An invitation to participate in this special lunchtime opportunity will be emailed to you the Friday prior to the week’s event by Mrs. Sheehan.

For Zoomers who would like to participate, please plan to enter the campus at 12:30 through the main office gate where you can complete the Student Health Check form and have your temperature taken.

At the conclusion of the lunch period, you may pick your student up at their designated grade level gate at 1:15.

As we are in the final stretch of the school year, please remember that attendance matters! If your child is a Roomer (in-person), the expectation is that he/she attends in person. Requests for a Roomer to participate in remote learning requires Principal approval. Accommodations will only be made for students in quarantine and/or are exhibiting Covid symptoms. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support.
In education together,

Attention Proud Blossom Hill Families

All orders must be in by today! (We really mean it this time!)
Our Blossom Hill community is a very important part of our lives. The Home & School Club wants to honor our community spirit with a special Blossom Hill Pride t-shirt. Please complete the short order form below to indicate what size t-shirt your child would like. There is also an option, if you wish, to choose to not receive a shirt. If you would like to help offset the cost of the t-shirt, you may choose to donate $5 per shirt. Your donation is completely optional. Thank you!
The Blossom Hill Home & School Club would like to celebrate our 5th Graders by giving them their t-shirts at our promotion celebration. (More details on that to come.). We would like to be able to give all 5th graders a shirt, and ask that you please let us know what size your child needs.
Attention Fifth Grade Families
Get Involved!
The Blossom Hill Home & School Club is looking for adult volunteers who can share their talents and skills with our community. Sharing your time and talents will enhance student education, strengthen our community, and help bring activities and events to life during the 2021-2022 school year. Volunteer opportunities can fit your schedule and can be performed at home or on campus. Take our adult volunteer survey here and we’ll help you find the best opportunity for your schedule and interests. Please also feel free to email Melissa Crow at [email protected] to learn more.
