Message from Principal Jackson
Dear Panther Parents,
In less than a week, we embark together on the most unique start to school we have ever seen. We are excited and our teachers have been working long hours to make sure your child experiences engaging lessons virtually. We know there may be some bumps in the road, but we will continue to work together to make this experience a positive one for our Panthers.
Monday, August 10th is a big day. We have PTO’s School Supply Pick-up and Purchase event AND our final laptop deployment event. We are running these events simultaneously but in different locations on campus. School Supplies will be in the FRONT PARKING LOT of Evans. Laptop deployment will be in the BACK PARKING LOT BY THE CAFETERIA of Evans. Please go to the appropriate location based on what you are needing to accomplish.
PTO Supply Pick-up and Purchase in the front parking lot: 9:00 – 10:30 AND 5:30 – 7:00
LAPTOP Pick-up in the back parking lot: 9:00 – 10:30 AND 5:00 – 6:30
For Laptop pick-up, please have your child’s name and student ID# written on a piece of paper. This will make the pick-up process go much smoother. Also, if you checked out a laptop in the spring, please bring that and the charger with you to check back in, otherwise, you will not be allowed to check out a new MacBook laptop.
Also on Monday, you will be able to see your child’s schedule in your HAC account. Please be aware that some (very minimal) changes MAY have to occur after this point. We will do our best to keep this to a minimum. We encourage you to double check your child’s schedule on the 12th to make sure no changes have had to be made. Our first ever VIRTUAL MEET THE TEACHER website will be released on Monday afternoon. This link will provide introduction videos for each of our staff members, so you and your child can get to know a little bit about their teachers and our other amazing staff members. There is also a video of us crazy administrators walking our 6th graders through the building. Don’t laugh too hard…we are obviously not professional actors nor camera crew…LOL.
Fine Arts update: as per released by MISD, Fine Arts classes (choir, band, orchestra, theater, art, cheer, and drill) will be offered virtually for those parents who chose virtual instead of in-person classes starting September 3rd. Our teachers are top-notch and are prepared to give these virtual lessons for those staying remote to ensure all our students get a high level of instruction. As far as performances go, we are creating ways to allow our students to “show their stuff”…it will just not be in the traditional settings we are used to. Performances, field trips, and other gatherings are postponed for now. But again, we are getting creative and will find ways to feature our students and honor the hard work they have put forth.
Please see the Friday eNewsletter for important information on free meals being offered to our students and information about an exciting backpack give-a-way event being offered tomorrow at our MISD Stadium.
We are ready to get started and look forward to seeing all our Panthers’ faces (via Zoom, of course…for the time being). This will not last forever and we will be together again soon. Thank you for always partnering and supporting us. We are in this together and WE GOT THIS!
