BHS 100th Anniversary Celebration of the Arts at Boardman High School

As you may already know, this year is the 100th anniversary of the Boardman Local Schools! A “Celebration of the Arts” is being planned for January 20th, 2018 at 6 p.m, and as an one of the area's largest visual arts department, we have lots to celebrate! Current K-12 students will have artwork on display commemorating the past 100 years in the Boardman Schools. Along with the visuals arts, Band, Orchestra, Choral and Drama will all be represented with performances throughout the night. The Art Department thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to showcase our Boardman Alumni artists as well, so we are organizing a BHS Alumni Invitational Art Show. The exhibition will be on display January 20th, 2018 in the lobby of the Boardman Fine and Performing Arts Center. Please see the form for more information concerning the Alumni Show, and all necessary steps for entering. Please email Alyssa.Birch@boadmanschools.org with any questions or concerns. We hope to see everyone there!

Our Emerging Leaders volunteered at Habitat for Humanity on October 28th. We had 17 students there who helped paint and sand walls, assemble flooring, put in the flooring, complete trim work, clean, and other various tasks. The home, located on Erskine Avenue in Boardman, is being prepared for a family who moves in this November. What made this volunteer opportunity special was that they taught students everything beforehand so they learned how to do things properly. The students might have had no prior knowledge of how to install flooring, but by the end of the day, they knew how. It was also important for us to give back to a family in Boardman.

Principal's Message

Cindy Fernback

Happy November, Spartan Nation! 


It’s hard to believe that we have concluded our first nine weeks and are headed into the second nine weeks and the busy holiday season.   During the first nine weeks, many wonderful events took place at Boardman High School. 


We celebrated our 5th Annual YES Fest on Friday, October 20, 2017.  This year, we ventured in a slightly different direction for the first time by hiring a speaker who was not homegrown.  We invited Nick Scott to be our only speaker.  He is a disabled professional bodybuilder champion, a wheelchair ballroom dance champion, and an inspiring motivational speaker.  The students absolutely loved his speech, and the enthusiasm for him was the greatest our YES Fest has ever seen.  He encouraged our kids to be their true authentic selves, to develop a clear vision of what they wanted to create in their lives, and to be empowered with a positive mindset—regardless of the difficult circumstances or situations in which they find themselves.  This message of embracing the positive is the cornerstone of our YES Fest and a perfect introduction to the Community Festival that we have in our gymnasium immediately after the speech.  In that festival, we had over 50 community agencies join us and share their mission with our students.  Not only that, but the students were encouraged and challenged to sign up with one of those agencies to become a young volunteer.  We truly believe that just saying no to drugs is an incomplete message.  It needs to be paired with encouragement to invite more positive activities into our lives.  We hope our students find a charity that speaks to their hearts, and they make the commitment to give of their time.  Boardman is an amazing community, and connecting our kids to this great community in a spirit of service is a valuable gift—for our kids and for our community. 


Carrying that message of community service through our entire school year is our Emerging Leaders group, under the advisement of English teacher, Mrs. Safarek.  This club meets year-round and truly transforms the idea of service into the action of volunteering—turning the “talk” into the “walk”.    Each month, students meet for a lesson on leadership, or a presentation from a community leader.  Then, the students, along with building and district staff, venture out into the community on a Saturday to do some hands-on volunteering.  In September, a group of 35 students and staff took part in The United Way Day of Caring, and spent their free-time cleaning up a neighborhood on the East Side of Youngstown.  In October, a group of about 20 students and staff spent a Saturday volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.  This group of young volunteers learned how to put down a laminate floor, sand drywall, and prime and paint a new build in Boardman.  There are many more activities planned for the school year, so please encourage your student to get involved!!


Homecoming 2017 was an enormous success, with nearly 700 students attending and taking part in the festivities.  The theme this year was “Fall Ball” and the decorations were beautiful autumn mums, corn stocks, and pumpkins.  Our advisor, Mrs. Matiste, did an outstanding job organizing this large event.  The students looked stunning, and they behaved just as we expect them to as young adults.  A big thanks to all who helped make Homecoming 2017 an incredible success.


Looking forward, we will have our first conference night of the school year on Tuesday, November 21, 2017, from 3:15-8:45.  Conference night is an excellent opportunity for parents and teachers to communicate directly.  Nothing is more beneficial than direct communication, and this face-to-face meeting is just that opportunity.  Please call and schedule a conference with your child’s teachers.  You may call 330-758-7511, ext. 61010, to schedule your conference through Friday, November 17, 2017.


Finally, I want to wish all of you a very peaceful, love-filled Thanksgiving holiday.  I hope you enjoy the gift of family and delicious food.  I hope your homes are filled with joy, laughter, and love.  And always, I am grateful for all that you parents do for our school all of the time.


In sincere thanksgiving,

Cynthia M. Fernback

Principal BHS
