presentation, Martin Luther King Jr. Poem and excerpts from Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech”. Following the fifth graders appearance, a school Sing-A-Long was performed by a Select 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade Chorus. Dr. Toscano concluded the assembly with her closing remarks followed by a slide show about equality and kindness. What a wonderful way to end such a magnificent tribute assembly. As always, we thank Mrs. Halber-Romano, our vocal music teacher, for her countless hours spent preparing students for this performance. You have outdone yourself again with your dedication to our children.
For Cranberry Day, the third grade children rotated through 6 stations, where they completed cranberry-based activities. These activities included measuring the distance a cranberry will bounce, estimating the number of cranberries in a container, creating cranberry art, tasting different types of cranberries, simulating a cranberry bog, and others. It was a "cran"tastic day!
Although today's weather did not cooperate, Boyd students participated
in the "Halloween Walk" in the auditorium. All classes enjoyed
seeing the grade levels parade in their costumes. Everyone had fun with the events of the
day! Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
Third grade classes got together for a “book tasting”. Classes were paired with another class and students shared things they liked about books they read. Each student got a chance to share with others. They were rotated and were able to “taste” many different books. What a great way to learn about books!
