A picture says a thousand words. Here are some photos of the highlights of a very busy and happy week at Blacklock. Thank you to Mrs. Anderson, who led the charge to Victoria, along with the dedicated Grade 4 and 5 teachers and a devoted group of parents. By all reports, this was one of the most successful Victoria trips yet and I’m sure has created lasting memories for our students. Operation Waterproof wrapped up last Friday. I’m hoping that if I ever find myself in difficulty in one of the beautiful lakes of BC this summer, that one of these trained Grade 5s will be there to rescue me. This morning began with an outstanding dance performance by Momenta, the HD Stafford dancers, and Amy Hamilton’s Dance School. These photographs do not do the show justice, but to say that we were inspired and entertained only begins to communicate what we felt. Thank you to all involved. Then, to make this Friday even better, our amazing PAC Moms hosted a fantastic staff appreciation lunch. The tacos would give any Mexican restaurant a run for their money and the fact that these were created with such love made them taste even better. Next week marks a thirteen and a half day countdown to the end of the year. I saw a Facebook post this morning that said ‘most months have 30 or 31 days, but for educators June has 1,284’. LOL! They’re yours in 13.5 !!!! Have a great weekend! Got to say, I love my Blacklock family!
