Blacklick Elementary Parent's Corner


By Principal Kristen Groves

On behalf of the Blacklick Elementary staff, it is truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you. My name is Kristen Groves and I am honored to serve as the principal of Blacklick Elementary. I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know your child and your family as we begin the school year. I will work diligently with you and our staff to continue to foster a learning community that promotes excellence for our children. I would like to personally invite you to become involved at Blacklick. I sincerely believe that educating students is a team effort and that by working together we can make a positive difference in your child’s life.

The staff at Blacklick Elementary believes in a child-centered philosophy. Teachers meet the individual needs of each child with a strong academic focus. Time on task is emphasized with the goal of using all instructional time as effectively as possible. Quality work is emphasized as students engage in hands-on learning experiences and work together cooperatively. These opportunities challenge them to be problem solvers and critical thinkers. The Blacklick pride expectation encourages all students to take pride in themselves and their school. Our parent/teacher organization, Pride Partners, is very active with parents being involved in and outside of the classroom.
