Dear Parents, Students and Friends,
On behalf of the staff at Ballston Spa High School, I am excited to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. Summer crews and staff have been working tirelessly to ensure that our building is not only in excellent condition, but that some newly repurposed spaces are ready for the start of the year. We are committed to providing an excellent education that maximizes the potential of each student. In partnering with the family and community, our students will become responsible and well-rounded adults, because we believe that “Educating Everyone Takes Everyone.” Furthermore, our staff is dedicated to helping our students set and achieve their goals, identify and seize the opportunities our district provides, and to removing barriers that may block the path to a meaningful diploma for all.
There are tremendous academic and extracurricular opportunities for each student at Ballston Spa High School. Over the next few weeks I would ask that you think about and reflect on what your goals are for the upcoming school year. Take some time and have a conversation with those closest to you and create a personal list of goals for yourself. The opportunities at Ballston Spa High School are vast, and they will be presented to you by your parents, friends, teachers, counselors, coaches and administrators. Seize the opportunities and use them to help achieve the goals you set.
Below are some upcoming events:
September 4th Freshman/New Student Orientation 8:30-11:30 am
September 5th First Day of Classes
September 20st Staff Conference ½ Day 10:40 am dismissal
