Message from Principal Darla Jackson
IPR grades will be posted in HAC next week for you to view. We also have district assessments coming up for each of our core content areas. Please encourage your kiddo to study in advance instead of waiting until the last minute to study. It is also helpful for students to have a healthy breakfast on these important days (and everyday).
This is an amazing time of year to come out and support our fine arts departments. The holiday concerts are fabulous. Please see calendar below for details. We can't wait for you to join us!
For 8th grade parents: Our wonderful counselors are hosting a high school registration information meeting on December 5th at 5:30 in our Evans Library. The course selection guide has not been released yet, but this is still a very informative meeting and it is a great opportunity to ask some questions about HS registration...it is just around the corner. We look forward to having a great turn-out.

Spelling Bee Information
We are very excited to announce that Evans Middle School will be participating in the Scripps National Spelling Bee once again. One smart speller will represent Evans at the County level.
Our MISD District Spelling Bee is scheduled for Thursday, January 5th at 6:00pm in the McKinney Boyd Auditorium, and the MISD winner will move on to the Collin County Spelling Bee on February 1st.
The word lists are available here by clicking on your grade level, (8 7 6) in ELAR classes, and the offices. You will have three weeks to study the list if you picked it up today!
We will not be having an in class Bee this year. Students will qualify by attending one of the Spelling Bee Workshops. Students can contact Mrs. Gilbert, in D207, to arrange a morning Workshop if they cannot attend an after school Workshop.
The workshops will teach the students what to expect and how to participate in a spelling bee.
Spirit Wear Days now on Friday
NEW DAY!! Spirit wear will now be on Fridays so that students and teachers are wearing their spirit wear on the same day. Evans students, plan to begin wearing your spirit wear on Fridays, this coming Friday, November 4th. Let's see if we can have the entire campus covered in spirit wear on Friday, November 4th and all Fridays for the rest of the school year. Go Panthers!
Did you know you can show support for our school and sit comfortably at those sporting events?! Come check out our Evans stadium cushions at the next Spirit raffle/sale day and while you're at it, grab an Evans spirit shirt for yourself!

Zero-cost fundraising is a GREAT way to help your school at no additional cost to you. Box Tops are found on everything from toilet paper to boxed goods. Just clip the Box Tops labels as you use your products and collect them in an easy-to-access place.
Evans PTO plans three contests this school year, and the first one runs from now through Thanksgiving Break. Three grade-level winners will be announced and a variety of prizes will be available (more details to follow). Please send your Box Tops to school with your student in a sealed bag (labeled with name AND grade), so we can give credit to your student. Box Tops can be left in the front office, and the PTO will collect weekly. We sincerely appreciate your help with this fundraising effort that can make a difference in what programs we can provide for our students, our teachers and our school.
