News & Announcements

Academy 1:1 Laptop Rollout Update: Academy Phase 1 - Friday, August 26th and Monday, August 29th

Students who had a laptop last year should receive their laptops either Friday (8/26) or Monday (8/29), if they have completed and turned in their Student Equipment Agreement Form and paid their insurance for this year. (The attached blue form is for all students who were 1:1 laptop users last year.) Please complete and return with the laptop insurance for 2016-2017 (see white half-sheet).
Students who were not 1:1 laptop users in Bartlett last year, must attend a parent meeting where you will receive your paperwork. The Academy will not be hosting a parent meeting this year, since most of our students were a part of the 1:1 initiative last year. BHS and Bartlett middle schools will be hosting seven different parent meetings for rising 6th, 11th, and 12th grade students, and you are encouraged to attend one of those. I have attached a schedule of all seven parent meetings. You only have to attend one. The white half sheet attached can be used by new students to pay for laptop insurance.

Bartlett Academy Supports LeBonheur Children's Hospital and Go Jim Go!

Beginning Monday, August 29th, we will begin our fundraiser for LeBonheur Children's Hospital and GoJimGo. Students can bring a dollar and purchase an 8.5" x 11" placard with their name on it, and that placard will go up on our Service Wall. Then on September 9th, all students who have purchased a placard will take their placard out in front of the school to welcome and cheer on Jim Jaggers as he rides by the school. Last year, we raised $500, and this year we have a goal of $1000. Help us help the kids at LeBonheur by donating a dollar or more to this worthy cause.

Academy Clinic moves to room 506...

Parents and Students, for those of you who do business with the school clinic, we want to let you know that the Academy clinic is now in room 506, near the Wellness classes. Students, please go to that room to see the nurse if you are sick or need to take medicine. Parents, please check in at the main office first if you need to turn in medications, or pick up a sick student. Thank you.

Principal's Message

Monday, July 18, 2016
 
Welcome Class of 2020!

Freshmen and Parents of Freshmen, we are set to begin our third year at the Academy. We have had such incredibly good experiences these past two years here at Bartlett Academy. We have the best faculty in the world, and we live in the best community in the world. We are looking forward to even bigger and better things with the class of 2020.

We will start the year somewhat unofficially with our third Freshman Panther Camp on Friday, July 29th, from 8am to 1pm. Incoming freshmen will learn about the Academy and about high school. They will get to meet students who have been at the Academy the past couple of years, and they will get to meet other freshmen. Students will tour the facility and meet teachers, staff, counselors, and administrators. We will provide pizza for lunch and ice cream afterwards. Brand new Class of 2020 short-sleeve spirit t-shirts will be available for $15 - blue, red, or gray.

One of the great experiences the Academy offers is the opportunity for ninth graders who are coming to us from three different feeder schools - Appling, Bon Lin, and Elmore Park - to come together as a freshman class before they head to BHS next year. This expanded peer group is an invaluable benefit to students as they enter BHS at 10th graders. This year's freshmen will have the unique experience (so far) as sophomores when they join a BHS student body next year made up completely of students who experienced their ninth grade year at the Academy.

I want to give you some important communication links that will make this year the best it can be. First, our website address is http://ba.bartlettschools.edlioschool.com , and we post important information here throughout the year. We also have a Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/Bartlett-Ninth-Grade-Academy-702414429840095/ - and a Twitter page - https://twitter.com/jmtheacademy - where we also post important news and reminders. We will post the morning announcements - the ones your son or daughter may or may not listen to, but will definitely not tell you about either way - to each of these three sites daily. Also, don't forget that you will have access to PowerSchool after Labor Day. Finally, I encourage you to sign up for Remind accounts from teachers (mine is @f8d4bb for parents, and @6cfddg for students), as well as their Edmodo mailing lists (mine is https://edmo.do/g/8uzpem for parents, and https://edmo.do/g/9rur2q for students).

As we go through this freshman year together, students will have some wonderful experiences and make some lasting memories. They will have the opportunity to learn some valuable lessons about the rigors and demands of a challenging high school curriculum. When all is said and done at the end of the year, these freshmen will be fully prepared for success at BHS and beyond. Thank you for being a part of your son’s or daughter’s school family with us this coming year. Together, we can make it a great one.

John McDonald, Principal

Spotlight

Class of 2019 Spirit Time Capsule

The Class of 2019 Spirit Time Capsule is finished and sealed. You will need something like a baseball bat or a thick dwell to unpack it 23 years from now, because it is packed tight. The lighter, more fragile things are on the ends. When I retire, I will make the new principal aware that someone will be by to get it in 2039.
