Reimagine Balsz

We are busy getting the word out to our community about the Re-Imagine Balsz Study Session scheduled for April 18 at the Balsz Community Conference Center. A copy of the flyer we are distributing to community members and businesses in our area is on the back table.  Feel free to give these out to anyone you know who might be interested in giving us feedback as we plan the future of Balsz.


BCEF Supports Little League

Our local Little League is have difficulty signing up baseball and softball players.  The reasons why there are not more players is not certain. It could be because of the cost or it could be because of a new requirement that student show proof of residency.  The BCEF has approved an expenditure of $2,000 for scholarships and to defray the cost for players. 


We would like to invite everyone to a brand new event sponsored by Skyline Wishbuilders and the Phoenix East Rotary.  The spring Eggstravagancza will be held this Saturday, April 8 from 10:00- 1:00pm. Children of all ages are invited to take part in the fun.  There will be food, prizes, bounce houses and an egg hunt and it’s all free. We will also be accepting Kindergarten registrations in the Brunson-Lee office. This will take place at Brunson-Lee in the new community space behind the school. There are flyers on the back table.


TARIAT Conference

I would like to recognize two members of our outstanding team for leading the Theres a Reason I’m a Teacher Conference in Flagstaff recently.  Our Director of Teaching and Learning Daniela Robles was the Keynote speaker and teacher Joy Hallet, teacher at Crockett served on a panel of experts. 



You will be receiving our newest marketing material in your mailbox soon. These post cards have been developed by our marketing committee and include several reasons why Balsz is the best choice for our community.


Kindergarten Video

Another element of our marketing efforts is to inform parents about our wonderful kindergarten program here in the Balsz School District.  With you permission I would like to show this short video emphasizing our excellent kindergarten program.


Thank you. This concludes my remarks for this month.
