Blacklock Blast – March 1

March 1, 2019

Two weeks to go before Spring Break!  This week at Blacklock we celebrated Freedom to Read and Respect & Diversity Week.  The Kindergarten and Grade 1 students also celebrated the fact that we’ve been in school for 100 days!


Teachers, too, have been busy preparing report cards and getting ready for upcoming student-led conferences and parent/teacher interviews.  We would encourage you to read your child’s report card once it’s published at the end of the day on March 8th in preparation for these upcoming meetings with the teacher.  For help on logging in to the Family Portal, please see below.  Please see the Lost & Found Items section below to identify any items that your child may have lost.

House points have been awarded and the current scores are:

Gryffindor – 4,513     Hufflepuff – 4,482     Ravenclaw – 4,479     Slytherin – 4,334


Blacklock’s Got Talent 2019 takes place next week!  Selected students will be performing on Thursday, March 7th, at 1:15pm for the students in the school and at 6:00pm for parents and family members. Tickets are now available for purchase through School Cash Online or at the Office for $5 per single ticket and $10 per family ticket (2 parents and their immediate children).  Please join us to celebrate the many talents of our students!
