This system is used by all grade levels (Remembrance Day, Hallowe'en, School
Dances, Choir, Drama, Christmas Program, and the list goes on). It is going to
cost approximately $1500.00 to replace this system. We need everyone to support

*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!
