December 3, 2017

Good afternoon,

This is Ted Duncan, Director of Brevard Academy with the the highlights happening at the school this week.

Annual Week of Giving

Brevard Academy invites friends and families to join in our first annual Week of Giving, December 4th-8th, to celebrate teachers and staff.  During the week, you can visit the Everything Teacher website to make a purchase from your teacher’s wish list or make a flat donation towards a gift certificate for your teacher. On Wednesday, December 6th, after dismissal, the Everything Teacher Mobile Store will be on campus if you prefer to pop in and shop. The mobile unit will have copies of the teachers wish lists on hand. All purchases will be delivered to the school just before the holiday break AND 10% of all sales will be donated back to Brevard Academy! Twenty percent is donated back if over $1000 is purchased as a school!! Please help us make our Week of Giving a great event for our teachers and the school!

Progress Reports

Progress reports will come home tomorrow, Monday, December 4.  Please sign and return these at your earliest convenience.

Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Brevard Academy will be recognizing grandparents and special friends on December 18.  Please look for the information sheet about this event to come home with your child.

Information on Middle School

I invite all 3rd-5th grade parents to join me on Tuesday, December 5th at 3:30 to learn more about what makes Brevard Academy middle school unique.  If you plan to attend, please email me directly at

Inclement Weather Reminder

The weather forecast currently looks good. However, we live in the mountains and things can change quickly.  In the event of inclement weather, we will use procedures outlined in our student handbook to alert parents.  Our handbook can be found under the parent resources tab.

Dismissal Help

In order to improve security during dismissal and allow teachers to focus on students, parents walking up to receive children will need to wait in our front lobby.

News from the PTO

Any remaining cookie dough is in the PTO closet freezer.  We will work to send it home with your child on Monday, if possible.  If you would rather to pick it up, please email PTO:  As a reminder, all cookie dough items should be kept frozen.
Monday, December 11th is also the next PTO meeting date, we will be having a consignment sale from 5-6pm, instead of a traditional meeting.  Please bring in clean uniform items only, they can be priced and dropped off at the office anytime next week.  We could use a volunteer or two to help sort clothes and set up from 4-5pm and sales help until 6pm.  Any volunteers will get to keep the full amount of clothing sold.  All other sales will get 75% profit, after consignment fee.

It is also important to check the lost and found before Friday, Dec. 8th.  We will be removing any items without names.

Middle school deadline for Bowling RSVP and payment was Friday, the event is Dec. 8th from 5-7pm at Rockin’ Bowl.  If your child is still interested, we have extended the deadline for forms and payment is due by Monday, Dec. 4th.  We cannot accept any sign ups after Monday.  Please email PTO if you need another form!
