Bartlett Education Foundation announces Golf-A-Thon Fundraising Event

Thanks to Jason Taylor for organizing the Academy's Golf-A-Thon fundraiser team, and for teachers Jason Martin, Zack Clark, and DJ Simpson, along with guest golfer David Creech (not a teacher), for representing the Academy in this great cause. Thanks to Bartlett Education Foundation and John Cox for organizing this event. Fun was had by all, and money was raised to support Bartlett City Schools.

Thanks for coming to the Bartlett Academy Fall Open House and Club Fair - Thursday, September 8th, from 5-7PM

What a great Open House we had tonight at the Academy. It was so wonderful to meet parents and talk to them. We had a great crowd. I did not make it to the gym this evening, but I heard we had a great crowd down there at the club fair as well. I hope someone got some good pictures, but as usual, I was having such a great time talking to students and their parents that I didn't think about pictures until I was driving home. To all the parents who came out tonight, it was a pleasure meeting you, thank you for being there, and thank you for sharing your sons and daughters with us each day. In case you missed it, club signups will continue through September.

Update: Academy 1:1 Laptop Rollout Update: Academy Phase 1, Part 2, and Phase 2 - Wednesday, September 14th and Thursday, September 15th

Students who had a laptop last year who did not receive their laptops during Phase 1 in August, should receive their laptops in Phase 1, Part 2, this Wednesday and Thursday (September 14th and 15th). Phase 2 students who were not part of the 1:1 Laptop program last year will also receive their laptops at this time if they have completed and turned in their Student Equipment Agreement Form and paid their insurance for this year. We are also hopeful to resolve connectivity, software, and email access issues for students who have received their laptops already.

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
