Blacklock Blast – October 4

October 4, 2018

It’s been a busy week at Blacklock!  Thank you to everyone who came out to the PAC meeting on Tuesday evening.  Your hard work and dedication to plan both fundraising and fun events for our school is appreciated.  Today’s hot lunch, featuring the delicious goodies from White Spot, were served by several of our Moms….thank you to all of you for making it successful!  Just a reminder that tomorrow is a non-instructional day for our students, which will enable you to enjoy an extra long four day weekend!  See you bright and early on Tuesday, October 9!

Please check out our new Outdoor Library, where you can borrow and exchange books for your reading pleasure.

A reminder of our upcoming fourth annual Family Film Festival! This event is based on the 24 hour film festivals that are held all over the world. Participants create a home film based on an inspiration package. If your family would like to participate, you can sign up by submitting $10 through School Cash Online and completing a registration form that will be available in the office between September 24 and October 10th.  On Friday, October 12th at 3:00pm, inspiration packages will be available for pickup in the front foyer by the Main Office. These packages include specific, inspiring directions to follow in the making of your film. Film-making dates for family teams are October 13-14. Finished movies must be handed in at the office on Monday, October 15th @ 9:00am. On Thursday, October 18th at 6:00pm, we will have our exciting Red Carpet Screening Night, which is open to all families of the school.  Concession items will be available and prizes will be awarded to the film makers. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Schmuland or Ms. Lou Lou.

Tickets for the upcoming PAC Pub Night Fundraiser at the Artful Dodger Pub are available at the Office for $20 each.  Proceeds from this event will go towards new video equipment and other fundraising initiatives for our school.

Have a happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone!
