Elementary Awards Day 2024

Elementary Cross Country
The elementary students at Blackville School gathered in the gym with family and friends for the year-end awards on Friday, June 21, the last day of school.

Caleb Sturgeon was the recipient of the Ron Pauley Award. This award is given to a student who displays an overall interest and participation in sports while demonstrating good sportsmanship and is a good ambassador for Blackville Elementary.

Grade 2 student Graham Brophy and grade 3 student Mia Fortune were recognized for good attendance which means a student has missed only three days or less. Students who have perfect attendance for a particular month had an opportunity to have their names drawn for a $50.00 gift card. Marion Doyle received a gift card for April, Danika Crocker for May and Brady Hallihan for June.
