Sunday Message for August 11, 2019

August 12, 2019

Good afternoon,

Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year.  We will officially kick off the year tomorrow with our Back to School Bash.  We will have uniform sales, robotics demonstrations, information on our revamped After School Program (Bulldog Care) and our STEM program.  Community demonstrations include mountain biking demos by Sycamore Cycles, the Transylvania County Bookmobile and representatives from the Transylvania SWAT Team and our Outdoor Education Program. We will also have field games with Coach Jones and Kona Ice will be here to help you cool down.  Keep your cellphone with you for an important announcement just prior to the morning session.  If you know of a family that is interested in enrolling, have them tag along to experience the energy of Brevard Academy.

We will also have a new parent orientation beginning at 4:00 pm in the music room.  If you are unable to attend, the presentation will be available on our website for review.

Your Brevard Academy staff has been working hard over the past two weeks to gear up and make this year better than ever.  When you are campus tomorrow, you will notice improvements around the campus: new sidewalks, water bottle fillers, increased play spaces outdoors, sun sails, and space for our new volleyball team.  Thank you for all your contributions to help these improvements happen.

We have also increased the number of instructional support in order to lower student to teacher ratios.  You will see some new faces around the campus, so please take the time to welcome our new staff members to the Bulldog Family.

We will open the school year with over 400 students this year, so please maintain extreme vigilance when you are in our parking lots.  Park in designated spaces and cross at designated crosswalks only.

I am looking forward to a great event tomorrow and a fantastic school year.

On behalf of the staff and Brevard Academy Board of Directors, thank you for choosing to entrust us with your children.

Your child.  Our mission.
