Parent involvement is a big part of student academic success at Blanton Elementary.
The school hosted its second annual cultural night celebrating the Day of the Dead to bring families together and celebrate the diversity of the school community. This event allowed the Blanton families an opportunity to work together on crafts, poems and celebrate the lives and legacies of those who have passed away.
“We feel it’s very important that Blanton is not only a place for students to succeed academically, but that it’s also a place for families to come together,” said Alicia Iwasko, math instructional coach at Blanton Elementary. “We are really excited that everyone gets to experience this colorful and joyful tradition.”
