Opening Day this Sunday

We eagerly look forward to welcome you all this Sunday - August 28th for the start of another exciting  school year. The teaching and administrative staff of Bal Vihar have been very busy preparing for the opening day.

As a reminder - Our first day of school is on Aug 28th at 10.00 a.m. Ladue Middle School (9701 Conway Rd, St. Louis, MO 63124).  We recommend you arrive 10-15 minutes earlier to familiarize yourself with the location and the layout. As you enter the parking lot of the school, please do not mark on the fire lane. Your vehicle is liable to be ticketed/towed by Ladue police if found parked in the fire lane (the curbside closer to the building).

Hopefully, you all had a chance to verify your kids class allocation on Renweb. If you were not able to, our admin staff will be able to help guide you on day 1. Please take a moment and get familiarized with the sections your kids are assigned and room numbers as this will help  ensure a smooth first day of school

As is the custom, Bal Vihar kids will start off the school year with a special art project on Lord Ganesha. Please ensure that your child bring in either their Bal Vihar bag or a School bag along with Pencils, Erasers, Kid friendly scissors, crayons and glue.

We have a special schedule for First Day of School. On opening day, you will have the opportunity to get to meet the teachers, get a peek into the curriculum for this school year. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions and find out how you can help in this journey. This is vital to make the school year successful for all involved. We have a separate schedule for Children and Parents as listed below. We also have scheduled session for Parent Orientation and have set aside exclusive time for Q&A session where you will have an opportunity to ask questions to Bal Vihar administrative team.

Our admin team members will be available in the lobby in case you need any help.
