BA-CFA Sunday Message–December 2, 2018

December 2, 2018

Good Afternoon,

This is School Director Ted Duncan with the weekly announcements and events.

Attendance Incentive for the Month of December

We want all students in school and on time. Missing 10% of the school year (two days/month), can make it harder to learn how to read.  Our average daily attendance for the 1st quarter was 96%. We want to keep our on time attendance high.  During the month of December, every student will be able to earn a ticket for his/her Positive Peer Pack by arriving to school on time.  The class with the highest number of students on time will earn a hot chocolate party on December 19.   For more about the importance of student attendance, please see my website.

Brevard Academy Bulldog Giving Tree

We are looking for sponsors to help provide holiday cheer to our Brevard Academy families in need.  Please come by the front office and take a name off our tree to shop for specific items.  Turn in unwrapped gifts by Wednesday, December 12th at noon to Ms. Monk.  For more information, please contact Ms. Monk at 828-885-3113.  Thank you in advance.

Dinner with Duncan

I will be hosting my second listening session on December 5th from 6:00-7:30 pm.  Dinner will be provided.  Please RSVP by calling the main office at 828-885-2665.  This is an adult only event.

Winter Uniform Sale

We will have winter uniforms for sale in the front office on Wednesday, December 19th from 7:30 am to 12:30 pm.  We are selling short and long sleeve t-shirts at cost. We will have the size youth XS through adult XL.  Cash and check only please.

Visitor Parking

Please use a designated visitor parking space when visiting during the school day.  This will help to keep the fire line at the front of the school clear and allow traffic to flow freely.

Winner Winner – Green Pack

The winner of this pack is Green.  If your child is part of the green pack, your child can wear a hat during school on Monday, December 3rd. Talk with your child about our Positive Peer Packs and how tickets are awarded throughout the school day.
