News Corner 2/8-2/12


There’s lots to check out this week. This week we cover:

  • Valentines Day
  • Yearbook
  • New t-shirt and replacement t-shirts
  • Class pictures, redos, and new student portraits
  • Tuition reminder, discount available!

We have gotten lots of questions about Valentines Day. All students are welcome to bring sweet cards to their friends and classmates to show their love. Class totals can be found in the parent directory–this was emailed mid-year from If you can’t find the email or are a new family, email the above address for information!

  • Yearbooks are for sale! You can order yearbooks by going to the Balfour website.
  • If you’re wanting to purchase a “Shout Out!” for your student (a small block of space where you can boast about your child!), I’m attaching an information sheet and linking the FAQ.

Pricing goes up on the yearbook March 1st–get yours now!

We have heard your cries for new shirt options! We are now offering hoodies, a new style of t-shirt, long-sleeved t-shirts, as well as the option to purchase additional “regular” shirts online! All shirts, regardless of color, will be considered within dress code! (My sensory sensitive kids are rejoicing! )

Follow this link to get your order in during our initial launch!

All apparel will be delivered mid-March. Orders close March 1st.

We successfully completed our first ever student-led round of school portraits and orders. They learned a lot about photography, profits and losses, and how to create and market a product. If you ordered pictures, the yearbook staff thanks you! They’ve all worked so hard to turn plans into action!

If you weren’t a part of TREA when we took portraits in December OR your student got a picture taken that wasn’t picture-perfect, we will be taking portraits in the Spring as well!

More on redos: I’ve already caught a few pictures I’d like to retake already (good opportunity for students to critically evaluate what we are producing), but if you know for sure you’d like your student to do a re-take, make sure to email and request a redo! Parents will have the option to purchase both Round 1 and Round 2 pictures. Orders will open March 1st (after our shirt campaign closes), will close March 15th, and will be available for students after we return from Spring Break the week of March 22nd.


Finally! Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. If you decide to pay your tuition now through the end of the year (February, March, April and May tuition at one time), you’ll receive a 5% discount!

As always, have a blessed week and please reach out if you need help with anything!
