February 5, 2016 - Kindergarten Registration
Did You Miss Kindergarten Registration on February 4?
No Worries! Registrations Still Being Taken 

If you registered your upcoming Kindergarten student on February 4, THANK YOU! Doing so helps greatly with planning for the new school year. If you weren't able to register on that day, you can still do so at your home elementary school. If you live in the Ball-Chatham School District and have a child (or children) who will be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2016 please plan to register.  We are requesting that parents/guardians bring the following items:
  • A certified copy of your child's birth certificate
  • A copy of your lease, mortgage or tax bill 
  • Two other pieces of mail with name and current address listed (such as utility bills, cable bill, etc.).
  • Any immunization records you may have (due by first day of school in August)
  • Current physical (due by the first day of school in August)
The registration process will not be complete unless proof of residency is confirmed (either by a copy of a lease, mortgage, or tax bill along with two other pieces of mail with name and current address listed).
Posted January 25, 2016 - Fun Fair
BCGPTO FunFair - Time to Get Your Game On!
We are looking for volunteers and sponsors who are ready to get their game on from Ball, Chatham, and Glenwood Elementary Schools to help us make our event a success. Please fill out this form and return it to your child’s teacher by February 26. If you would like to be on a committee or for more information, you can contact: Angela Wiser at BCGPTO@BCGPTO.org.

Posted January 6, 2016 - Cold Weather Ahead!
Cold Weather Outdoor Recess Protocol Revised
Ball-Chatham principals and superintendent met in December to review current procedures for determining when our schools would hold outdoor recess. Principals had referred to the Child Care Weather Watch chart as a basis for recommending to hold outdoor recess if the “feels like” temperature was 18 degrees or higher. However, after discussion the team agreed to amend the practice to hold outdoor recess if the “feels like” temperature is 20 degrees or higher.
 
As always, when school is in session during these cold winter months please ensure that your children are dressed as warmly as possible (multiple layers), and that outerwear is rated for sub-zero temperatures.
