Polar ticket is behavior chart that's used. Any teacher or staff member can make a comment on it. Kids with limited comments get once a month celebration/prize. This helps students develop respect.

Kindergarten team is great! Carpool is dysfunctional. Is there anyone at this school that can step up and resolve the carpool issue?!

I am writing to inform other parents before they sign their kids up for 4 years of boot camp at Ballantyne. I moved my daughter deom this shool after the Christmas break and she has been attending Beverly Woods Elementary and has made such great progress. With all the individual attention and the awesome teachers and how they instruct the kids her reading level has improved 5 points!!!! She was terrified of the EOgs this year but now she is ready confident and can't wait to take them. BES even asked us to fill out a form and letters to give to the kids on the day they take their end of year tests. They also ask for input as to what kind of teacher and where your kids should be placed next year. I love how they want input from the parents and kids that attend their school!!! Two thumbs up for BES and two thumbs down for Ballantyne!!!
