Help Raise the Paddle for Ballard Building Pride 

After 25 years, our “new” school still looks great, but the wear and tear from thousands of students and staff along with just plain age means that our building could use some attention. 

From replacing vital safety equipment like cameras and AED defibrillators to giving our science classrooms a power boost with upgraded wiring, it’s time to give our beloved school the MVP treatment it deserves. Let’s team up as a community to slam-dunk these necessary repairs and keep our “Beaver Dam” pride soaring!

Bucky, Auctioneer, Laura Lenhi and staff

Join the madness at this year’s PTSA Fundraising Gala at 5 p.m. Sunday, March 24 at Block 41, where we’ll raise our paddles to support a revitalization of our high school building.

Let’s show some love to our teachers and staff by purchasing a Fundraising Gala ticket for your favorite teacher, or someone at the school who has made a positive impact on your students’ years at Ballard.

Just head to the Gala website and grab a teacher ticket at a reduced price. You can add the teacher’s name in the comment field. Also, remember to score your tickets today
