Dear Balboa Academy ES Community,
Now that we have enjoyed our Carnival Break, we look forward to our school days ahead. Welcome to our new families who are joining us and we look forward to sharing our upcoming ES Field Day on Feb. 17th and at our Dragon Festival on March 5th together.
To meet the needs of our students, we have added new support classes to the ES. Classes include: Literacy Enrichment, Gifted Education classes, Math Support, and Reading Support. Students were selected based on standardized assessments and teacher recommendations. Students’ achievement and needs will continue to be assessed during the school year to determine support services needed. We look forward to watching our students achieve!
