Blacklock Blast – November 8

November 8, 2017

Preparations are well under way for our Remembrance Day ceremony.  This year the students will feature the heroic events that occurred at Vimy Ridge.  The ceremony will begin at 10:30am.


Please remember that tomorrow is also Hot Lunch day and that lunch will begin immediately following the ceremony.  There will be no school on Friday, November 10, as well as Monday, November 13.

For parents of 3 and 4 year old children, the first session of Ready, Set, Learn will take place on November 17 between 10:00am and 11:00am in the Choir portable.  There is no fee to attend, but registration is required and can be done at the office.  Click here:  Ready Set Learn 2017-18

The next hot lunch will occur on November 20 and orders are due in by tomorrow at the latest.

On Tuesday, November 21, students will be dismissed at 1:30pm for Collaboration Day.  Please make arrangements to have your child picked up as there is no supervision after that time.

Nature’s Fare Markets is generously supporting our school by donating back to us a portion of the sales that have come through our families.  All we need to do is collect the Nature’s Fare receipts throughout the year and then they will be submitted to Nature’s Fare by the PAC.

We encourage you to check out PAC eventsFundraisers, and Hot Lunch items on our website, as they are posted there directly.
