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.

Maker Space and Chill Out Corral Transformations are Under Way!
Also as of this afternoon, the MakerSpace is taking shape! We received donations from the Tong and Blaisure families to get our storage and tools started! We are still in need of Lego's, 10-12 clear, lidded shoebox storage containers, watercolor paints, brushes, and paper, glue sticks, etc. If you have items around the house or want to donate, let me know! The kids are eager to be "makers!"
Thank you for helping us transform our classroom and evolve to meet the needs of our students!
