Date Change – School Pictures
Please note that LS, MS, and US school pictures will be taken on Tuesday, September 8. Upper School students will report to the gym at assigned times to have their individual school pictures taken. Students must wear school uniforms and adhere to the dress code and grooming standards in the Parent Student Handbook.
Please welcome Mrs. Ellen Stewart as our Upper School Front Desk Receptionist. Mrs. Stewart also handles attendance for MS and US students. If you need to report an absence or sign your student out early, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dear TFA Family,
Now is the best time to join the Fine Arts Network (FAN) parent organization designed to support the fine arts at TFA. Consider buying ad space in theatre playbills or concert programs this year; these are a great way to advertise your company or create “Break a Leg” messages for your student. Band parents, who attend home games during marching band season, will love our new package designed with them in mind.
Please take time to review the new FAN patron levels and choose the best one for your family. These are exciting days in the Fine Arts Department at The First Academy. We hope to see you at student performances and art exhibits this year. Let’s see our students perform, improve, grow, and excel this year. Go to https://thefirstacademy.org/arts/fine-arts/ to learn more.
Thank you for your support!
