She is currently a 4th grader in Mrs. Anderson’s class.
Even though Blake’s treatment schedule has interrupted her daily routine of school, on good days, when she is feeling up to it, she is always anxious and enjoys getting back to her class and seeing all her friends. Thank you to all the kids in 3M for all the cards they made and goodies that they have sent to Blake. Everything you do always puts a big smile on Blake’s face.
Blake attends CCD (Religious Education) at St. Gabriel’s Church in Saddle River once a week. We would like to give a special thanks to Mrs. Doherty & Mrs. Quinn, our friends and Blake’s volunteer CCD teachers of the last several years. Thank you to her CCD classmates for their letters & pictures of support and prayers.
One of Blake’s favorite sports is soccer! Blake enjoys all her time that she gets to spend with her “SI” soccer team and training with Coach Paul and Bubba!
