2015-2016 Mission Statement
As members of Ballardville, we recognize that each student in ASPIRE is unique and different in his or her own way. We promise to:
- help each other learn and excel as a group in class;
- be kind, respectful, and responsible to our teacher, each other, our classroom, and ourselves;
- have a positive attitude, follow the Golden Rule, and make sure everyone feels like they fit in;
- put aside our differences and cooperate with each other respectfully;
- show kindness in and out of the classroom and treat others with care.
We expect our teacher to challenge us in a way that will help each of us excel in our learning. We like to be challenged and to think outside the box.
Our personal expectations are to be respectful and responsible. We will encourage others to be helpful and not hurtful. We will pull each other up when in need, and will help each other improve.

All School Celebration
Bathing Suit Donations
The daughter of Jayne WIlliky (kindergarten teacher at Glenhope) will be working at a camp for homeless children this summer. They are in need of bathing suits for the campers, ages 6-14. The bathing suits do not have to be new, so if you have any at your home that your children have outgrown, please consider donating them. They need all different sizes, even adult sizes would work. You can send them to school any time before the last day. I know they would appreciate your help if you are able.
