Check PowerSchool Attendance Weekly

Parents, please remember to check your child’s attendance on PowerSchool weekly, or after you have sent in a note. We have a very small window of time for making corrections, and we want your child’s attendance record to be 100% accurate. Sometimes notes don’t make it to the Attendance Office for one reason or another.
Emails (to vmoser@bartlettschools.org, jtaylor2@bartlettschools.org, or jmcdonald@bartlettschools.org) are always a good way to send a note or follow-up on a written note. Weekly checks will hopefully prevent situations at the end of the grading period, the semester, or the year, where we have inaccurate information and lack the ability to make changes.
Students, you can also monitor your attendance on PowerSchool and let us know about errors. This is good practice for second semester when you want to remain eligible for exam exemptions at the end of the year.

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

The Academy will begin its annual fundraiser for LeBonheur Children’s Hospital, in conjunction with GoJimGo, today. Students can buy a 4” X 5” placard for $1, or a 8” X 10” placard for $3. These placards will list the students name and be displayed on our service wall. If the school raises $500, we will have a Hat Day. If they raise $750, we will have a Hat Week. If they raise $1000, we will have a Pajama Day during the Hat Week.

Our new shipment of spirit wear for the Class of 2021 has arrived.

Our new shipment of spirit wear for the Class of 2021 has arrived. We now have the blue, red, and gray designs below in sizes S, M, L, XL, 2X, and 3X...long sleeve ($20) and short sleeve ($15). These are available everyday in the main office, and they will be available at Open House this Thursday.

At the end of the day Tuesday, Interim Grade Reports, PowerSchool Parent Portal letters, the PBIS Parent letter, and the new ESSA Military Parent Form will go home with all students. The Interim Grade Reports, the Parent Portal letters, and the PBIS Parent letters do not need to be signed or returned, but every student must return the ESSA Military Parent Form. All four forms will be available at Open House on Thursday night, for parents and students who did not receive a PowerSchool login, or parents who did not receive/return an ESSA Military Parent form.

On Thursday, students taking Lifetime Wellness will switch learning venues on Thursday, September 7th. Girls, who have been in the classroom, will begin reporting to the gym to dress out. Boys, who have been in the gym, will begin reporting to the classroom. �

Finally, on Thursday night, from 5-7pm, the Academy will hold its annual Open House/Club Fair at the Academy. Teachers will be available in their classrooms during this time to provide you with important information and contact/communication options. Staff will be available to assist you with Parent or Student PowerSchool Portal logins, or questions about interim grade reports. Open House is not a time for parent-teacher conferencing, but you will be able to make an appointment with the teacher at Open House for Parent-Teacher Conference night.

On Thursday, September 14th, Parent-Teacher Conferences are being held, and appointments are being scheduled for 3-6pm. Conferences will be by appointment only. If you have concerns about you son’s or daughter’s current academic progress based on their interim, or based on PowerSchool information, please make an appointment with the teacher at Open House (Thursday, September 7th, from 5-7pm) or email the teacher to set up an appointment. Please call the school if you have any difficulty setting up an appointment.

Principal's Message

Monday, July 31, 2017
 
I had the privilege of meeting about 400 of my new students this past Friday at our fourth annual Panther Camp. It was good to have students back in the building after a long quiet summer. A great time was had by all, and we are looking forward to a great year this year with the Class or 2021.
We hope to see all our Freshmen and their parents at the Academy this coming Tuesday for B Ready Day. We will open the doors at 8am and be available until 3:30pm. Come pick up a copy of your child’s schedule, tour the building and walk the schedule, meet teachers, and check out the new 2021 spirit wear.
We are excited to get started and look forward to working with this class to get a good start and and establish a solid foundation as they begin their high school experience. Thank you for sharing them with us. Let us know your concerns and feel free to ask us questions. You are our partners for the coming year. Together we can build for their success the next four years and beyond.
John McDonald, Principal
