Classroom of the Week

Pats On The Back

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: Victoria
From First Grade: Luis Granados
From Second Grade: Austin Ballard
From Third Grade: Trent

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

Daily Announcements

Battleground students will have the opportunity to have their picture taken in front of the Christmas tree and these pictures will be made into a Christmas Card. The tree has been decorated by the students; it is a beautiful tree! This would make a great keepsake or present for a loved one! 

To have your child's picture taken and receive a card you need to send in $2.00 and the permission form provided by the school (also found below) before the day of the pictures. Kindergarten and First Grade will have their pictures taken on Monday, December 15th and Second and Third Grade students will have their pictures taken on Tuesday, December 16th. These pictures will be distributed before the Christmas break.

We hope that you will take part in this wonderful opportunity!

~Above is an example of what the picture will look like.~

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!
