Photo Re-takes!
November 16, 9:00AM - 10:30AM
Snap! Need a picture redo or was your student absent on Picture Day? Picture retakes will be held on Friday, November 16th.  
Here's what you need to know!
1. Simply return your portrait package to school on retake day. 
2.  If your student was absent on picture day you can still order portraits online. 
3.  VERY IMPORTANT: Be sure to pick up a retake form from the office. This will let your teacher and the photographer know that your student needs a photo taken. 
4.  Order online by going to: www.mylifetouch.com . Use Blackwell Picture Day ID: LS118038Q0 retake.
 
Are you a volunteer and need a badge?
If you are a parent who volunteers - stop by on retake day between 9:00-10:30am, so an "official" volunteer badge can be made for you! These badges are not mandatory to volunteer.
 
If you have questions, please contact LifeTouch at 866-955-8342 or Rachel Timmins (picture day chair) at rgtimmins@gmail.com.

Blackwell Gingerbread House Contest - December 21

Blackwell's Annual Gingerbread House Contest
Friday, December 21! 

 

 

 

You and your child do not need to be expert decorators (note: the gingerbread Seattle skyline image was designed by local Seattle architects - the picture has been provided for inspiration!) or bakers to participate. Kits can be purchased at the store and are easy to complete. You just need candy, frosting, and a little bit of imagination. 

Just bear in mind that your gingerbread creation must be at least 75% gingerbread.  

Every student will have a chance to admire the gingerbread houses and vote for his/her favorite. Awards will be given to the top 3 houses in each grade - and a TROPHY for the overall winner! 


Interested? Click here for the details!
