Please see an article below regarding weekend events to honor institutions that have made contributions to the McKinney community, particularly the Black Community of old. These events are open to the public and one of the honoree's is our school, Leonard Evans, Jr. Middle School!
We will have our annual Hoops for Heart basketball game on March 8th. For the low price of $5, your child can come watch our very own Evans staff take on our Evans basketball players during 7th period. Ticket sales will begin the week of Feb 25th. All proceeds go to the American Heart Association. Our goal is to raise $8500. We can do this!!
A special thanks to our PTO for treating us to an amazing Chinese Buffet today. It was super yummy and we appreciate all you do for our staff!
Monday is a staff work day and a student holiday. Enjoy the three-day weekend! Spring Break is quickly approaching: March 11th-15th.

The Counselors will be in the library on February 22nd at 9 am for a Q&A coffee chat. The conversation will be centered around questions for incoming 6th, 7th and 8th graders for 2019-2020.
Applications for classes requiring them are due March 5th.
Keep Sick Children Home
We would like to remind all parents of the importance of keeping sick children home. When a student comes to school ill, he/she can spread illness by coughing, touching his/her nose/mouth and then touching objects that other students come in contact with.
Remember that fever is not the only sign of true illness and that fever is usually a late sign of an illness, or an illness that is progressing.
If your child is out sick remember to always send in a note from the Dr. or a parent note. MISD Health policies are in place to help ensure a healthy school where students can learn and grow. Please take a moment to review the exclusions that are listed below.
Guidelines for Returning to School after an Illness
In order to minimize the number of children that are ill, we ask you to please consider the following guidelines when making your decision to let your child attend school or return to school after an illness.
A student with any of the following symptoms must be excluded from school until such time as the student is free from symptoms.
The Evans PTO is offering new spirit wear as well as bringing back some old favorites. There is a long-sleeved t-shirt option as well as short-sleeved and glitter designs. The order form is attached or you can order online at www.evanspto.com. Spirit wear sales at school are scheduled for:
February 21 (at 6th grade registration meeting)
If you'd like to skip the line entirely, you can do everything online at www.evanspto.com.
