Blochman School Students, Teachers Give Thanks for Gift of New Auditorium Floor

At 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Blochman School will officially honor the generous donors whose tireless efforts and financial support made possible a new floor in the school’s auditorium.

“Our auditorium is really the center of the universe for us here at Blochman School," said Doug Brown, principal and superintendent of the Santa Maria school. "It not only serves as our auditorium, this is our basketball court, theater, community center and cafeteria. Needless to say, it gets a lot of use and has been in need of a new floor for some time.

“We are extremely lucky to have a core group of community partners who support our school. ERG California, CalPortland, Lehigh Hanson, PetroRock Energy and Vaquero Energy all stepped up and made this happen for the Blochman family.

"Students, staff and parents are reaping the benefits of their hard work and generosity.”

The donors will all receive commendations from the students and staff of Blochman School on Tuesday. The ceremony will be appropriately held in the auditorium.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
