Dear 8th Grade Families,
As the 2019-2020 School Year comes to a close at Blendon, we can say unequivocally it has been a year of unique circumstance and unprecedented experiences.
Congratulations and gratitude go to our Blendon staff, teachers, students and families for working together to achieve academic and personal success in spite of challenges we have encountered in the face of an unknown distance learning environment. Together we have navigated unchartered territory with determination, dedication, and kindness in order to maintain the high standards that define Westerville City Schools and our Westerville community. We have addressed student needs regarding education, emotional well-being, and physical health. We are especially grateful to our amazing Blendon PTO! They have consistently gone above and beyond to support Blendon Staff and students throughout the entire school year in spite of any obstacles.
While the future remains uncertain right now, we assure you that Blendon Middle School will keep you informed as new information and guidelines become available. Get the latest most up to the minute information on our district website at wcsoh.org.
Meanwhile, we still recognize and celebrate our Blendon Pride marked by successful fall and winter athletic seasons, quarterly Renaissance celebrations, Students of the Month recognitions, our Winter Bulldog Breakfast, another year of record-breaking ticket sales for our Drama Club production of Music Man Jr. and many of our students being recognized for various achievements in STEM projects, Geography Bees, writing contests, Spelling Bees, MathCounts competitions, and the list goes on. We also take pride in the many successful community service projects completed that were led by our National Junior Honor Society, Builder’s Club/Student Council, and G3 Club. While we proudly recognized our 8th graders in a virtual version of our annual Evening of Honors event, we also look forward to recognizing the academic achievements of our current 6th and 7th graders when school resumes in the fall.
It is with pride, gratitude, and reflection of an unprecedented time that I wish everyone an enjoyable summer break with family and friends in the safest manner possible.
Mr. Harris, Principal
