We Need Volunteers
The Blanton PTA is a group of amazing parents and teachers who work together to make our fantastic school even better. There are many volunteer opportunities availbable at this time including Workroom and U-NITE. Please take a moment to check out this link to see how you can serve our school.
Now is the time to get a flu vaccine and protect your family before flu begins spreading in our community. The CDC recommends vaccination by the end of October. See here for more information.
Watch DOG This Week ~ Mr. Draxler
Reflections ~ Look Within
We are proud to launch our Reflections Program at Blanton for the 2019-2020 school year! With positive recognition as the focus of this program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.
This year, the theme will be “Look Within”, and all entries must be created specifically to support this theme. Students can enter any or all of the six art categories. Students may also submit multiple entries within a single arts category.
*To be eligible, one person from the student’s household must be a current member of the Blanton PTA. For a full eligibility description, information on rules, and student entry forms, please visit txpta.org. Entries may be submitted to Ms. Valenta no later than October 31st! Additional questions may be sent to Nicole Marenic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students may explore their creativity through one or more of the following categories: Visual Arts, Music Composition, Dance Choreography, Literature, Film Production, and Photography. The deadline for local submission is October 31, 2019. Entries may be turned in to Ms. Valenta.
