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,, or 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.

Car Rider Drop-Off Suggestions to Avoid Tardies


There have been a number of concerns lately about the length of the Car Rider line. While I can’t tell people when to drop off students in the morning, I can tell you that students can get into the building at 6:05am. The Car Rider line tends to get backed up between 6:30am and 7am. If you want to drop off between 6:05am and 6:30am, you may find that the line is either non-existent or moves more quickly. Students should come directly to the cafeteria where they can work on homework or talk to friends. The breakfast line usually opens about 6:40am. Students are tardy if they arrive to 1st Period after 7am.

Principal's Message

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019
As I sit here in my office on a quiet day in late May, another year has gone by. I recently had the privilege of watching the Class of 2019 walk across the stage at graduation. They were my second class to pass through the Academy, six hundred and fifty-two of Bartlett’s best and brightest. They had taken the freshman baton from the Class of 2018 and they ran with it. They were the first freshman class to take the Spirit Stick at Homecoming in 2015, and they were definitely spirited in all the best ways. I was always proud of them, but perhaps never more than seeing them graduate a couple of weeks ago. 

As I drove home that evening, it occurred to me that I was about to say goodbye to another freshman class, the Class of 2022. And it occurred to me that three years from now, they may be the last class of freshmen that I have the privilege of seeing graduate. They have been a wonderful class this year, maybe the best freshman class I have had to this point. That’s saying something, because every class I have had come through the Academy has been wonderful. I have been blessed. 

As I look back on forty years in education, I am grateful beyond words for the privilege and honor of knowing so many wonderful students, parents, teachers, and administrators. I hope they have learned half as much from me as I have learned from them. As I look forward to the next three years, I hope to savor those memories while I look to make a few more before I hang ‘em up. Thanks to all for the gift of having known you and for the privilege of having shared these hallways with you.  Classes of 2023, 2024, and 2025, I look forward to meeting you soon.
John McDonald, Principal

Academy Freshmen Medal at the World Language Fair

Freshman foreign language students had a great day at the World Language Fair.  Most of all, our students enjoyed the experience and grew because of it.  We had sixteen students from Bartlett 9th Grade Academy participate this year. We received 1st place in the Poster contest (Anastasia Karasev and Dawn Jardinico), 2nd place in the Level 2 Spanish Poetry Division for native speakers (Mariana Balderrama), 3rd place in Level 2 Spanish Poetry (Anastasia Karasev), and 2nd place in the Level 2 Vocabulary Quiz (Allie Knolton).
