THE BLACKWELL FAMILY NEEDS YOUR HELP

            

WHAT:  DONUTS AND DONATIONS to benefit Jenny Lane

 

WHERE:  Blackwell Elementary School cafeteria

 

WHEN: This Saturday, December 16th, 8:00am-10:00am

 

WHY:  Jenny Lane, sister of Blackwell’s Teacher of the Year, 3rd grade teacher Liz Chandler, was injured in a horrible accident this past weekend.  While out walking in the snow with her husband and son, a tree branch fell on her, hitting her in the head and severing her spinal column, which has caused permanent paralysis. Jenny has a long road to recovery, and she and her family need any and all help from Blackwell and its surrounding communities.

 

Individual donuts and donuts by the dozen will be available for a minimum donation.  Additional donations are also welcome.  Please consider stopping by the school, enjoying a donut (or two), and making a donation.

 

SANTA will be here for pictures, too!

 

If you are unable to stop by the school on Saturday but would still like to make a donation, please go to: gofundme.com/loveforjenlane.

 

THANK YOU!

THANKSGIVING BREAK – NOVEMBER 20th-24th

The children are very excited about the  Thanksgiving holiday. We have heard about many of your families traditions and favorite dishes. Chicken nuggets or Macaroni and cheese still seem to be the favorites. There were not many fans of cranberry sauce though. We hope that you have a safe and restful week enjoying your families.

Thank you all for coming to our Blackwell Feast!! The children love having you share this special event. Great memories were made.
