BA-CFA Sunday Message–October 8, 2017

October 8, 2017

Good afternoon,

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

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.

Pink Out Fundraiser
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we at Brevard Academy are hoping to not only raise awareness, but also raise some money for The Hope Chest for Women. We will have a school-wide PINK OUT on Friday, October 13th!!!

The Hope Chest for Women offers financial assistance to women in all 22 counties of Western North Carolina who might struggle with the great expense of cancer treatment. Hope Chest for Women aims to provide resources, financial support, and hope to women in Western North Carolina living with breast or gynecological cancers. For more information, check out

We encourage all students to wear pink (as much pink as possible!) on Friday, October 13th! If students wear pink, they must bring $1.00 or more to donate to The Hope Chest. Last year we raised over $1,000!! We have set each classroom goal at $40 this year.
News from the PTO
Thanks to all who helped with Fall Festival! We had great weather and a great turnout. We appreciate all those who volunteered, and a special shout out to Sound Extreme for some great tunes, and National Guard for the 100ft Obstacle course!

PTO Fall Cookie Dough Fundraiser was kicked off on Friday. Your child can win prizes for selling 3, 10 or more items. Believe orders are only online with, make sure to register under Brevard Academy and send out emails to earn chances to win. The more orders, the more chances! Lots of great prizes. The cookie dough will be delivered to school for pick up on Nov. 16th. Just in time for Thanksgiving holiday! We will have a $50 prize at school for K-2, 3-5 and Middle school top sellers.

Tues, Oct. 10th is the next Dads of Great Students (DOGS) committee meeting at Oskar Blues at 6pm. Come out and meet other BA dads!

Great job so far with the Box Tops collection! We are still collecting these until end of October. Classes are earning prizes for 250,500,750 and 1000! Thanks for supporting our school.

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.

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.
