Blacklock Blast – March 11

March 11, 2020

This week, Koala T-Shirt order forms went home with students.  This is a fundraiser for the Australia Zoo Hospital.  Orders can be dropped off at the Office and are due prior to Noon on Friday, March 13.  T-Shirts will be delivered when we get back from Spring Break.

We look forward to seeing parents at student led conferences tonight and tomorrow.  This is an opportunity for you to celebrate the growth your child has made this term and set goals for the remainder of this school year.

Thank you to everyone who came out to our PAC meeting on Monday!  I greatly appreciate the generous financial support provided for our students to help cover the costs incurred by the Grouse Mountain field trip.  Below is a link to the PAC Newsletter and PAC Minutes, which contain important information…..please check it out.

Here are the current standings:
Monkeys – 15,365; Parrots – 14,420; Geckos – 15,611; and Jaguars – 14,301.

Have a wonderful Spring Break!  See you on Monday, March 30.

Susanna Eppich, Principal


There are many items that have been turned into our ‘Lost & Found’ box.  We have laid out these items in the hallway outside the Gym.  Please take a moment to have a look if any of these belong to your children.  Anything not picked up by 2:45pm on Friday, March 13, will be donated to charity.  Check out these photos:


This Friday will be the wrap up of ‘Where In The World is Carmen Sandiego?’  The students will be watching the final arrest on Friday morning and it will be available for viewing on our Youtube channel later that evening.  More information can be found on the official website by clicking here —> Where In The World is Carmen Sandiego?
