Boyd Elementary is the home of the first PTA organization in Springfield.
In 1913 the Mothers Circle of Boyd Elementary was organized into the Springfield Council of the National Congress of Mothers and Parent-Teacher Associations. Early projects included clean drinking water for the students at recess, an anti-fly campaign, classroom cleanliness and ventilation, skating safety programs, a baby welfare program, and Operation Toothbrush Drill which enabled every child to have a good toothbrush.
The Purposes of the Boyd School PTA:
a. To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community, and place of worship.
b. To raise the standards of home life.
c. To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.
d. To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth.
e. To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education.
These purposes and more about our organization structure can be found in the Boyd PTA Bylaws.
