To help cover the cost, we are looking for businesses and families who would like to have their name or logo placed on the back of each t-shirt. This is a great advertising opportunity and will be printed on approximately 1000 T-shirts.


Please support our school and become an advertising partner.

All sponsors will receive a complimentary T-shirt!

Deadline is August 18th

Space is limited! Names & logos will be selected on a first come first serve basis.

The T-shirts will have a Blaney Logo on the front and one color sponsorship logos/text on the back.

Weclome Back 2017-18 School Year

Welcome Back!

This time of year always comes with a flurry of activities, anxiety, excitement, and maybe even a few tears.  As a mom of three, I am experiencing all of those things, especially realizing my oldest is now a 5th grader and wondering where it all went.  I’m sure like me, you’ve been making preparations and saying goodbye to summer fun.  

We hope as you open this new chapter you are looking forward to a great year, just as we at PTA are.  We are ready to rock and are excited about a great year with lots of opportunities for you to participate in your child’s elementary experience.  

We hope you will join us this year in PTA by becoming a member and volunteering! You can join through our website blaneypta.com and click on memberships!  You can also find us on Facebook at Blaney Elementary PTA.  Also, we’ve begun an exciting initiative for you to highlight your Blaney kid and how they’re rocking this year at #blaneyrocks.  Take pics of your awesome kids and post online so we can share our awesome Blaney stories within our community!

We hope that you will be able to help us kick off the year by volunteering for some of our upcoming events!
