Good Afternoon Blanchard Families,
We have some exciting news to share with you today. Our Blanchard PTO officers created a Square Site to allow you to join the PTO and to pay the membership fee of just $5.00. In addition, you can pay for a school yearbook, buy a t-shirt or donate to the PTO with the Square Site. Please click on the website below to support our PTO.

Olivia Rivera won our school spelling bee and will represent Blanchard at the district level. Edward Boughner is our runner-up and will represent the school if Olivia cannot compete. Congratulations!
