Our middle-level students had two opportunities in one week to share what they know with younger students.  Our fifth grade students visited the second floor to get a look at what six grade looks like.  Our students shadowed their older peers in the classroom and practiced the transition from classroom to classroom on the bell schedule, complete with a trip to lockers.

Our current Social Studies unit is Colonial America. We recently learned Colonial Americans had to prepare almost everything they needed for cooking from scratch, including butter. Today we gave it a try. They loved it, especially eating it on crackers!

At the end of the 10-week Girls on the Run season, all of our girls in our 15 county territory will participate in Community 5k Event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience within the GOTR curriculum. Girls set running goals over the course of the program which helps prepare them for the final event. Completing the 5k gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when your girl realizes that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

Girls on the Run

Nov 10, 2018 Congratulations to all Ball Charter coaches and participants in completing the annual GOTR Community 5k Event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience within the GOTR curriculum.
