Message from Principal Jackson
We have watched our students grow, overcome challenges, and celebrate successes...and now it is time to say good-bye. For our 6th and 7th graders, we look forward to seeing you in a couple of months, but for our 8th graders, you are moving on to high school where you will accomplish amazing things. Please keep in touch, best of luck to each of you, and always remember, once a Panther, always a Panther!

Semester 1 runs July 9 - 16, Semester 2 runs July 18-25

If you are interested, your student needs to pick up a registration form in the counselor's office. Questions? Contact Cathy DeLisle at email@example.com .
If your student turns 15 during the summer break and plans to apply for a Driver's Learning Permit before school starts, make sure you see Lynne Wells to get a Verification of Enrollment form. This form is needed to apply for the learner's permit. Please contact Mrs. Wells at 469-302-7105 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
School Supply Packs
As an added convenience and part of our service to our Evans Panther community, the PTO offers school supply packs for purchase. We're pleased to tell you that we are including ear buds (compatible with our school laptops) for each pack for the 2019-2020 school year. Click here for the ink to order online or at school.
Immunizations Required for Seventh Grade
6th grade students, it is time to turn in your proof of immunization requirements! Texas State Law requires that 7th grade students for the 2019-2020 school year show proof of the following immunizations:
Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap) within the past 5 years
Meningococcal vaccine (one dose) within the past 5 years
(On top of the immunizations that were required for elementary)
Your child may have already had these immunizations. Please provide the school nurse with a current list of your student's immunizations. Please make sure that your student receives any needed immunizations before the end of this school year.
It is necessary for your child to be in compliance before they can get their schedule for 7th grade and attend school in the fall. Winter break makes a great time to get these shots!!
Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.
