Welcome Letter 2018

August 5, 2018

Dear Escambia Academy Families:

We are very excited about starting the 2018-19 school year. Our number one goal for this year is to “give each child a year that will have a positive influence on their life, for a lifetime.”

As most of you know, this will be my first full year as the headmaster at Escambia Academy. I have learned much this summer. I have woken each morning with doing what is best for your child in my mind and in my heart. Getting our curriculum stronger, making our staff better and maintenance of the buildings and grounds has been my number one priorities. It has been a fulfilling summer and now it is time for “the rubber to hit the road.”

We will have a “meet and greet” on Tuesday August 7th from 3:00 until 6:00pm. This is optional, but we’d love to have you come by. Feel free to visit the classroom and ask questions to the teachers. At Escambia Academy, we believe that the strongest link to your child’s education is the teacher/parent link. The lunchroom will also be open if you have any questions.

Wednesday is the first day of school for students and school starts at 7:45am each day. Students are considered tardy if they are not in the room when the bell rings at 7:50. Please be sure students are dressed appropriately each day. Students are not required to wear chapel uniforms until Wednesday, August 15th. Please be aware that Chapel uniforms are required for students (Skirts and white button up shirts for females / Long Khaki pants and button up white shirts for males) Every Wednesday. School will be full days on Thursday and Friday (school dismissal at 3:00).

We are going to provide an enrichment elective for grades 1 thru 4 this year. We are also providing middle school physical education/ weight lifting separate from the high school. We are also adding Art, Mentoring, Basic Vocational Tech class (home repair, basic carpentry), duel enrollment, and office aides to our high school electives. Hopefully all individual schedules are complete since that time has already passed.

In closing, if you have any questions or complaints please send them by way: Text, email or call. Nobody can help you with a school problem at EA better than myself. Dawn Kelly will be our new Office Manager this year and can be reached at 251-368-2080. WE ARE FAMILY!

 

COUGAR PRIDE,

Coach Hugh Fountain

Congratulations to Sophomores Madelyn Smith, Gaines Tanner, and Anna Ruth Smith being selected as the Escambia Academy 2018 HOBY (Hugh O’Brien Youth) representatives!

These three amazing sophomores were chosen by their teachers based on their attitudes, leadership qualities, and motivation to make great changes in their school and community. They will attend the HOBY conference at Troy University this summer. We are so proud of all three of them!

Assistant Headmaster and Head Football Coach Hugh Fountain has been promoted to the position of headmaster

By | News

The Board of Directors of Escambia Academy is delighted to announce that our esteemed Assistant Headmaster, Hugh Fountain, has been elevated to the position of Headmaster! His love for the Cougars is evident in all that he does for our school and students both on and off the field. This is a time for proven leadership and dedication and there is no doubt that Coach Fountain can bring those skills to bear in this new roll.

This exciting change is a pivotal step in moving Escambia Academy in the direction of growth and stability needed to carry our great legacy forward for generations to come.

We are excited that Coach Fountain has agreed to take this opportunity as Mr. Heigle resigned his post as Headmaster, effective immediately.

Please join us in congratulating Headmaster Fountain. Your continued love and support of EA is what makes this school family so special. May God bless you, your family and Escambia Academy.
Regards,
Mike Campbell
