WELCOME BACK TO THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR!
Dear Blendon Families:
Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year! Blendon staff and volunteers have been working during the summer planning and preparing to continue a challenging academic program in a supportive environment. We look forward to meeting all of our new families and seeing all of our returning families during Schedule Pick-Up on the dates listed below.
Back to School information packets were mailed out in July. Schedule Pick-Up dates will provide the opportunity to pay all school fees, obtain class schedules, locker assignments and get School ID pictures taken. You should have already received order forms from HR Imaging in the mail to order additional picture packages if desired. School IDs are required so please make sure your student is prepared to have his/her photo taken. The day for picture make-ups is August 24, 2018.
Please note, the WCS District mandates that all school fees be paid and any residency and/or custody issues be resolved before we are permitted to distribute class schedules prior to the first day of school. If you did not receive your back to school packet in the mail, please contact the Enrollment Center at 614-797-7700 to be sure they have your most up-to-date information.
Computers will be available at Schedule Pick-Up to complete important Emergency Medical and Parent Permission online forms if you have not already completed them on your own through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Regardless of any changes, these forms require your digital signature every school year. Staff members will be available if you need assistance logging in at Schedule Pick-Up or you may contact the school office any time at 614-797-6400.
Food service will be on hand to set up lunch accounts via finger scans and we hope you will visit our PTO station to see what exciting things are going on at Blendon.
Students new to Westerville and sixth graders who did not attend Movin’ Up Night in the spring will have an opportunity to meet the administration of Blendon at a brief information gathering in the gymnasium at 6:00 pm on August 7th. Curriculum Night will be Thursday, August 30th, 6:00-8:00 pm.
We are aware of the high academic expectations and community support that identifies Blendon MS. Increasing the academic achievement of your student at Blendon is our number one priority. Additionally, we encourage students to get involved in clubs and other school activities. It is my honor to be a Bulldog and serve the Blendon Middle School community.
