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. Representative owls are pictured in order above: Tasmanian Owls (yellow), Eurasian Eagle Owls (blue), Spectacled Owls (red), and Great Grey Owls (green).  Students attend specials classes by weekly rotation based on their Owl House. See the full schedule each week in The Talon.
