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.

Join us at Supply Drop-Off/Curriculum Night on August 20th from 4-6pm for an ice cream social.

Recently, Mrs. Reilley (a 5th grade teacher) and her daughter’s Girl Scout troop went to the Ronald McDonald house near CDH to cook dinner for the families staying there. During the visit, they went on a tour and the volunteer guide talked about how money is raised to fund the house. One of those ways is the collection of pop-top tabs.
Her daughter’s Girl Scout troop would like to begin collecting pop-top tabs for this charity, and she’s asking for KBK’s help. If you could collect tabs, it would be greatly appreciated! Tabs can be placed in a Ziploc bag and sent to school with your child. We will also be collecting them through the summer and they can be turned in to Mrs. Reilley at the start of next school year.

Pie face will be introduced this year ($1 ticket), face painting, and a visit from the fire department! Our very own Mr. Fox will be the DJ for the evening! Please bring blankets and chairs for your family.
We need a lot of volunteers to make this picnic run! Please consider donating a small amount of your time to help with games or concessions. If you have a middle schooler or high schooler this is a great opportunity for them to earn service hours! Click below to sign up!
