Blake’s Fun Fair is just around the corner: Saturday, June 10 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Mark it on your calendars!
They’ll be plenty of food, entertainment, games, rides and a silent auction. And if you have some time or talent to volunteer, organizers could still use a hand—see the post below for details. Hope to see you there!
As you know, the Blake Fun Fair is coming up on Saturday, June 10 from 11:00-3:00. The Fun Fair is an amazing community event and is our school’s biggest fundraiser. We truly CAN NOT do it without your support. In order to make this day a success, WE NEED YOU!!
You should have received a form on your child’s Friday folder, but if you did not, you can still volunteer. You can download the form (Blake Fun Fair volunteering), and then you can either print it, fill it out, and send it to your child’s teacher OR you can fill it out and attach it to an email to either of our wonderful volunteer coordinators, Jodie Church and Erin Barr ( or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Remember, to make the FUN FAIR a success on June 10th, we need many hands to help. Please sign up for a 1 or 2 hour shift if possible!

Ms. Paton’s Grade 3 students practiced for four months on this TDSB chorale project. The We Are One Jazz project performed April 19 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts, featuring students from Blake, Earl Haig, Earl Beatty, Gledhill and Equinox, plus the We Are One band and special guest/jazz legend Barry Harris.

Blake is hosting Edmonton author Natasha Deen at the school on Wednesday, April 19.
Deen writes books for children and young adults, mixing “mystery, action, and creepy with a whole lot of humour,” as she describes it. She writes stories to help kids “find their inner superhero.”
Deen will be speaking to students in kindergarten through grade 3 in the gym April 19 at 9:05 a.m., followed by a presentation to grades 4, 5 and 6 students in the library at 10:15 a.m.
Deen’s books are for sale, and if the school community orders over $150, we get a $20 per cent discount and free shipping. What a deal!
Have a look at Deen’s books here and let Blake teacher/librarian Kelly Dyment (email@example.com) know by Friday, April 21 if you’d like to place an order.
Reminder that Parent Council meeting is this coming Thursday. Please come and add share your ideas. Childcare and dinner are included.
