We were privileged to have a visit from Bob Trainor this morning. He led a Prayer Walk at the Academy on September the 8th, and brought by a couple of display boards with pictures and well-wishes. It was a privilege to shake his hand and thank him for his commitment to schools, students, and the Bartlett community.
Tim Jones and I want to recognize the hard work and accomplishments of our teachers and students this past year. For the second year in a row, Bartlett High School and Bartlett Ninth Grade Academy have been recognized by the State of Tennessee as a Reward School. This is the highest honor a school can receive for its performance on state mandated tests.
Below, Academy English and Math teachers celebrate this accomplishment. Thanks go out to all teachers and staff, parents and students at to our respective schools for what they do each day to make the learning environment a productive one.
Now, to start working for a third banner for the coming year...
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 email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com) 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.
Don't forget to go online and pay for laptop insurance. All laptops must be insured by the end of the month to ensure uninterrupted access.
Teachers, Coaches, and Club Sponsors:
Please come out and support the athletic programs by participating in the 4th Annual Panther Pride 5K Run September 28th, 2019 at 9:00AM at Freeman Park. This is great opportunity for our high school teachers, clubs, and sports programs to show support for our athletes. I have attached the flyer to this email and will be placing a flyer in your boxes to post in your classrooms. Please help us out, by announcing the event to your classes and encouraging kids to sign up early to receive the lowest cost to participate in this event. Also, if you are able and willing to offer any type of incentive for participating in this event, please do so as well. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
