Blackwell First Annual Charitable Walk- Walk for a Cure to Support JDRF

Blackwell’s first annual Charitable Walk began with an all-school assembly on Wednesday, May 3.  We began fundraising for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) on Thursday and will continue through May 17th.  Students are not to solicit door-to-door.  Rather, we hope they can ask family or friends for donations. On Friday, May 19th, all students will participate in a walk outside and around Blackwell in support of Juvenile Diabetes.  We hope that our families and community will be able to come out and cheer us on as we walk on May 19th beginning at 1:30pm.

  • Please watch the inspirational video that was created to kick-off to a great cause.
  • We will be walking the path behind Blackwell to the exit at Cloverdale and then turning around.  Please join us along the path to cheer our students on!

PBIS Update

 All Blackwell students learning about remembering to PAUSE before they say or do something and staff and their peers will use the word Pause to remind them to check their behavior.  Please ask them about the Cool Tool they participated in this week!  We are focusing on the key Failure Leads to Success and decreasing the number of disrespect referrals by 20% for the month of May.
