BA-CFA Sunday Message–October 1, 2017

October 1, 2017

Good afternoon,

This is Ted Duncan, Director of Brevard Academy, with this week’s announcements and events.  It was great to see so many families at our PTO Fall Festival yesterday.  I would like to thank our PTO for organizing a great community event.

School Entrance

The only entrance to the school is the entrance from Hendersonville Highway. We have many after school activities and need to keep our traffic flowing in a predictable manner.  If you are picking up for a sport or for after school, please use the main entrance and avoid driving into the bus lot.

School Information Verification Form

We are updating our school information.  A verification form will be sent home on Monday with your child.  It is essential that we have the correct information on hand in case of emergencies.  Please update this form and return to your child’s teacher.

School Pictures on October 10

We are taking individual pictures on Tuesday, October 10.  Uniforms are required for these pictures.  Look for the order forms to come home on Monday.  You are able to order online or by check.  Please make checks payable to Lifetouch.  We will have a non-uniform picture day in the spring.

Lost and Found

Our student lost and found is located at the end of the blue hallway.  It has grown significantly since last month.  Please remember to label clothing as we do our best to match up items.  Unclaimed items at the end of each grading period are donated to consignment or donated to Goodwill.

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.

After School Payment Due October 19

If you are paying on the quarterly system, make sure your have your payment in by October 19.  This is the most convenient, cost effective way to pay if your child attends 3 or more days per week.

$280 per quarter for 1 child
$440 per quarter for 2 children
$560 per quarter for 3 or more children

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.

Math Night

If you missed the math night presentation, we will be placing the presentation on our website soon.

Ted Talk

If you missed my Ted Talk on helping your child, you can access the presentation here.
