2017-18 School Year News

  • Catawba County Schools is excited to announce that we are expanding the mental health services that are available for our students.  Beginning in the 2017 – 2018 school year, we will contract with Support, Inc. to provide School Based Therapy in all of our schools.  Without ever having to leave the school campus, your child can work confidentially with an individual therapist on issues impacting their lives.  Support, Inc. can begin the referral process for your child this summer and provide services without delay when school starts back.  If your child has previously received school based therapy services from another provider, you can transfer your services to Support, Inc. this summer as well.  Please contact Maria Ballard, Director of Student Services, if you would like additional information or if you have any questions.

From The Principal

  • Welcome to Balls Creek Elementary! My staff and I are very excited to begin another school year. We have lots of new and exciting opportunities planned for our students this year. We have added a STEAM lab where all students will participate in active and engaging hands-on learning. We are also creating a Maker Space in the media center. Keep watching as the transformation unfolds!

    At Balls Creek we are committed to creating a positive and nurturing learning environment for your student. We encourage all parents to get involved. Contact your child's teacher for opportunities to volunteer.
