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. Camp Sheldrake believes that every child deserves a rewarding summer camp experience and they strive to ensure greater access for those families truly in need. 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.
The week of May 30th to June 5th has been declared Disability Awareness Week by the Premier's Council on the Status of Disabled Persons. Blackville School is one of many schools in District 16 who are participating. The theme is "Yes We Can" and the aim is to promote support for persons with disabilities in New Brunswick. Disability Awareness prizes are being presented at our district elementary schools and Blackville Elementary will be participating in the "Walk and Roll" event on Friday June 4th.
This year's annual District 16 Track and Field Meet at JMH will be held on June 23rd this year. The buses will be leaving the school directly after our morning announcements as the meet will start at 9:00 am, and finish at approximately 1:00pm. Parents are more than welcomed to come and cheer on their children. We ask that all students are well supplied from home with sunscreen and water for this day as many years before have been extremely hot. In addition to the sunscreen and water students must also bring a bagged lunch for this even because there will be no canteen available.
