There’s nothing quite like returning to your alma mater for Homecoming Day, reconnecting with old friends and catching up on happenings in each other’s lives. 

Boyd Christian School is a relatively small private school that started in 1979 as an elementary school. Today it has a graduating class of 12 students and a student body of 140.

Principal Jessica Akers said, “Boyd is having an amazing year thanks to our truly wonderful student body. We are excited to take every opportunity to recognize and celebrate them. Their spirit, dedication to doing their best and their love for one another is what makes this school such a special place.” 

Fun Homecoming activities were held for the students during the week, with spirit week encouraging fun dress-up days. Students enjoyed dressing as twins, being crazy for Manic Monday, wearing pajamas to school, coming up with attire for Thowback Thursday and sporting Bronco attire on Friday. 

Classes either individually or as a group made and submitted wagon floats for a parade inside the school building. Small wagons were decorated in the typical Homecoming fashion, with the Broncos overpowering the Lions from Lakeway High School. 

Float winners included the middle school students earning a first place, second going to the second- and third-grade classes, and third place awarded to students in the fourth grade.  

During the Friday pep rally, ball players and cheerleaders were introduced, before the student body enjoyed a game of dodge ball. 

An afternoon basketball game against the Lakeway Lions started the Saturday activities, with visiting alumni members recognized. 

Following the crowning ceremony, a reception was hosted by members of the Parent, Teacher and Friends Organization in the school cafeteria.       

Homecoming coordinator Jennifer Moore said, “It was a great week for everyone. Our kids enjoyed it, and the families got involved making sure it turned out well.” 

All Boyd seniors are encouraged to participate in the Homecoming ceremony, with those being: Candace Woodruff, Austin Harris, Abby Rhoton, Greg Southard, Jaden Vining, Lane Jones, Jolene Marie Adams and Andrew Smith.  

Abby Rhoton and Austin Harris were chosen by the high school student body, and crowned by first-graders Aven King, Bennett Perry and Anagail Akers. 

Other class representatives in the court included: freshmen Sarah Grace Woodruff and Alex Stinson; sophomores Anna Shrum and Jace Oliver; and juniors Lexi Loader and Joel Smith.
