Good afternoon,

This is School Director Ted Duncan with important information and the events for the week.

Board Meeting

At our monthly board meeting on March 14, we will be discussing school safety at Brevard Academy.  Our board meeting will convene at 5:00 pm in the BA-CFA gym.

March 16 Early Dismissal

On March 16, we will dismiss at 11:30.  Our bus service will run. The Boys and Girls Club bus will not run.  BA-CFA after-school will not be open and lunch will not be served. All students need to be picked up by 12:00.

After School Payments

Daylight Savings Begins

Don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour.  We want all Bulldogs at school on time on Monday.

Hat and Dress Down for Student Growth

Friday is a hat and dress down for students who made growth on their winter MAP testing.  Students who made growth in one area, get a dress down on Friday, March 16. Students who made growth in two or more areas can wear a hat as well.

Sham Grams

Beta Club will be selling sham grams (candy grams) for  a dollar for St. Patrick’s Day between March 8th and March 15th in the morning before announcements outside of the gym and during lunch in students’ classroom.

Duke Energy Challenge

We are only 6 energy kits away from $250. Our school is taking the My Energy Kit Challenge and has a goal to save at least 20,000 kilowatt-hours of energy this school year. That’s a year’s worth of electricity for two homes! We’ll reach this goal when at least 100 families sign up for a FREE Energy Kit and use it to make their homes energy-efficient. The FREE kits from Duke Energy contain items like LED bulbs, a low-flow shower head, and other useful gadgets that can make a big difference toward saving energy at home. If we meet the challenge, our school will automatically win $250. Take the My Energy Kit Challenge and sign up for your FREE kit at or call 1-855-386-9548.

PTO News

FAMILY Bingo Night is March 22nd! We are taking Pre-registrations ALL WEEK for Bingo Night.  You can pay ahead and avoid the line or send in money with your RSVP. If you pre-register by March 16th, you will be entered in a raffle to win a week of summer camp!  1 week of Soccer camp at Brevard College or half off a week of Mountain Roots summer camp!   We have lots of other gift certificates you can win if you come out and play bingo.

Please email the PTO if you can help out that night or if you need an RSVP form.

Thanks to everyone who came to the Zaxby’s night this past week.  We had a great night and earned $300 for our school. Thank you for your support!

It is time again to nominate new PTO officers.  If you are interested in getting more involved in the coming year, please reach out to the PTO to find out more about the officer responsibilities.
