Vision: Ball-Chatham Success:
Our community makes it possible.
Our staff makes it attainable.
Our students make it happen.
In classic Illinois form we had a snow day on Wednesday and now it feels like spring has arrived! I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful day that we have in front of us.

This week is Disability Awareness Week! Please support our students!

I wanted to thank our students for an amazing Sadie Hawkins dance last night!  Everyone looked so amazing and I firmly believe that fun was had by all that attended.  As well a huge congratulations goes out to Titan Fever who brought home another Grand Championship from the Sullivan Show Choir Competition.  This championship sets them up well for "The Event" at Glenwood High School coming up next weekend.  We invite everyone to "The Event" next weekend to see all the world class competition that will be on our campus competing on Friday night and all day Saturday.  Please join us to see the amazing work and talent our students bring to the stage. 

Thank you for always supporting our students in and out of the classroom as well as ensuring everyone's safety at Glenwood High School and in our community.
