Parents of Afternoon Car RidersWe are asking that you leave your child's name tag VISIBLE until your child is safely in your car. This practice will allow the duty personnel who are on the curb a visual and assistance in calling and helping your child into the car each afternoon. This will make for a smoother, quicker dismissal. Thank you for your assistance.
I am sure by now you have heard, I will not be returning to Blaney for the 2018-19 school year. I have accepted the position of principal at Woodruff Elementary School, in Spartanburg School District 4. This is an opportunity for my wife and I to live closer to two of our children who have settled in the upstate. I will forever be thankful to the Blaney community for your support and love over the past five years. I am excited about the growth we have made and will watch to see how much farther the next principal will carry you. I truly believe that Blaney is the Heart of Elgin.
It is the time of the year for us to prepare for 2018-19 school year. If you would like to request a specific type of teacher for your student, please follow the following directions: 1) Do not request a specific teacher by name, 2) list the characteristic of the type of teacher your child needs, and 3) do not tell me a teacher you do not want (unless there is a past family or personal issue that I should know about). If there is a student you child should not be in class with please inform of that as well. You can email me firstname.lastname@example.org, call me at 803-438-3241, mail a letter to 1621 Smyrna Rd, Elgin, SC 29045, or set up a face to face appointment.
