On Friday, Ballwin Elementary was awarded as a National School Of Character. This is a big honor and I am so proud of our staff and students. Earlier this year, we were awarded as a Missouri School Of Character by the same organization, Character Plus. To receive both recognitions in the same academic school year is remarkable. Our school continues to amaze me with its potential. We are truly the best!
On Friday, April 27th, our Ballwin Leaders participated in the Special Olympics at Lafayette High School. It was a joy to watch them compete, have fun, and make new friends. If you have never been, it is an experience like no other. It was a wonderful event, and I am glad I had a chance to experience it. I am so proud of them!
This week, our students had the chance to meet their new principal for the 18-19 school year! Mrs. Chris Davis spent a full day here and it was so much fun! It is going to be hard to leave this wonderful...wonderful school. However, I am more than pleased to pass the torch to Mrs. Davis. She is energetic, fun, and smart! She loves kids and wants to be the principal of Ballwin Elementary. I know, for years to come, our students will love and embrace her the same way they have embraced me. As we get closer to the end of the year, Mrs. Davis will be spending more time at Ballwin. This is an exciting time for our school and community.
On behalf of Ballwin Elementary, I want to thank you for your support of #ThisIsBallwin Day! It was a wonderful day and will be remembered for students showcasing their leadership to our community.
The energy and passion our students have is second to none and it is an honor leading them each and every day. Believe it or not, they are teaching us as much as we are teaching them.
Thank you for your continued support, and enjoy conference week!
I have exciting news! Ballwin Elementary has been awarded as a Missouri State School of Character! We are proud and honored for the recognition! I believe it is a representation of our hard work and dedication to help our students discover the leadership they have inside.
This is an exciting time for Ballwin Elementary, and the best is yet to come!

WE ARE THE CHAMPS! Our Elementary Team (Ballwin, Ridge Meadows, and Woerther) defeated the Middle/High School Team in our 8th annual Braggin' Rights Game.
I would like to thank Selvidge Middle School for hosting a remarkable community event that brings elementary, middle, and high schools together for an exciting night.
The game was awesome, and I was honored to be part of something like this.
Lastly, we need to be ready, I know Selvidge and Marquette will be ready to play again next year!
On behalf of Ballwin Elementary, I would like to wish our community a Happy Holidays! This will be a time to relax, rejuvenate, and refuel.
We had an outstanding 2017, and we are determined to have a better 2018!
Thank you for the support. Ballwin Elementary truly...truly appreciates it!
Take care and enjoy...
