Message from Principal Jackson
Monday is our 7th grade Science field trip. Please make sure you send your kiddo to school prepared for an outdoor experience. That night, our Panther Band will play at MHS. Come join us and see how far our students have advanced this year. They sound remarkable.
On Tuesday, yearbooks will be distributed during lunches. Please talk with your child about yearbook etiquette and the importance of writing positive notes to others when asked to sign.
Wednesday is our Cheer Showcase. Thursday is the Pantherette Banquet and also the parent meeting at 6:30 in D106 for anyone interested in the Student European Trip.
May 24th is our 8th grade PSA Celebration. 8th graders were given a permission slip this week and those are DUE ON MONDAY. Students without a completed permission slip will not be able to participate in that event. Thanks guys!
Advanced Theater students are directing their own plays on May 24th at 7:00. They do an amazing job...come join us in supporting them.
We do not have school on Memorial Day, May 27th. Enjoy that 3 day weekend!
The last day of school is May 30th. It is so hard to believe that our 8th graders are moving up to high school. I am so honored to have been their principal all three years. They have made me laugh, they have challenged my thinking at times, and they have made my love for education grow. They are simply the best and I will miss each and every one of them, but I know they are leaving Evans prepared for whatever exciting things come their way!!
May 31st is Panther Palooza for our incoming 6th graders. This is a student event that provides them a chance to tour our campus and meet our staff. It is lots of fun, so spread the word that we are excited to have them join us that day.

European Trip in Spring Break 2020

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 email@example.com.
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. We will post the online order link next week.
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.
Please Pick Up Medicine from Clinic
The school clinic is unable to store any medications at school during the summer. The nurse will dispose of any medication in the clinic after the last day of school. McKinney ISD has a policy against sending any medication home with a student; therefore, you must come in personally and pick up any medications remaining in the clinic. Medication will not be sent home with your child. Please remember that you will need to fill out new medication forms for the 2019-2020 school year.
