About Us

Welcome to Blakewood Elementary School!

I hope your experiences at Blakewood reflect my true passion to create a collaborative environment where you feel welcome and are an active participant in your child’s learning and life.

It is my goal that Blakewood is:

  • a place where great learning memories are formed.
  • a school that serves its community and engages parents in a meaningful and rewarding way.
  • a building that reflects students’ learning…showing off what they know, learn, and create.
  • a facility that takes pride in being clean, inviting, and safe.
  • finally, a school that displays a culture and atmosphere centered on respect, responsibility, perseverance, kindness, and honesty.

I listen. I am visible. I am approachable. I care.

Best wishes for a terrific school year for your family,


David Newman
