We hope to see everyone at Prestley Mill for our movie night tonight from 7-10pm We are watching Hotel Transelvania!!
Here is the PowerPoint that was used in the parent meeting on the 16th.
We are asking for all parents to sign their child up for a lunch account so that you can get an official lunch number. You do not have to pay online, but it will allow our lunch provider to be able to notify parents when accounts balances are low. It will also allow parents to see how much money is in their child's account. You can still send in cash or a check made out to Brighten Academy. You also have the option to pay online as well. We are having a competition between the 7th and 8th grade homerooms. The first homeroom to have 100% of their students registered will receive a dress down pass. Each student who signs up also gets a dress down pass.
Help Mrs. Rogers' class win!!!

Please attend our parent information night on Tuesday, September 16th at 6:00. We will give you an overview of expectations and events throughout the school year.
This is a great opportunity to ask questions about procedures, meet your child's academic teachers, and tour the school.
We look forward to see you on Tuesday at 6pm at the Prestley Mill Campus.
Thank you so much for supporting our school library fundraiser. We were able to surpass our goal of $3000, with our profits totaling over $5000! These funds will go directly to our new media center.
The cookie dough will be delivered on Thursday, September 18. Plan to come to Fowler field (at the entrance to the Brookmont neighborhood) from 2 - 4:30 pm Thursday to pick up your order. Each bucket weighs over 3 lbs. so we cannot send them home with students. Students in ASP will have their orders with them when they are picked up.
Any remaining money due will need to be collected and returned to the school by September 24th, please be sure to send money in an envelope with the student's name and total amount enclosed, checks should be made out to Brighten Academy.
If you would like to help volunteer to distribute orders please meet at Fowler Field at 2 pm.
Again, thank you all so much for making this such a successful fundraiser for our library.

Parking at the New School will be limited, however there is over flow parking located at the First Baptist Church as well as the office building located across from the school on Prestley/Timber Ridge intersection. Please be respectful of these properties to enable for our continued usage. Neither location is responsible for lost or damaged property and parking is at owners risk.

There have been many technical and logistical issues with the Class Dojo since the beginning of the year. All of the middle school teachers are suspending the consequences for Class Dojo until further notice. We will still enter dings and dongs to help you know what is happening in class. Students will be able to dress down on Fridays until we have all of the issues worked out.
Thank you for understanding,
