Students on Tracks 1 & 3 have one final make-up school session on April 1st due to inclement weather in January. Bus pick-up times will follow the regular weekday morning schedule. The instructional day will be 3.5 hours, with a dismissal time of 12:45. Breakfast and lunch will not be served, but students may bring snacks to school. Please send a note if your child's transportation will be different from usual. There will be Before School Care, starting at 7:00 AM, provided for those already enrolled in this program.
HELP! If you are a 2016-17 registered WCPSS volunteer, we need YOUR help whenever you are available between Feb 27-March 2 to assist our PTA sponsored Batik Artist in Residence, who will be working with our fourth graders. Please click here to sign up for one (or several) time slots. We want all of our fourth grade students to have a great art experience but need volunteers to make this possible. (You do NOT have to be a 4th gr parent to volunteer or be artistically talented. A smile, a set of hands and time are all that is required.) ALSO...used, men's sized t-shirts are needed to help protect the students' clothing during this fun, but messy, art adventure. There is a box outside the art room where t-shirts can be donated. Thank you! Let the creativity begin!!
Apply to a new school for next school year, 2017-18.
There's been overwhelming interest from students and parents.

Good evening Ballentine Elementary families. We are calling to remind you of 3 important events. First, join our PTA at InterSkate, near Garner, from 3-6:00 on Saturday, 2/24, when 50% of admissions and skate rentals will be donated directly to our PTA. Skate, have fun AND raise money for our school. Second, next week is Dr. Seuss celebration week, so wear green on Monday to celebrate the book, Green Eggs & Ham. Third, individual and class group pictures will be taken on Tuesday. Yes, this is also crazy sock day, so dress so the socks can easily come off for the group pictures. Send in your picture money in the sealed LifeTouch envelope, which your child will hand in on Tuesday. Skate on Saturday, wear green on Monday, and smile pretty for the cameras on Tuesday. What a great week!
