Blacklock Blast – June 1

June 1, 2018

This week, the Blacklock staff were treated to an appreciation BBQ lunch hosted by our PAC.  The food was delicious and the beautiful plants that we each received will be a lasting memory of this special day.  A big thank you to all of you!

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Teya K. on taking 3rd place in the Blackout Poetry Contest at the Surrey Children’s International Festival 2018.  You can check out her work at the Poet’s Zone on the Surrey Children’s Festival website in the Winning Selection May 24.  We are so proud of you Teya.

Mrs. Hillier is looking for a volunteer to take care of the classroom guinea pigs for the month of August.  If you think you can help out in this way, please e-mail her at or talk to her in person.
