Blacklock Blast – November 30

November 30, 2018

This week we did an emergency evacuation drill, where parents were asked to pick their children up from the field, and I am pleased to report that this went extremely well.  The building was evacuated in record time.  Parents calmly and quickly collected their children from the field.  We appreciate your support in preparation for a real-life emergency.  Thank you to all of you who supported our school at the Craft Fair that took place last Saturday!  It was a successful event and a special thank you goes out to those of you who helped organize, set up, and clean up afterwards.
Once again, we would like to remind you to please dress your child appropriately for the winter weather.  We are expecting cooler temperatures this coming week and students need to be wearing coats, gloves, hats, boots, etc. as we will be going outside during various activities.


As a unique Christmas opportunity, the Office is selling some chocolate covered large sour keys for $5.00/package of four.  These make great stocking stuffers, so if you’re interested in taking advantage of this, please stop by the Office to buy one, or two, or three, or ……..


During the month of December, we would like to show the Philosopher’s Stone (the first Harry Potter movie) to Divisions 5 through 8.  The dates for these viewings will be on Tuesdays (9:15-10:00am) and on Thursdays (2:00-2:45pm).  If you do not want your child to see the movie, please e-mail the principal at so that we can make alternative arrangements for your child during that time.


Our Christmas Store happens on December 4 & 5…..for more details, go here –> Christmas Store

Please sign up on the doodle poll below if you can help with Christmas Store! 🎀 Mon, Dec 3 is setting up tables and gifts in the gym, Tues and Wed during school are selling and wrapping gifts, and Wed after school is putting the gifts and tables away. Thanks! 🎄


We have extra calendar magnets available.  If you would like an extra one, please come by the office to pick one up.

There are two more weeks to go before Term 1 Report Cards are published online.  We would encourage you to try to login to your MyEd BC Family Portal Account as soon as possible.  This will ensure that you can get online and are ready to access your child’s report card on December 14.  If you have any trouble getting online, please feel free to contact the office for assistance.  For help on how to login, click here –> Reminder-Family Portal-Report Cards-Dec14,2018 and here –>  SD35 Family Portal
