Over the last few years, we have created a Facebook Group where parents and staff members could share information about activities sponsored by PTO, Blackberry Creek Elementary School and the Kaneland School District. The Facebook page is a great place to find reminders about upcoming events and post questions. With everyone’s busy schedules, it is a great place to quickly get the information you need about what is going on at the school.
To eliminate confusion of its purpose and ensure that the page remains a positive source of information sharing, we have established a set of guidelines for the Facebook page. Please see the user policy below.
The Facebook page is a private group page that is only for Blackberry Creek parents, teachers and staff members. Click here to go to our Facebook Group and request to join. Once we confirm you are a parent or staff member, we will grant you access. We appreciate your interest in helping make Blackberry Creek a great place for our kids and the community.
