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 ensure a positive, safe, and academically sound environment in which we have all continued to grow this 2017-2018 school year. Grade cards were mailed out on June 7, and new information for the upcoming 2018-2019 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 Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Invention Convention, Renaissance Festival, Black History Month, Battle of the Books, Laws of Life Essay Contest, Mock Trial, District Chip Challenge, Chess Tournament. Blendon’s Drama Club knocked our sock off this year with nearly 100 participants and 3 amazing performances of “A Night of One Acts” this year. 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.
Looking ahead, there are important dates and information included in this last newsletter that will help prepare you for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. Meanwhile, it is with pride and gratitude, I would like to wish everyone a safe, relaxing, enjoyable summer break with family and friends.
