Watch Battle Ground High School's Senior Awards video

We know this year did not end the way any of us wanted it to; however, we have been impressed with the resilience of our students, staff, families, and overall community. Battle Ground is a special place, and we are thankful to our families for letting us work with your kids!

Kindergarten orientation goes virtual

If you haven't yet enrolled your kindergartner, online enrollment is available now. Any child who will be five years old before Sept. 1, 2020 is eligible to enter kindergarten in the fall.

If you've already enrolled, check out our new Resources for kindergarten families webpage, featuring a Kindergarten Orientation video with information about buses, medicine, and what you'll learn in school.

Visit our Kindergarten Resources page for more information. 

Thank you to our staff for providing essential childcare services!  

We want to take a moment to thank the staff members who came together to provide free childcare services for first responders and other essential frontline workers. With today being the last day of school, that also means that today is the last day of BGPS' free childcare program.
