Helen Ball Elementary

Socorro Independent School District



  • A message from our principal, Mrs. Soto: 

    Welcome to the best school in SISD! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to new families joining us for the 2020-2021 school year and extend a big welcome back to all our returning Dalmatian families.  My name is Ana Soto and I am the proud principal at Helen Ball Elementary. We are honored you have selected Helen Ball Elementary as the campus where your child will experience endless opportunities.

    As we begin our 25th year as a school, we are committed to educate all our students as if they were our very own children. The faculty and staff are already hard at work ensuring our students receive a quality education focused on mastering the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) will help us establish common behavior expectations and promote a culture of kindness, safety, respect, and responsibility. 

    Together as a Dalmatian family, we will support our students to succeed this year and for years to come.  Our theme this year is:  We Are One #DalmatianStrong, honoring past and present traditions.

    We look forward to serving you and your child and are excited for the opportunity to maintain the Dalmatian legacy of ensuring our students continue to be “Terrific and Getting Better Every Day!”
