Classroom of the Week

​Ms. Stillwell's class loved using the laptops to be introduced to a new reading website Teach Your Monster to Read. Students had the opportunity to create their own avator based upon their individuality.  This program allows students to build phonemic awareness, fluency, and comprehension skills.  

Daily Announcements

Battleground would like to extend a warm welcome to Taisha Morrison!

My name is Taisha Morrison, a senior at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am currently completing my student teaching in Mrs. Allen’s first grade class. I will graduate in December with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.

The passion I have for teaching has been revived through the Battleground community. The staff has been very enthusiastic and helpful. Though UNCC offers deep understanding in the university classroom, my first graders are providing me with a rewarding teaching experience!

Pats on the Back
Each day Teachers and Staff at Battleground are watching for our students to show random acts of kindness, when we see this behavior displayed we reward these students with a "Pat on the Back". At the end of the week these students will be divided by grade level and one lucky individual from each grade level will have the opportunity to win a special prize from Mr. Carpenter!

Our winners for this week are:
From Kindergarten: Jaliyah Bracey
From First Grade: Amayah Campbell
From Second Grade: Nicoli Harkey
From Third Grade: Hilary Cruz

Congratulations to all of our students who received a "Pat on the Back," we are so PROUD!
Keep up the good work!

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 few schools in the district to offer this program.
