BA-CFA Sunday Message for February 10, 2019

February 10, 2019


Dear Bulldog Families,


February 14–Early Dismissal and February 15 No School for Students

February 14 we will release at 11:30.  On February 15 there is no school for students.


Lost and Found

Lost and found is filling up quickly. If your child is missing an item, please stop by to see if it has been placed in our lost and found on the blue hallway.


Capital Campaign

We are halfway to our $20,000.00 goal.  Help us get the outdoor pavilion built by contributing to our capital campaign.  If each family contributes just $50.00, we will reach our goal of expanding our space and getting our students outside.  Donations can be made online under Capital Campaign, dropped off in the main office, or mailed into the school.


February Beta Club Candy Grams

February 5th through the 13th, Beta Club will be selling candy grams for $1 each.  Funds raised go to support Beta Club Activities.



Yearbook season is in full swing! We will be placing our final order the last week of February so now is the time. Please follow the link below to the Jostens website to personalize your student’s book of memories.


Order your yearbook here.


In addition, we have limited advertisement space available for purchase. With several different options, you can send that special shout out to your student to let them know how proud you are of them, or send us a business card and we will display your business for all our Bulldog families to see. For those wishing to purchase a full-page ad for $100, not only will that include a copy of our fabulous yearbook, we will also list you as a sponsor for our extremely anticipated BA Spring Talent Show! What an amazing way to show your support! Please follow the link to our Google Form to reserve your space today! For any questions or concerns, please contact the yearbook at



Soccer Update:

The 2019 soccer tryouts will host a “Make-up” tryout practice.  If you were unable to attend the first week of tryouts, this is your chance to come out. Please only attend if you are making up a practice, as we will need to keep numbers down to individually assess each player.  Make-up practice day will be on Tuesday, February 12th, 3:30 to 4:30. Your child will need: cleats, shin guards, running shoes, a water bottle, and socks. Please pick up your child by 4:30! Final decision on the 2019 soccer team will be communicated by Thursday, February 14th.





Save the DATE:  February 28th will be our PTO Family Fun Bingo Night!  We will have bingo, food, fun and prizes!  More information will be coming soon to register.


Save the date!  The middle school dance will be held on Friday, March 8th. We hope to see all middle schoolers there!


Work to Be Excellent—February Challenge

February is Black History Month.  I challenge all Bulldogs to engage in a task that will enhance their understanding of African-American History.  Read a book, visit a museum, or see a movie specifically geared towards African-American or Black History and you can earn a dress down pass.  Complete details can be found on my webpage.
