Message from Principal Jackson
Thanksgiving is such a wonderful time of the year to reflect on the things we are grateful for and share that appreciation. One of the many things I am grateful for is our Evans community and all the support we receive from our families. Thank you!! I am incredibly blessed to be a Panther!
The cold weather is upon us, so I want to remind everyone that our doors do not open until 8:15. On really cold days, we will open up the vestibule doors and allow students to come into that area at 8:00. There will be no access into the building before 8:00.
MISD has some exciting news to share. Substitute pay has INCREASED. If you are interested in becoming a sub, please read the information provided in this newsletter.
On November 26 at 5:30, there is a PARENT REGISTRATION meeting for all current 8th grade parents in our Library. This meeting is designed to provide information on high school registration and what that process looks like. The high school APG (course selection) will be available online on December 3rd. Our counselors will be talking with our 8th graders about high school registration on December 21st. It is hard to believe that it is already time to begin thinking of next year. How time is flying!!!
Our 8th graders went on a CTE tour of all the high schools yesterday. We were complimented for having such an amazing group of young people. I couldn't agree more...we have FABULOUS kiddos at Evans!!
Thanksgiving break is November 19-23. I hope everyone has some fun plans in store! Happy Thanksgiving!

Volunteering in MISD requires Application every School Year
We are so lucky to have so many wonderful volunteers who make it possible for us to make our school the very best it can be! Please remember that if you are a returning volunteer, or maybe a first time MISD volunteer, that you must go online to fill out a Volunteer Application and be approved before you can serve in any capacity where you will have contact with students. Sometimes this takes a couple of weeks, so please do it as soon as possible! We need you!!!
Click HERE to go directly to the link. Thank you so very much! We look forward to having you on our campus!
Volunteer applications may take up to two weeks to be processed.
If after two weeks you have not been contacted regarding your volunteer status, please contact MISD Human Resources at 469-302-4117. DO NOT contact staff members at schools regarding your volunteer application. Your application is a confidential matter.
Once you are approved, you will be able to volunteer in the district throughout the school year.
