News from the Ballard R-2 School District

Congratulations to Mr. Jackson Duncan - 6th-grade teacher and Mrs. Stephanie Lovelace - school counselor from the Ballard R-II School District. They applied for "Fund My Classroom" grants through Western Governors University - WGU and were awarded their grants!

Mr. Duncan plans to use his funds to purchase an Oculus Quest headset that will help expand ideas in the classroom, especially in the areas of science and social studies, such as gravity, the solar system, and even what it's like being in the trenches during World War I.

Mrs. Lovelace plans to use her funds to purchase an elementary social skills kit that will help students better understand the complexities of feelings and reactions to their feelings in order to grow emotional intelligence and respond responsibly.
