We are looking forward to hosting our Veterans on Monday, November 11th for lunch. Our students have been expressing their gratitude toward all veterans in art and in writing this week. Here is a sneak peek at their ideas. Thank you, Mrs. Gow and Ms. Valenta, for heading up this celebration.

We encourage all students, staff and parents to wear red, white and blue on Monday!

U-NITE Recap

U-NITE was a great success this year! Blanton had pre-sales just shy of $9,000. We are still finalizing expenses and will know how much of the “day of” sales we will receive in the next week or so. We’ve heard so many positive comments on the event and I hope everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you for supporting Blanton PTA!

We’d like to give a huge shout out to all of our Sponsors!
