INSTRUCTIONAL PACKET DROP-OFF DAYS:

Hello Blanchard Families,

Our packet drop-off will occur on April 30 and May 1; and May 7 and May 8 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. We will collect assignments from your child’s learning packet on Thursday, April 30 and Friday, April 24. Please separate your child’s work by subject area and place it back in the original envelope, if it is still operable at this time. In addition, please write the teacher’s name on each envelope to assist the grade level members with sorting the packets by teacher.

During this process, large bins will be located near the bus loading dock by the gym for you to drop off your packets.  Please place your child’s completed learning packet in the appropriate bin based on their grade level. Your continued support and patience is greatly appreciated as we implement this new process.

Warmest Regards,

Principal Dalton

Reading every day is essential for students to acquire new knowledge and experiences from books. A student who reads 20 minutes a day at home will hear approximately 1.8 million words per year. We would like for each of our students to read at least 20 minutes per day at home. Reading may be any material the student selects to read at home. It may be silent reading, reading to a parent/ relative or friend.
