BLESSING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
For our Word of the Day program, students are encouraged to write a sentence using the word of the day and drop it in their grade level bucket in the front hallway each morning for a chance to have their sentence read during announcements! Word of the Day Calendars are given to the students to keep. Don't forget to write your first and last name with your sentence, as well as your grade level!

Campus Updates 09/10/2020
Deliveries & Visitors
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we must limit visitors' access to campus, and therefore, we are unable to accept deliveries at this time. This includes, but is not limited to food deliveries, flowers, balloons, and other celebratory gifts and treats. With Homecoming approaching, it is important for our families to note that we will not be able to accept any deliveries of mums or garters to campus. If a student wants to wear a mum or garter to school, they must bring it with them when they arrive to campus. Thank you for your attention to this matter, and for helping us to ensure the safety of our students and faculty.
Our first Blessing Gazette is available on Mrs. Dodd's website (see the links to the left)!
Progress Reports & Report Cards
The last day of the first grading period is 9/18/20. Progress reports went home with students 9/1/20, and report cards will be sent home on 9/24/20.

Parents who wish for their students to return to face-to-face instruction for the second grading period must notify Mrs. Dodd, campus Principal, as soon as possible so teachers can make preparations for their return. The deadline for this is Wednesday, September 23, 2020.
Be sure to complete the yearbook order form, posted above! The price goes up the longer you wait to order, so order today for the best rate.
Attendance & Truancy
Attendance matters! Once a child is enrolled into school, school attendance laws apply, even if the student is under the age of 6 (Pre-K and Kindergarten). Both the child and parent are responsible for unexcused absences. (Yes, even if your child is 16 years old and skips class without you knowing, you are considered responsible!) After too many unexcused absences, the school is required to notify the parent. A compulsory attendance notification will be sent to the parent if a student has unexcused absences on 10 or more days or parts of days within a six-month period or three days or parts of days during a four-week period. For more information, check out what the Texas Association of School Boards has to say about student attendance, on the document posted below.
Attendance will continue to be tracked for virtual learners as well. Our virtual learners are held to the same expectations as our students who are attending face-to-face.
