Just a friendly reminder that if you are interested in ordering your child's school pictures that were taken on September 10th, the money is due into their homeroom teacher on Friday September 17th. If you are interested in having your child's school picture retaken, we will inform you of the retake date as soon as one is arranged.
On Monday September 20th Blackville School will be participating in the Terry Fox Run Fundraiser. There will be a notice sent home to parents today outlining the event details. The students of Blackville are excited to participate for such a great cause and catch the spirit to never give up, just like Terry Fox did. Terry is a legend to Canadians, and the entire education community at Blackville school is proud to be part of his incredible venture that continues still today!

*Parents of kindergarten students were sent a letter in late June indicating what day their Kindergarten child would start school, as we do staggered entry with our Kindergarten classes. If your kindergarten child is scheduled to come to school on Tuesday for the first time, the next day for your child will be Thursday. If your child comes on Wednesday for the first day, they will return on Thursday. All kindergarten students will be here on Thursday!
With the change of seasons and the passing of years always comes change. The Blackville School staff would like to wish all the best to the teachers that are moving on to bigger and better things with the closing of this past school year.
As mentioned before Mr. Muck is strolling into his retirement years and we wish him many years of happiness, even though we know we will still see him roaming the halls on a daily basis. Enjoy your well deserved rest Mr. Muck!
As August quickly approaches, the retail stores are lining their shelves with the obvious signal that the end of summer is near...school supplies!! Please do not fret if you lost the list of school supplies that your child was given in June. Really, who is that organized? You will notice that Blackville School has their list for different classes right in the school supply area at the different retail stores. You might also check the "Teacher Pages" of the different teachers on this website, as some teachers will post this in the document area of their individual page.
Camp Sheldrake is now accepting referrals for their Sponsorship Program for their upcoming summer programs.

References will be checked and each application will be reviewed carefully. Due to limited funding only a limited number of sponsorship opportunities are available. A minimum of $75 towards the full registration fee of $290 is required.
