Preparing Students for a World of Opportunity

Blackhawk Announcements

  • INTRODUCTION TO THE NEW KINVO ATTENDANCE PROGRAM

    On Friday, January 24, Blackhawk Middle School will begin using KiNVO to enable home-school communication regarding student attendance via text message, email, and phone notifications.

    KiNVO supports two-way messaging so parents can reply to the messages they receive with their own questions and feedback. KinVO also translates into 80 languages, which means parents can read and respond to messages in their preferred language. 

    You do not need to sign up or log into a website to use KiNVO, and you can opt out of the program at any time. 

    We hope you take advantage of this safe and secure opportunity to connect with us directly and learn more about your child's school experience. Please click the links below for more information on this program.

  • EIGHTH GRADE ORIENTATION AT FENTON

    Fenton High School will be holding this year’s eighth-grade orientation program on Thursday, January 23, from 6:30-8 p.m.

    The program will include an introduction, information session, and student speaker in the auditorium, with a separate location and the same program for Spanish speakers. Students and families will then be directed to the fieldhouse, where counselors and division leaders will be available to answer questions. Also in the fieldhouse will be an Electives Fair, which is a chance for students to learn more about the various programs and offerings in the elective areas that are available to Fenton’s freshmen.

    The evening will not include athletics and activities as it has in years past. Instead, a separate Athletics and Activities Fair will be held from 6:30-9 p.m. Monday, April 20, to give organizations more time to develop and provide more detailed information on any summer programming and practices.
