    Come to the library after school, we have plenty of experts ready to guide you. No need to sign up in advance - just get to the library, on the video production side of the room and ask for help. Stop by Monday - Thursday

    Exciting things are still happening in the library!

    Visit the Library Photo Gallery!

    This week has been an incredible week of conversation, activism, and community. In the library, we continue to celebrate Women's History Month with a "Not All Heroes Wear Capes" activism display in conjunction with Ballard's STAR (Students and Teachers Against Racism) Club. We are also becoming a community of puzzle maniacs. If you have any puzzles at home that you would be willing to donate to the library please send them with your children. We put together puzzles, track our daily progress, and compete with other schools in the district for "best time." We are also committed to having conversations about literacy and are forming our Summer Reading Selection Committee. Please ask your child if they would like to be on the committee to pick books for incoming BHS students and to reach out to Ms. Chambers for more information.

    Happy Reading, 
    Ms. Chambers

    We have started our transformation!

    We have shifted some of the furniture to make Libary Deskthe space more flexible for student learning and teaching. We have relocated a circulation desk, ordered interactive projectors and worked with electricians to start wiring for increased student use. The library is definitely transforming! We have removed bookshelves, repositioned our books, started weeding our nonfiction, and interactive projectors have arrived. Stop by the library to check out some of our changes and use our QR codes to give us feedback on what you think we can add to make it even better!  We will continue to update you as we make changes.

    Poems, Stories, Drawings Spilled Ink LogoSpilled Ink is coming back to Ballard High School in coordination with the Ballard Public Library in early May! Please talk to your child about their artistic endeavors and encourage them to share an original drawing, painting, poetry, short story, photography, video, music, sculpture or more at or in room SW105. For more information go to

    #WhatAreYouReading- this is the question every person connected to Ballard High School should be discussing. We believe that the fastest way to connect with people and positively change the world is to discuss the books and stories that matter to us most. If you need any ideas for books to read or purchase please go to our Amazon or Queen Anne Book Company Wishlists.

    We Won! Beaver Community!

    I am thrilled to announce that we won the $100,000 grant award from Farmer's Insurance! The award was unveiled at a faux assembly for 9th graders at the end of the school day today where Ms. Chambers was surprised by her family, district officials and representatives from Farmer's Insurance.  View Video!

    Structural work will take place and equipment will be received sometime in 2018 and we anticipate the Learning Commons being 100% transformed by the start of the 2019-20 school year.

    Thank you to every one who voted! Our community is the best and it is so, so clear that it is Always Great to be a Beaver!!   Keven Wynkoop
