Blacklock Blast – June 17, 2022

June 17, 2022

After two years of no gatherings, it was wonderful for us all to enjoy Sports Day last Friday!  Thank goodness the weather cooperated.  A special thank you to the PAC for their hard work on the concession stand and for providing all of our students with a hot dog lunch!

Yesterday, the PAC surprised us with a Staff Appreciation High Tea!  Their kindness and attention to detail, ensuring that everything was just perfect, honoured us in a most beautiful way.  A great big thank you from all of us!

A reminder about the Langley Community Day, happening tomorrow, June 18, 11:00am-6:00pm at Douglas Park.  There will be lots of great family activities, crafts, and games.  Come out and support your community!

If you ordered School Supplies for next year through Edupac, the kits arrived today, were distributed to the classrooms, and students took them home at the end of the day.  If you have any questions regarding those orders, please contact Edupac directly at or at 604-532-9766.  If you’d still like to use the Edupac service to buy your school supplies for next year, you can go online to to do so; select city and school, enter ‘3503’ as the Password, and choose the student’s grade.  Alternatively, if you choose to go buy them directly, the lists for next year’s school supplies can be found here –>  School Supply Lists for Grades 1-5 – 2022-2023

Don’t forget about our Strings in Spring Concert at the Langley Community Music School on Monday, June 20 (1:00pm for students only and 6:00pm for family and friends).  We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of all of our violin students!

The Grade 5 Leaving Ceremony will commence at 5:00pm on Thursday, June 23, in our Gym.  Grade 5 parents and families, please pay close attention to any e-mails that you receive from your child’s teacher in regards to this special event.

If your child will be absent from school for any reason, please remember to let us know either by phone 604-530-3188 or by e-mail at

Have a good week!

Susanna Eppich, Principal
