From The Principal

  • Dear Balls Creek Families,

    I wanted to share the news that I will be retiring this month.  My last day will be Friday, February 28th.  Mrs. Deanna Taylor will serve as interim principal for the remainder of the year.  Mrs. Taylor is a retired Catawba County Schools principal. 

    The six years that I spent at Balls Creek have been among the best of my career.  I feel blessed to have been a part of such an amazing community of students, parents, and staff.  Balls Creek Elementary is the BEST school in the district!

    Thank you for all of the support that you have shown me over the past six years.  I wish all of you the best of luck as you finish out the school year.

    Rita Lail, Principal
