Bledsoe Picture Day - September 26th

We are scheduled for pictures at Bledsoe on Tuesday, September 26th. Parents can order portraits by filling out an order form and returning it to the photographer on picture day or by ordering online using the school code 1718-0042. When placing orders online, parents will receive an email confirmation which completes their transaction. They do not need to send any paperwork with their child on picture day when ordering online.


Annual Fun Run

Our Annual Fall 2017 PTA Fundraiser, the “Bledsoe Blast-a-Thon”, kicked off today at GMB. The printed pledge packets to promote the event, with instructions, came home a few days ago. Our Theme this year is a Varsity Fun Run! Students and parents are encouraged to show some spirit by accessorizing in your favorite team attire the day of Fun Run! Students will wear their grade level shirts, as well.

In addition to covering PTA operating expenses, programs, and our year-end gifting to Bledsoe, the fundraising campaign will focus on supporting our school's efforts to provide a flexible seating environment to enhance the student learning environment. Together we can help your child have a great school experience this year and for years to come! Thank you for supporting this fundraiser!

Fundraising is not required to win prizes but you must be registered online to participate in prize drawings. Students who register by Monday, 9/25, will get a Fun Run Spirit Monkey BackPack Charm!!!

ABC’s of the Birds and Bees

Does the thought of having THE TALK with your child make your heart pound? Then come have fun while you learn easy, creative ways to talk about this sensitive subject with toddlers to teens from Lori Kuykendall, Executive Director of Aim for Success, Inc.

It’s a fact - children are learning about sex at an extremely early age. The internet, television, movies, and your child’s peers will lead the way in defining your child’s values unless you become proactive and start educating your child about the Birds and the Bees. In this one-hour, motivating presentation, Lori will help you open the doors of communication as you learn to share age appropriate information.
