Dear Families, Welcome to Black Hawk Elementary School! Home of the cougars! Black Hawk Elementary School is a small school with a community feeling. We, the Black Hawk staff, feel that it is important that every student and family feels welcome and connected to the Black Hawk Family. We are a Positive Behavior and Support (PBIS) school and believe that actions and behaviors fall under the following three areas of expectations: Be Safe Be Respectful Be Responsible. We, the staff, believe that working together with families ensures that each child reaches his or her potential. We strongly believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the skills necessary for them to develop academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. It is our desire to keep you informed of all the wonderful learning and events that happen at our school. Up-to-date and additional information is sent home through the weekly “Friday Folder,” Class Dojo, and this website. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to communicate with your student’s teacher or call me. Sincerely, Jessica Kanta, Principal 605-787-6701
