BA-CFA Sunday Message–September 17, 2017

September 17, 2017

Good afternoon,

This is Ted Duncan, Director of Brevard Academy, with this week’s announcements and events.  I hope you had a great weekend.  Our Fall Beautification Day was a bunch of fun and very productive.  Stop by to see the progress we are making on our outdoor spaces.

Calendar Update
Our current calendar contains over the required 1025 instructional hours; therefore, our current calendar remains unchanged.  If we need to make changes in the future based on weather, we will alert you to those changes.

Progress Reports
Progress reports will be sent home on Wednesday along with MAP testing reports.  You will also receive a letter explaining how to log onto to PowerSchool to monitor your child’s grades .

Lunch Credits and Ordering
Lunch ordering will open regularly on the 20th of each month and close on the 27th.  Go ahead and set a reminder on your calendar to set up ordering.  You will be able to order your child’s lunches for October beginning on September 20.

Epluno Uniform Sales Are Open
You can order fleece pullovers as well as sweatshirts.  All items are available in adult and children’s sizes. The ordering window will close on September 25.  Orders will be sent to your house by October 13.  Don’t delay to get your fall gear.  The store can be accessed here.

Healthy Smiles
Healthy Smiles will be on campus on Monday, September 25 through Wednesday, September 27.  In order for your child to be seen by the dentist, we must have the appropriate paperwork on file.  Please contact your child’s teacher if you need another form.

Girls on the Run
Information about Girls on the Run went home with students last week.  If your child is interested in participating please fill out the registration paperwork.  Girls on the Run is open to all interested girls in grades 3-5.  You do not have to be a runner to participate.  The registration fee is on a sliding scale. The first practice is this Tuesday on campus at 3:15.

After School News
Thank you to all parents who paid in advance and took advantage of our discounts. You can still switch to quarterly payment which is the most economical option if your child attends 3 or more times per week. If you have kept up weekly payments, we will be happy to subtract these from the quarterly fees, for one more week.

Quarterly rates: $280/quarter-1 child, $440/quarter-2 children, $560/quarter-3 or more children.

Any questions please email Philippa Hackett at
