Our Houses Have Been Sorted! Check with the teacher if you are not sure which Owl House your student picked. It’s time to earn those tickets! Go OWLS!
We are “House Strong!”
Blanchard implements a House system in which every student and every employee is a part of an Owl House. Represented by owls from around the world, Owl Houses can earn points throughout the year. Representative owls are pictured in order above: Tasmanian Owls, Eurasian Eagle Owls, Spectacled Owls, and Great Grey Owls. At the end of each quarter, a mini-celebration is held for the House in the lead. At the end of the school year, the winning House participates in a large celebration. The annual competition further improves our school climate and culture. You can find the scores on our House bulletin board in the front hall and in the Blanchard app. Students can earn House points for the following things: – Meeting AR goals – Wearing house colors on Mondays – Wearing Spirit wear on Fridays – Being named Good Citizen – Caught doing something great – Competitions – No tardies – No absences – Parents participation – Classroom teachers also give them out for various reasons. Sorting ceremonies take place at the beginning of each school year. Students attend specials classes by weekly rotation based on their Owl House. See the full schedule each week in The Talon.
