A message from the Principal

At J. Blaine Blayton Elementary we believe in developing the whole child socially, emotionally, developmentally, and academically. We also believe in the power of building meaningful relationships and all staff working together for each student every day.  We love welcoming new members to our Bumblebee family as students move to the area or are relocated due to a parent or family member serving in the military.  . .
