Knights in the Know
September 20, 2019
We look forward to visiting with you about this important tool for your child.
Talking to Children About School
Last night's production would not have been possible without our parent volunteers. We extend a special thank you to these parents:
- Mr. Balmos for volunteering his woodworking skills. He met with Mr. Miranda to get a vision of what was needed for the ship and then built it off-site and brought it to school. It was perfect!
- Mrs. Burges, Mrs. Rodgers, Mrs. Rodney, and Mrs. Haddon for their expertise with face painting. Our pirates looked great!
- Allison and Wayne Rodney for their artistic design with our stage. This play was in two acts (one on a ship and one on a deserted island). All of it looked great!
We look forward to Blanton's next musical production!
Reading in Mrs. Kenny's Class
If you are new to Blanton you may not know we have a share table in the cafeteria! Mrs. Dorrell is in charge of our share table. Each day students can "Share" uneaten food from their lunch. Food must be unopened and not need to be refrigerated. At the end of the week she donates the food to Fred Moore Day School Nursery. It also helps stock a small food pantry at the Nursery for families in need. We are reducing a lot of waste in the cafeteria by having a share table. Talk to your student if there are things you don’t want them to share so they know to save them for home!
If you have questions or concerns about this program, please contact Mrs. Dorrell.
Destination Imagination Information Night
Denton ISD will be hosting a Destination Imagination (DI) information night on Wednesday, Sept 25th. Come learn what Destination Imagination is all about. If your child loves solving challenges, enjoys performing, and wants to gain skills to be a team player, creative thinker and confident presenter then DI might be the program for him or her. We are currently putting new teams together for 2019-2020 season and are also looking for parent volunteers to manage teams. These teams compete at regional, state and global levels and is partly funded by Denton ISD.
When: Wed, Sept 25th, 5:30 pm-7:00 pm (Doors will be open 5:15)
Where: Redbud Room, PDC, Denton ISD, 1212 Bolivar, Denton 76201.
What: The information meeting is for parents to come learn about Destination Imagination and see what is involved in having your child(ren) be in a team. We will also talk about what is involved in being a team manager.
Who can particpate in DI: Children from K-12th grade can participate in DI. We are always looking for parent volunteers to manage teams.
