What better way to capture the essence of kindergarten than with the mantra “Live Laugh Love Play!”, beautifully spelled out with our adorable students. A one-of-a-kind portrait of all the kindergarteners and their autographs, this is one that you’ll want for posterity. For a fixed price of $50, you get a copy of the 18 x 24” poster plus a 5 x 7” photograph (matted & framed to 8 x 10”) of the individual kindergartener of your choice. Photographs by Blakely parent Julie Schick.
An all-weather version of the simple, timeless classic game. For a fixed price of $50, you get a treated, varnished, wood-burned round (9-10” x 1” thick) as your board and a baggie of beach rocks (5 each of yellow bees and red ladybugs) hand painted by the 1st grader of your choice, to use as X’s and O’s. The whole set comes packaged in a burlap sack with a personalized name tag.
See what our wonderful, budding 2nd grade artists & scientists have done! Every student created a colorful paper beetle, and dubbed it with an original scientific name. For a fixed price of $50, you get a copy of the 18 x 24” group poster (featuring ALL the beetles -- perfect for hanging on the wall) plus an individual 3.5 x 5.5” tin of a beetle specimen of the 2nd grader of your choice (perfect for desktop).
Now that’s a colorful class picture! The 3rd graders have recreated their own strikingly bold, Warhol-inspired Pop Art selfies, coloring with oil pastels on their individual photographs. This year, a fixed price of $50 will get you a copy of the group poster (14 x 22”) as well as a 4 x 4” selfie of the 3rd grader of your choice, mounted on a wooden panel ready to be hung or displayed on your desktop.
What do you want to be when you grow up? As has become tradition, the Blakely 4th graders all contemplated the question, and we received the usual delightful variety of responses. Capture a snapshot in time by making a donation to the Outdoor Ed Scholarship Fund. For a fixed price of $50, you will receive an 8 x 10” photograph of the student of your choice (matted to 11 x 14”). You will also receive a 12 x 24” poster of the entire grade, a wonderful montage of student faces and aspirations that will serve as a perfect souvenir of your child’s final year at Blakely. Special thanks to parent volunteer and professional photographer Alanna Westfall for lending her talents.
Show your Blakely Bulldog spirit with a high quality, unbreakable 14 ounce stemless silicone Silipint.

Lightweight, odorless, and safe in the dishwasher or when bouncing around in the bottom of a sink.
