Is Your Family Moving this Summer?
If so, please note the following:
For elementary school families moving within the district: The Ball-Chatham School District is kindly requesting that parents who are moving to a home in a Ball-Chatham elementary school boundary other than the one they currently reside, please email Asst. Supt. Jill Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at the District Office (217) 483-2416 as soon as possible with your new address. Doing so will greatly help the District hire the required number of teachers in the appropriate time period for each grade level.
For all families moving out of the Ball-Chatham School District to another school district: Please be aware that transfer requests by your new school district must be made as soon as possible, as our schools will be closed from June 12 to July 28, and requests will not be processed during that time.

If interested in obtaining one of the bricks, please contact Betsy Schroeder at 483-2416 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Each camp will emphasize basic techniques, fundamental skills and physical fitness. More importantly, the Summer Camps strive to develop interest and enthusiasm for sports and athletics.
An overview (and registration form) of each camp offered through Glenwood Athletics can be viewed here. The camps will be led by experienced high school coaches, and assisting will be collegiate and high school athletes. The specific ages listed for each camp are according to the grade the child will enter in the Fall of 2013.
Please complete the registration form and sign the waiver to allow your child to participate. Participation is not limited to students in the Ball-Chatham School District. Please register by May 10 to ensure your child will receive items provided by the camp. Entries received after May 24 are subject to a late fee of $5 per child, per camp.
