I love the communication folders that the kids bring home! But I found out Dr. Hunt Retired and was replaced by Laura LaCroix...
We came from the Blue Springs district and have found Blackburn to be a great fit for our family. Dr. Hunt is amazing in the fact that he knows pretty much every students name in the school. I was shocked :) The teachers are also great and easy to work with.
Blackburn is a truly exceptional elementary school. Dr. Hunt is one of the nicest, funniest and caring principals I have ever met. The school excels from the laid back atmosphere. Parents are welcome in the classrooms to help out. The PTA is phenominal. Only one fund raiser a year! The PTA decorates constantly and has multiple school parties each semester. I love the communication folders that the kids bring home. I know exactly what is going on in their classroom everyday. We will be moving soon, but I will dearly miss the wonderful, loving and caring nature of this elementary school. I doubt I will find another like it.
All four of my daughters attended Blackburn Elementary. I feel that Blackburn supported students and families educationally as well as socially and emotionally. Blackburn gave my daughters a strong foundation in which to buid their lives and education. My fourth daughter's last day at Blackburn Elementry befor entering middle school was truely a very emotional day for all of us. It was hard to say good-bye to a school that had become a part of our family.
Blackburn Elementary is a great school. I went there from kindergarden to 5th grade. I really enjoyed all my years there. I still go up there and do volunteer work for some of the teachers.
My son has attended this school for 6 years, and has excelled. It is a wonderful school to attend, there is alot of parent involvement and the teachers are wonderful. We are looking forward to our other son starting kindergarten next year.
My children have attended Blackburn for 7 years. The principal is fantastic, the teachers care about each of their students, the students are well-behaved, and my children are thriving. Parental involvement is high.
