We have a busy couple of weeks coming up at the Academy:
First of all, on Friday, September 1st, the Academy will begin its annual fundraiser for LeBonheur Children’s Hospital, in conjunction with GoJimGo, on Friday, September 1st. 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.
A reminder, there is no school on Monday, September 4th, in observance of Labor Day.
On Tuesday, Student PowerSchool Portal letters will be distributed during English classes on Tuesday, September 5th, and English teachers will help students login to check their grades.
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. �
Also on Thursday, students will take Fall Pictures during math classes. These pictures will be used in the BHS 2018 Panther Parade Yearbook. Parents will be contacted by email from Holland Studios regarding proofs and ordering information. Make-up pictures will be done on Friday, September 29th.
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.
There will be no school for students on Friday, September 15th, as this will be a professional learning day for teachers.
