Vision: Ball-Chatham Success:
Our community makes it possible.
Our staff makes it attainable.
Our students make it happen.
Happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope that everyone thoroughly enjoyed their long weekend and time with their families and friends!  Thanksgiving day is definitely one of my favorite days of the year! Between the food, family, football (especially the COWBOYS!), black Friday adds, and decorating the house inside and out, it always makes for an amazing weekend.  This year was no exception.  I hope that you took some of that time to rest and get re-energized for the final push to the holiday season and your kid's final push to end of the first semester.  Thank you for all you do for our community.

The semester exam schedule has been published.  If a student needs to adjust the time their exam is taken, they can get an exam reschedule form from Office 1, have their teacher(s) sign it and return it to Office 1 for my signature.  The deadline to turn in these forms is Wednesday, December 11 at 3:00 p.m.  Please click the link below to find the exam schedule.
