Good afternoon,

This is Ted Duncan, Director of Brevard Academy, with this week’s announcements and events.

Join us on Thursday night from 5:30-6:30 for Math Night.  This is a parent-centered event designed to teach you strategies to help your child succeed in math.  If you are able, please leave your child and other young children at home.

Outdoor Education Campfire Lesson

If your child is currently in Outdoor Education, look for a letter detailing the campfire lesson that students will be participating in this week.  This lesson is part of the Outdoor Education curriculum and designed to teach students how to safely build a campfire while following leave no trace principles.

After School Number Change

After school has a new phone number. If you call the school switchboard it is ext: 3116.  You can also call directly, 828-885-3116. Please note that for the most part, calls and messages will only be able to be answered or returned during our hours of operation.

Also, bikes need to be examined by a mechanic at a local shop.    We will meet at the Visitor’s Center at 4:00.  Please be aware that you are responsible for dropping off and picking up your child.  We will finish the ride at 6:00.  Students must bring their own bike and helmet..  Bring a snack and water as well!

The Epluno store will close at midnight on Monday.  Don’t delay in getting great deals on your fall gear.  The store can be accessed from our website.

Safety During Car Pick Up

During car rider pick up, please put your cellphones away.  We want to make sure that all of our staff and students are safe during pickup.  Distracted driving can lead to accidents.  Help us keep our campus safe by putting away electronics while driving on campus.
