Announcements

Fundraising Event for Ellie, our therapy dog (All Students)
Love having Ellie, our therapy dog, at blended to greet you and love on you when you need a hug?  We are required to maintain insurance for her and in order to cover that cost, we are asking for your support.  We are selling pizza by the slice on April 18 (THIS WEDNESDAY) and May 9 and all proceeds for these events will go towards Ellie’s insurance.  Remember to bring your cash on these days so we can support our favorite 4 legged staff member!
