Parents! We are so proud of our bears showing character during school. We know that they are doing great things OUTSIDE of school to show their character as well! Dr. Hume is creating a special feature section in the building where students will be showcased and celebrated for showing good character at home. If your bear shows good character outside of school time and you are noticing it, please email what your student did and a photo showing them doing the action. (to Dr.Hume) We want to celebrate our students who are showing good character! See the attachment for a description of our 7 Habit of Happy Kids, which guide our character learning here at Ballwin. Have any questions? Email Dr. Hume at email@example.com. We can't WAIT to see what our bears are doing!
We had a busy week at Ballwin Elementary. On Thursday, we celebrated Veterans Day with our annual assembly recognizing those that served our country. This event, each year is incredible.
On Friday, our students had a chance to spend time with Ballwin’s Chief Of Police, Kevin Scott. We loved having him dedicate his valuable time to our students.

We have some incredible students here at Ballwin Elementary! These students received the P.R.I.D.E. (Proactive and Responsible Individuals Displaying Excellence) Award for their classroom leadership and hard work.
Their teacher stated that they “shine” and are “role models” in our school. I am so proud of their efforts and honored to recognize them.
Check these amazing leaders here!
This was a memorable moment for our school...time flies when you are having fun! Check it out!
Every day at Ballwin Elementary, Principal Dr. Rodney Lewis gives all 512 students a pep talk during the morning announcements.
Today's announcement was a little different as Dr. Lewis went live on Fox 2 News to give the entire St. Louis community a look into the energy Ballwin Elementary exudes.
“We have an amazing group of staff who come to school every day to help students thrive,” said Dr. Lewis, “and we educate the whole student.”
This week we are celebrating living a drug-free life and it is one of the most important weeks of the school year! Here are ways our students can participate:
Each of us at Ballwin Elementary take special pride in our students. They mean everything to us. However, the school year is moving so fast, at times, it is hard for me to wrap my mind around it.
For example, I can’t believe the 2nd Quarter is upon us. It seems like yesterday, we were opening our doors for the new school year. Wow!!!
This week I traveled to SMS to visit with some of our former students. My first 5th grade class is now in 7th grade and they looked so much older and mature. As our students graduate from Ballwin, I hope in the future, they truly understand how much we cared about them, and how much they mattered.
Finally, when they look back at us, I hope they have learned how to lead themselves and live the best life possible.
On behalf of Ballwin Elementary, I am excited that ALL of our students received Ballwin grade level T-shirts this year. It was very important to us that each student received them and had an opportunity to wear a piece of our school. This vision would have never been realized without the incredible efforts of our PSO.
PSO, THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
On Friday’s our staff wear their #ThisIsBallwin gear and we would like our students to join us. Each Friday, have your child wear there Ballwin grade level T-shirt. It would be cool to see all members of our school community showing their Ballwin pride!
We have a Ballwin Leader that went above and beyond. He wanted to give when the time was dedicated to him. This little guy embodies our school and its spirit! Our Ballwin student is a wonderful child with a big heart! Would you like to meet him?
