  • Message from the Principal

    Cheers to the first 100 days of the school year! As we lead into the winter break, we celebrate the first 100 days of school. While a little passed the halfway mark, this is a good time to reflect on all the great things that have gone on this year and begin to plan for the final half of the school year. As crazy as it may seem, we are closer to June than we are to September even though it doesn’t feel like it! Summer will be here before we know it. I have learned so much about this school, teachers, staff, and the students over my first 100 days here that give me great excitement to...

  • Digital Safety Conversation Night - Feb. 11th

    Please join us on Feb. 11th at 6:30 pm at the Wood Road Library to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2019, which promotes safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones/tablets among children and young people. During this event you’ll learn about the importance of digital safety and the Smart Talk, an interactive website created by National PTA and LifeLock, a Symantec company, to help families and kids talk about using digital devices responsibly and decide a few important questions together, like: What are they allowed to post on social media? What should their privacy settings be and what apps can they download? How much screen time is ok? Once those questions have been answered, a custom agreement is created, which can be printed and signed so that all of the ground rules are easily remembered by everyone. 

    A pizza dinner will start at 6:30 pm followed by a presentation with a couple of guest speakers and a student panel at 7 pm.  

    This is an event open to parents and students of the Ballston Spa community.  There will be activities for the younger siblings to enjoy during the event. We hope to see you then!  If you have any questions, please reach out to us at woodroadpta@gmail.com.
