    Parent Tip of the Month

    To help your child succeed in school establishing a daily routine at home is the key. Play your child's favorite song and ask him to get ready by the time it's over. Daily routines that could be beneficial are eating a hearty breakfast, talking to your child about school, establishing a set study time and bedtime.

    If your children have outgrown their uniform shirts we would gladly accept those donations.

    Bullying is when someone repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending himself or herself.

    2. We will try to help scholars who are bullied.
    3. We will try to include scholars who are left out.
    4. If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell and adult at school and an adult at home until the bullying ends.

    ID's Enforced!

    Anyone coming to pick up a child during school hours MUST show proof of ID or the student will not be permitted to leave the campus. Phone calls or notes will not be accepted without proper ID! Please help us to keep all out students at Helen Ball safe by complying with this rule. Communicate this to all friends, family members, day care providers, etc...! The safety of our children is our priority and will be strictly enforced!
