Blacklock Blast – May 27, 2022

May 27, 2022

Yesterday, the school gathered outside and 11 lucky students got to celebrate their classes’ accomplishments with the Readathon by throwing a pie in Mr. Thiessen’s face.  It was wonderful to see the excitement in all of the children and staff!  Thank you Mr. Thiessen for always being such a great sport!

At our staff meeting yesterday, our team agreed to host a Sports Day on Friday, June 10.  More details to come, but you can look forward to a fun day on the Blacklock field, culminating with the traditional Grade 5 vs. Staff Tug-of-War!

The month of June is shaping up to be a busy one, which includes our Strings in Spring Concert at the Langley Community Music School (1:00pm for students only and 6:00pm for family and friends).  Please note the revised date is now June 20.  We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of all of our violin students!  The Grade 5 Leaving Ceremony will commence at 5:00pm on Thursday, June 23, in our Gym.  Grade 5 parents and families, please pay close attention to any e-mails that you receive from your child’s teacher in regards to this special event.

If your child will be absent from school for any reason, please remember to let us know either by phone 604-530-3188 or by e-mail at

Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Susanna Eppich, Principal
