The 2012—2013 school year got underway on Monday and things are off to a fantastic start.

“We’ve had a very good first week of school,” said Superintendent Dr. Buck Ford. “I am very pleased with the preparations at each of our campuses, and with our students coming to school prepared to learn.”

“I believe we are going to have a great school year.”

High School

“Students easily adapted to their new schedules and started the first week of school with a high level of enthusiasm and excitement for their classes and extracurricular activities,” said high school principal Dustin Barton.

The high school will host a “Meet the Teachers” night on Wednesday, September 5. Parents of incoming 9th graders will meet at 6:00 PM, and all other parents will meet at 6:30 PM.

Middle School

“What a wonderful introduction to a community this first week has been for me,” said new middle school principal Bill Luna. “Blanco is nice and warm even when you are driving through.”

“When you have the chance to settle in, work with parents, teachers, and kids for a little bit, you begin to see how truly wonderful this place really is.”

“If the first week is any sign, we are going to have a fantastic year at Blanco Middle School.”

The middle school will host a “Meet the Teachers” night on Thursday, September 6, at 6:00 PM.

Elementary School

New principal Linda Romano said, “I couldn’t have asked for a smoother first week! The staff was everywhere and anywhere they needed to be to ensure children knew what to expect and what to do in a safe and organized manner.”

“Instruction was happening from day one, minute one! In addition, parents have been supportive and patient—some even pitching in where they saw the need.”

“This campus truly gets it...educating children to the fullest extent possible is a team effort!”
