Dr. Justus, Principal


Message - September, 2018

Dear Parents, students, and community,
We hope you have had a great start to the school year! We have sent out interim grade reports, and soon we will be finishing the 1st quarter. That's hard to believe! Students have set academic goals through their Connect class. Please talk with your student to see what his/her goals are and see how you can support those goals. We have plenty of opportunities for support here at school, and if you would like a tutoring brochure, please have your student come by the main office or counseling office to pick one up. 
Students, take advantage of the many opportunities Blackman offers. Please join a club or sport or activity that meets or expands your interests and aptitudes. We care about you as a whole person and will continue to work for you!
Parents, if you need anything, please do not hesitate to call. Make sure you have your parent portal login and check your student's progress routinely. If you have questions about your login or about your student's progress, please call. We will take care of you!
