Blanchard School Advisory Council Update
We received three applications from parents interested in serving on the Blanchard School Advisory Council. To that end, MSPTO will be coordinating an online election in the coming days, and a representative will be named by the end of the week.

Visit Blanchard's New After School Activities Page!
Encourage your middleschooler to try one of the 25 clubs we are offering this year; all run by Blanchard staff and open to all students! We've launched an all new extracurricular page to kick off this year's activities! Check it out here: Blanchard Activities. You will find important information pertaining to each specific activity as well as a calendar of scheduled club meetings. Extracurricular updates are also posted under Daily Announcements on the homepage. There is a one-time $50 fee that allows students to try multiple activities. Please return this fee and activities form to your child's homeroom teacher. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you are in need of financial assistance. We do not want financial circumstances to prevent a student from participating in any school activity.

As always, feel free to give us a call with any questions.
