Knights in the Know
August 23, 2019
A Day in the Life of a Blanton Knight
There will be two identical sessions offered with a short break in between. This will allow parents who have children at multiple grade levels to participate as well as provide multiple time options to fit into busy mid-week schedules.
We are excited about trying something new and will hopefully meet the needs of our families before we get into the rush of the school year. Because this will occur about a month before our student-led conferences, we hope this will foreshadow the work your child will showcase to your during their conference.
Arrival in the Mornings Updated
Beginning Monday, August 26th, parents who choose to walk their children to class will need to check in through the office. Please have your driver's license ready. Students may still be dropped off in the back by the cafeteria, but no parents will be allowed to enter through that door. All parents must enter through the front. We also ask that students are not let out of their cars in the front parking lot without a parent parking in a designated spot and walking them across the drive by Mrs. Dorrell at the crosswalk.
When students arrive prior to the 7:30 bell, they may go to one of three places at this time: the cafeteria to eat breakfast, the gym to engage in before school activities, or to the library on designated days. Please see the flyer below for the various activities that will be offered in the library on specific days.
The application can be found at www.dentonisd.org/volunteer.
Grandparent's Day - Thursday, September 12th
Students and their grandparents will have breakfast in the cafeteria beginning at 7:00 a.m. When they are finished they are able to go look at books in the Book Fair which is also that week. Grandparents are welcome to walk their grandchildren to class on this day beginning at 7:30 to say their goodbyes.
Lunch with your Child
We recognize the value of parent input and open dialogue with our student's parents. Our focus in each of our Parent Connection meetings is to better communicate our vision and action of supporting and growing your child while they are with us as a Blanton Knight. We invite you to be a part of our conversation and build our bridge of communication from school to home.
Please visit our Parent Connection site to learn about the topics and dates for our first semester. We are hopeful that as many as possible will attend.
