Blacklock Blast – June 25

June 25, 2020

We are looking forward to our Farewell Car Rally tomorrow, leaving Blacklock Fine Arts’ parking lot at 9:00am.  This parade will honour the outstanding service of Mrs. Roberta Anderson.  Looking forward to seeing many of you as we drive by tomorrow morning.

HD Stafford will be holding a “Summer Transition to Stafford” program in August of this year.  There will be two one-week sessions with 20 spots in each session, August 17th – 21st and August 24th – 28th.  This is meant for those special kids who need some extra time, really missed out on typical transition times, and need that extra time to connect with HD Stafford and their staff.
