Blanton Community Service Opportunity

January 13th – 31st Blanton Elementary will be collecting Preschool/Infant Items to benefit DentonISD’s Fred Moore Day Nursery School/Fred More at Gonzales School for Young Children.

At this point in the school year these schools tend to run low on certain items needed for the infants and toddlers that they take care of each day.

We would like to help restock their nursery this year!!!

If you would like to donate, please send the following items with your child to school.

There will be boxes available in the front foyer for drop off.

Diapers- sizes 3-6


Fitted crib sheets

Formula (all kinds)

baby food ( single fruit and veggies)

disposable sippy cups


paint brushes with thick handles

teethers (cold to necklaces)

lotion (unscented)

q tips

Blankets for naptime

Thank you for helping our Blanton Knights learn to serve our community!

Community Night of STEAM

Blanton students and staff will be a part of the Community Night of STEAM on January 28 at the Greater Denton Arts Council. We love the STEAM activities we do and skills we build at Blanton and will have the opportunity to share this with our greater Denton ISD community on this night.

What are the goals?

  • To provide our students a platform to demonstrate their STEAM knowledge and guide others in completing activities and challenges.
  • To allow members from throughout our community to see the fun things that go along with STEAM learning.
  • To provide educators the chance to try out new resources, get inspired, and get connected.
  • To have fun!!!

We have several groups of 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who will be leading activities that evening. There are groups from other Denton ISD schools and a TWU group as well! If your student is leading an activity that evening, we will be so excited to see you there! If your student is not leading, we want you and your students to come and join in on the STEAM fun, too! Please see the image below to get more information about this exciting event.

Questions? Please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Krutka at

Welcome, Ms. Durham!

It is with pleasure that we introduce Ms. Jensen Durham, our new 3rd grade teacher. Ms. Durham is a recent graduate from the University of North Texas.

Ms. Durham is passionate about teaching children. She believes that the classroom should be a safe, accepting, and fun place that students look forward to every day. Ms. Durham and her students have had a great first week of learning together.

Outside the classroom, Ms. Durham enjoys spending time with family and friends. She loves going to see a movie, spending time outdoors and jogging.
