Blacklock Blast – March 8

March 8, 2019

This week many performers graced the Blacklock stage!  On Tuesday morning, the Brookswood Senior Jazz Band entertained our children with a variety of jazz pieces.  It was good for our students to see what they can aspire to in the world of music.  On Thursday evening, Blacklock’s Got Talent 2019 showcased the talents of many Blacklock students.  Highlights of the show were Glee Club, who opened the show with ‘Be Our Guest’, the Baton Club, who performed to the theme song from Harry Potter, concert violinists, dancers, singers, Kindergarten drummers, and several various acts.

It was a fantastic evening and would not have occurred without the support of our staff, specifically, Mrs. Schmuland, Mrs. Hillier, Ms. Grigg, Mr. Huang, Ms. Lou Lou, Mrs. Leblanc, Mr. Peter, and our parents, who provided the concession.  Through everyone’s combined efforts, almost $1,000 was raised to support Fine Arts initiatives in our school and an additional $131 was raised by the concession to support the Grade 4s and 5s for their Victoria field trip.

The PAC is partnering with ASAP Office Supplies to raise money for our school.  Did you know that you can support our school just by shopping online for everyday items that you buy anyways?  Five percent of each purchase will go back to our school PAC.  For more information, please read the brochure that was sent home with your child today.

The PAC is also fundraising with Purdy’s Chocolatier, just in time for Easter! Paper catalogues were sent home with students, but please note that orders are accepted online only.
