Halloween Carnival

Halloween Carnival is this Friday, October 28 at 6:30pm, join us for fun carnival games, with prizes and candy, a photo booth, concessions and more! Come see teachers and staff dressed up for Halloween!
Advance ticket sales are now closed, but you can still pay $10.00 at the door.  Pizza is $2.00 a slice. 
Only kids need to purchase wristbands, adults attend free!  All students must have a responsible adult with them. Wristband and pizza tickets purchased in advance will be delivered through Kidmail to your oldest student on 10/26.
Halloween costumes are encouraged, of course!  We ask that you leave at home: masks, guns and scary looking weapons. In addition, Mr. Eaton has asked, in light of recent concerns in the community, that we do not wear clown costumes to the Carnival.
Volunteers are STILL needed to help the Carnival run smoothly!  Sign up HERE for a fun, social and rewarding volunteer opportunity. Middle school and high school student volunteers are also needed and can earn credit toward school volunteer hours. Student volunteers can sign up here: Sign-Up Genius.
Questions?  Contact committee chairs Jennifer Pallet, Trupti Antani. or Mary Blake.

Help Make Trick or Treating fun for All
As disability awareness month draws to a close, we want to make sure that all children can enjoy their Trick or Treating experience.  Please keep the following in mind as you greet Trick or treaters at your door on Halloween:
  • The child that is grabbing more than one piece of candy may have poor fine motor skills,
  • The child that takes forever to pick out a piece of candy may have motor planning issues,
  • The child that does not say trick or treat or thank you may be non-verbal,
  • The child that looks disappointed when they see your bowl might have an allergy or is diabetic,
  • The child that is not wearing a costume at all might have a sensory issue or autism.
Thanks for helping make this a fun event that all kids can enjoy!

Walk to School!

October is Walk to School month at Blackwell.  Walking is such a great way to begin our day.  Did you know that the United States walks the least of any industrialized nation?  The average Australian walks the most, with about 9,695 steps per day.  The average American takes just 5,117 steps each day.  Let's get out and walk with our kids!

Veterans Day Slideshow

As part of our Veterans Day Assembly, we have a slideshow featuring veterans of our Blackwell families. If you have a veteran in your family you would like to include, please complete a family information form (available at school and HERE) and return to Mrs. Sabo with a photo of the veteran by October 31st. The photos do not need to be in uniform, though many are. However, they should be just the veteran. Mrs. Sabo will take photos of the students involved at school. Also, we’d like to extend a special invitation to our veterans to attend the assembly. The assembly is scheduled for Thursday, November 10th at 2:30pm.
