Blacklock Blast – November 22

November 22, 2019

Please come out and support our 4th Annual Holiday Craft Market tomorrow from 10:30am to 3:00pm in our Gym.  There will be over 40 vendors, concession, door prizes, raffle, kids craft table, photo booth, and free admission.  Please enter through the exterior Gym doors between the school and the portables.

Congratulations again to the very talented artists who designed this year’s House logos.  Your child’s House T-Shirt will be given to them on Tuesday morning at a Spirit Assembly, where we will acknowledge Trent, Ella, Kady, and Sienna.  Please take care of this shirt and watch for future updates in the Blast as to when your child should wear it again for House points.

Points have been added to each of the houses.  Here are the current standings:
Monkeys – 4,728; Parrots – 3,902; Geckos – 3,710; and Jaguars – 3,738.

Remember………a new Blacklock Bedtime Story will be posted on:  Youtube: The Mischievous Librarian every Thursday night at 6:00pm.  Be sure to check it out!  If you haven’t watched previous episodes, they can be found there also.

Have a great weekend!

Susanna Eppich, Principal

We would appreciate any donations for our Christmas Store, which will be running December 3 & 4.  This initiative serves a dual purpose: offering children the opportunity to buy a gift for their family members at a reasonable price as well as using all funds raised through this endeavour to provide some needy families in our school community with a Christmas hamper.  Volunteers are always welcome and so are the much needed gifts to make this a success.  Please watch for information coming home soon.  Our Christmas Concert will take place on December 19 at 6:00pm and all are welcome to attend!  Our annual Pancake Breakfast with Santa will take place on Friday, December 20, commencing at 9:00am.  Volunteers are also needed to help with the many tasks involved.  Please let the office know if you can help by volunteering at any of these events.
