Principal's Message

Approaching the halfway point!

Hello Bulldog Families!

As we approach the halfway point for Quarter 3, we look forward to hosting second semester Parent/Teacher Conferences on February 15 & 22. Please schedule a time to meet with teachers through the My Conference Time online link or reach out to teachers directly if there are any concerns about your student’s overall progress and wellbeing.

With so many things going on in our world today, we are aware that achieving academic success means we must be equally committed to addressing the individual needs and overall mental health of our students. It is our goal to ensure they have every opportunity to thrive in a safe, caring, and supportive learning environment. I want to be sure our Blendon families know that we take our role seriously, by having partnerships in place through school, community safety agencies, and mental and physical health agencies.  Every Westerville school building is prepared to provide social-emotional support services to students and/or refer families to numerous community agencies when necessary. Our Blendon School Counselors are always available to you and are knowledgeable about such services. They are also a good point of contact if you have concerns for others who may need additional support.

The District is fortunate to have a strong partnership with Concord Counseling Services. Our middle school has its own full-time Prevention Clinician in the building. At Blendon, Nicole Rhoads is here to promote positive behaviors such as academic organization, emotional awareness, stress management,self-esteem and confidence, problem-solving, social skills, and communication.  Concord can provide further assistance if additional support is deemed necessary.  Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you or someone you know needs extra support.

 

Sincerely,
Mr. Harris

Go Blendon Bulldogs!
