Blacklock Blast – April 3

April 3, 2019

Welcome back everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break!

Just a reminder that our students are welcome to come inside the school during inclement weather between 8:30am and the first bell.  Grade 4s and 5s can go directly to the common room in their pod and Grade K through 3 are to sit in the hallway outside our gym (as we are currently using the gym in preparation for our upcoming pod show).  Students are reminded that this is a quiet time to read, study, colour, etc.

This Friday, April 5, will be Pajama Spirit Day.  Wear your favourite pajamas to earn points for your house.

House points are:

Gryffindor – 5,154     Hufflepuff – 5,520     Ravenclaw – 5,290     Slytherin – 5,264

Next week on Friday, April 12, students will be dismissed at 1:30pm for Collaboration Day.  Please make arrangements to have your child picked up early, as there will be no supervision after that time.  Also, on that day at 1:30pm, the PAC will be holding a Treat Day ($1.00/treat) and a Spring Christmas sale, all of which will be happening outside by the Gym doors.


Christmas Store Clean Out will be happening on Friday, April 12 at 1:30pm (Early Dismissal Day).  Need holiday decorations? Come check out the Spring Christmas sale.  You will find decorations for every holiday and season (birthday party, Halloween, harvest, Easter and of course, Christmas).  Huge selection of picture frames, DVDs, CDs, movies, puzzles, and games too.  Volunteers needed – please email Cheryl DeFrane at if you can help.


The Blacklock PAC has organized a Mothers’ Day Fundraiser for our school through local Darvonda Nurseries.  Help support them by purchasing a 10 inch hanging basket for $16, a 12 inch hanging basket for $20, or a small “petal pot” potted plant for $7.50.   Orders are due by April 12 and can only be made online through

Pickup will be at the school entrance on April 30 at 2:45pm.


The annual Pub Night Fundraiser, will be taking place on Friday, April 26th, 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Townhall Public House, 19640 64 Avenue, Langley.  Tickets are $25 each (which includes a burger, fries, and a drink) and can be purchased at the Office.
