Blanton Choir Performances
Tonight is the Denton Tree Lighting. Our choir and ocarina groups will be performing in Denton. The Order of the Ocarina will be in the Courthouse on the Square at 6:30 and the Squire Choir will be in front of the Bayless Selby House at 7:00. We know both groups will provide great music for all to hear.
Ethan and Claire also received district honors. Ethan's essay placed 4th overall and Claire's essay placed 2nd in their respective grade levels.
We are proud of their efforts as they wrote from the heart for the Kindness Rocks theme.
Blanton will continue to collect food items for Mission Moms. These food items will help to provide meals for 575 local, deserving families across the districts.
If you would like to help as we partner with Mission Moms this holiday season, please send any of the following items with your child, December 4th – 13th.
We will have labeled collection bins at the end of each grade level hallway.
Boxed Mashed Potatoes
Canned Green Beans
Please contact Stacey Gow at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Sadie's Sleigh Drop Off at Blanton
We are so excited to partner once again with the Sadie Keller Foundation during this special time of year. Sadie’s vision last year was to collect 10,000 toys for the brave cancer fighters in the hospital over the holidays. Last year, Sadie surpassed her goal by collecting more than 12,000 toys with the support of friends, family, our amazing community, and businesses around the area. With your help, Sadie hopes to collect even more toys this year. Sharing the magic of the holiday season positively impacts the lives of those affected by cancer and is a goal dear to Sadie’s heart.
Our school will support Sadie’s Sleigh by collecting new unwrapped toys now through December 13th. A collection box will be available at the front office and in some of our hallways.
Please help Sadie today by donating a new unwrapped toy!
Additionally, the Sadie Keller Foundation would like to invite you and your family to Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 7th at the Harpool Middle School Cafeteria. Details will be posted soon on the Sadie Keller Foundation Facebook page and promoted throughout Lantana.

Thank you for your support!
