April 7, 2019

Dear Bulldog Families,

As you know, at Brevard Academy we are always working to improve.  Please look for a short survey in your email to give us feedback.  The survey will remain open until the end of April.

Best of WNC

Spring Pictures

Non-uniform spring pictures will take place on Tuesday, April 9.  Ordering information was sent home last week.  Orders can also be placed online.


Family Code Night is a Brevard Academy event at which kids grades 3-5 and their parents do their first hour of computer programming – together!  At this special evening of learning and fun, you will play in adult-child teams to complete fun® puzzles and challenges at your own pace, and learn core concepts in coding in this very first hour.

We will start promptly at 5:30 pm in the gymnasium. The program is free, but space is limited, so please rsvp by Friday, March 29th!  You will be coding with your kids in no time!

To sign up: please email Mrs. Speciale at with the subject line “Family Code Night.”

Spring Break Begins on Friday, April 12

Be safe over spring break.  Rest, relax, and don’t forget to read.  We will see you back in school on April 22.

   Excellence in Education Challenge

 April is Poetry Appreciation Month.  I challenge all Bulldogs to engage in a task that will enhance their understanding of poetry.  Read a book, visit a museum, or see a movie specifically geared towards poetry and you can earn a dress down pass.  Complete details are on my webpage.
