Staff Superhero of the Week

Congratulations to Joe Shields for being named the Staff Superhero of the Week. In the words of Bethany Hardesty, "Not only does Mr. Joe work super hard for Blake and all of our staff, but he is a positive influence on all our students. As a teacher/parent, I appreciate that all of our car riders and walkers are greeted with a warm smile and big hello. The first Blake face these kids see is happy they are at school. He starts their day off right! Thanks, Mr. Joe!

PTA Valentine's Dance

Thank you very much to our PTA and staff volunteers for making this year's Valentine's Dance a huge success! Our kids had a wonderful time and we had a huge turnout. Things like this are not possible without the planning and volunteer work of caring adults. YOU ROCK! We have lots of pictures posted on our Blake Elementary Facebook page for you to enjoy.
