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.
Please send in a baby picture by Tuesday!!
Please send in a baby picture no later than Tuesday, February 9. Pictures will not be damaged and will be returned. We are missing many pictures!!!
I also want to remind you that we are a nut-free classroom. If your child's valentines have treats attached to them, be sure they do not contain nuts.
Also, due to severe allergies in our school, we have been told that there may not be any homemade items.
Here is the link to the Sign Up Genius for Valentine's Treats!
Thank you for helping to keep our students safe!
