The Fruit And Veggie Program Is Keeping Our Students Healthy!

Battleground is proud to be a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program school again this year. This program provides students with fresh fruits and vegetables as snacks during the school day. The program has been successful in introducing students to a variety of produce they otherwise might not have the opportunity to sample.
Battleground is the only school in the district to offer this program.



Hello Parents!

Battleground Elementary School will be a UNIFORM SCHOOL for the 2013-2014 school year.  Listed below are the uniform requirements for all students:

  • Khaki bottoms (pants, shorts, skirts, jumpers, capris, etc.).  Please do not purchase cargo pants (multiple pockets down the leg).
  • Uniform tops must be plain navy, white, or light blue in a polo style with sleeves.  Girls may choose rounded or V-neck type shirts with sleeves.  No visible logos allowed (Izod, Polo, Reebok, etc.).  T-shirts and shirts with the school logo/mascot are acceptable as long as they are navy, white, or light blue.  Previous Battleground t-shirts are okay regardless of the color.
  • If shirts are worn un-tucked, they must not hang lower than the fingertips when arms are down at the side.
  • Students may wear shoes, socks and belts of their choice.

Uniforms will be available at the following stores as soon as they can get them ordered (Wal-Mart, Belk, J.C. Penny, Big Lots, Goodwill, Family Dollar, Target, Rose’s).  There will be other companies added throughout the summer.  Please call me on my cell phone if you have any questions or if you need additional information.
