Clubs at Blackwell!

It has been a fantastic week at Blackwell!  We enjoyed kicking off our 5/6 Sign Language Club, Hands on Art Club, Kahoot Club and Choir Club.  We have had such a great response from students that want to participate, it has truly been amazing.  It is truly a testament that our students want to be part of the community here at Blackwell!  Over the course of the school year, we will be offering over 30 clubs for our students.  Make sure to check your child’s backpack for the permission slips or call our main office with any questions.

Digital Learning at Blackwell

  • We are excited to incorporate digital learning with Chromebooks for fifth and sixth grade students. Students have shared that they feel more ownership of their learning, and are able to collaborate more frequently to deepen their understanding.
