A Beautiful Night

Internacional Night 11.jpg

Friday, October 6th was a special day! 

We celebrated our 4th annual International Night.

It was incredible to see our Ballwin community celebrate all of the wonderful families that hug our school each day.

Diversity means more than multiple cultures in one space, it means that we embrace our differences and unwrap the beautiful gifts we bring to the world.

"DK"

​​

DK 2nd 1.jpgThe Rockwood School District is very…very...fortunate to have a Superintendent that makes it a point to visit each and every school in our district. 

Dr. Knost paid us a visit this week and our students were excited to see him. For the last four years, our students have come to know him as “DK.” He was greeted with hugs and high-fives.

Together, we walked through each Ballwin classroom and saw all 500 students. It was remarkable! I am not sure how Dr. Knost finds the time to visit all of our schools with such a demanding schedule, but he does, and we are grateful! 

Our students love seeing, “DK!"

True Leadership

Gladra.jpg

I am always amazed by our students. They have such giving hearts, and they love helping those in need. 

This Ballwin leader is no different. As you know, we have been raising money for hurricane victims with our “Hats for Hurricanes” campaign. Students who donate a dollar can wear a hat and the proceeds will support hurricane relief in Texas and Florida. 

On the other hand, this leader wanted to do more. Last weekend, she worked for nearly four hours raising money for hurricane victims with her lemonade stand. Her heart and hard work paid off! She raised $50! We are so proud of her. This leader used her resources and influence to help others….which is true leadership! 

Her thoughtfulness is very impressive! 

We are fortunate to have her in our school!

Bright Future

I have to highlight this Ballwin Leader! I am so proud of him. 

He follows our school expectations and does his best each and every day. 

According to his teacher, he is "thoughtful and compassionate.”

He is positive, energetic, and a role model to his classmates.

We are fortunate to have him in our school! This Ballwin Leader has a bright future.

Character Day was fantastic!

Our students got the chance to learn from other teachers and synergize with other students.

They learned about valuable character traits that will last a lifetime! 

Thank you for all of your support with this day.​

Character Day
On Wednesday, September 13th, our school will be celebrating Character Day, KDG-5th grade. Our students will be learning about character traits such as self-control, kindness, teamwork, and growth mindset. It is going to be an amazing day! 


Also, our grade levels will be partnering together to learn about these character traits. KDG and 1st; 2nd and 3rd; and 4th and 5th grade will learn, eat lunch, and have recess together. 


Since we will be eating lunch outside, please send your child to school with a sack lunch and a towel/blanket. Students will be sitting on the ground and eating with their friends, and the towel/blanket will ensure they will be comfortable during this time.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Again this is going to be an exciting time for our students.

Parent Pick-up for Early Dismissal Days

Ballwin’s Early Childhood dismisses their students from 11:25 am-11:40 am. On early dismissal days, the Ballwin Elementary west parking lot is closed to Ballwin Elementary parent pick-up prior to 11:40 am.  All vehicles picking up students must form a line in the Ballwin Athletic Association Parking Lot. There will be a barricade where the line forms. 


At 11:40 am, vehicles in line may enter into the school parking lot and proceed to the lane adjacent to the building.  It is imperative that vehicles pull as far forward as possible to ensure an efficient drop-off process for everyone. Thank you for your cooperation.

3 Pillars

​​​​​Amy C.jpg

It was a pleasure seeing all of you on Curriculum Night! 

Our team works hard to make sure your child is receiving an excellent education.  As a school, we focus on collaboration, intervention, and leadership.

I personally believe these three pillars will drive our school forward for the foreseeable future. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher. We are here to serve you and your family.
