SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER!
Dear Blendon Families,
Thank you to our teachers, staff, students, and especially our Blendon families & community members for working together to close out this 2018-2019 school year. Grade cards were mailed out on June 6, and new information for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year will be mailed out the end of July.
Blendon Pride was marked this year with quarterly Renaissance celebrations, Students of the Month recognitions and many of our students being recognized for various achievements at our Evening of Honors event. Successful family events included Muffins with Mom, Donuts with Dad, and celebrating many of our students’ sense of pride and their ability to make us smile with family members at 2 Bulldog Breakfast events. We are also proud of our students who were recognized for participating in various events such as the Spelling Bee, Black History Month, Battle of the Books, Laws of Life Essay Contest, Mock Trial, District Chip Challenge, Chess Tournament, and the list goes on. Blendon’s Drama Club performed it’s first musical, “Seussical Jr., the Musical”, selling a record number of tickets, well over 1000. And lets not forget the many community service projects led by our National Junior Honor Society, Builder’s Club/Student Council, and G3 Club. Finally, we celebrate another successful and rewarding year for Blendon athletics throughout the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Special congratulations to our 7th Grade Girl’s Softball team who ended their season undefeated!
Looking ahead, you will receive a back-to-school packet in the mail the end of July that will include important dates and information for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. Meanwhile, please be sure to read an important letter about start dates and a new cell phone policy for the 2019-2020 school year attached below.
It is with pride and gratitude, I would like to wish everyone a safe, relaxing, enjoyable summer break with family and friends.
