It was a beautiful morning at BPS as a stunning maple tree was planted in honor of Jensen Jones, a BCS student who unexpectedly passed away in the spring. A ceremony was held to dedicate the tree as Jensen's family looked on. Thank you, Hartford City Greenscape, for the tree.

There have been dinosaur sightings today at BPS! From what we've seen, the dinosaur seems friendly enough... and might even answer to Principal Campbell. We recommend approaching the dinosaur with caution... (It's been a long week!) 😄 #BetterAtBlackford (Photos Provided)

Reminder the all Blackford Primary School Families. Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 18th, is picture retake day. We will also be starting our after school Accelerated Learning. If you signed your student up and they returned the form, we will be meeting with those students directly after school until 4:15 pm. We asked that you stay in your vehicle and enter the main drive at dismissal. We will release your student directly to your car in the same manner we release car riders at the end of the day.
