Message from Principal Jackson
It has been an exciting week at Evans. We started our new Panther Privilege Time (PPT) and the students that I have spoken to loved it. Please be mindful that not everyone was able to get one of their top choices this first go around. But have no fear, we have a plan for that. The PPT is on a four week cycle. At the end of the four weeks, students will have an opportunity to choose a new PPT event. Each cycle, students will choose their top options from a different content core class, thus giving a fair opportunity for every child to experience their top choice at some point throughout the year. We will not be making changes to PPT assignments. Even if students didn't get their favorite choice, they will gain exposure to other things that may end up being a perfect fit for them. Thanks for your support as we kick off this exciting opportunity for our Panthers!
We will kick-off our school-wide fundraiser on September 29th. Your child should bring home details next Friday. As with all fundraisers, safety is always our first priority, so please discuss the best and smartest way to go about making some sales.
A few things coming up next week:
Crape Myrtle Run is at Boyd High School tomorrow. Please come out and enjoy a fun-filled morning in support of a good cause. We have a fire drill on Monday at 10:45. "See You at the Pole" is Wednesday at 8:00am for anyone who wants to participate. We are also planning our first pep rally which will be October 4th (more details to come).
Although some of the following information is not new, we would like to remind you of a few policies we have in place here at Evans Middle School. We can't thank you enough for your cooperation!
Ordering Still Open for Fall Photos
Did you forget to order your student's fall pictures? No worries! There is still time. The online order system will no longer work for you, but you can call their customer care line at 1-800-348-4360 to order. Don't miss out on the memories!
Eighth Graders can take High School Classes Online
Right now is the first opportunity to take online classes for high school credit during 8th grade. There will be another one in the Spring and then summer school. If you are interested in taking Health, Professional Communications, Psychology or Sociology online in the fall, sign up is going on now. The course runs September 11 - January 12 and costs $220 per class ($50 free/reduced lunch). Health and Professional Communications are high school required classes. Psychology and Sociology are elective credit only. Sign up and payment can be made to Mrs. DeLisle (email@example.com) in the counselors office. Please make checks payable to McKinney ISD.

Evans Football Concession Stand Sign-Ups
Evans PTO needs volunteers to help run the Evans football concessions stand at home games. The games are on Tuesday evenings at McKinney High School. Even volunteering for just one shift would make a tremendous impact. We also need high school volunteers so if you have a high school student who needs service hours, here is an opportunity. All concession stand volunteers must wear closed toed shoes. If you have any questions, please contact Priscilla Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sign up to Volunteer
Please remember that you must be approved through MISD before you can volunteer. Please click HERE to go online and complete your application.
Last year applications will run out at the end of September.
If you are a parent of a student with a health concern, please make sure you complete the health history form, and also contact me in the clinic directly! Thank you for updating this vital information every year.
Medication at School
Please keep in mind that MISD has a No Tolerance policy regarding medication possession. Students are not to carry medication of any kind at anytime (except inhalers/epi-pens with specific written MD and parental consent). All medications administered at school must be brought to the clinic by the parent or guardian, stored in the clinic and the MISD medication administration form completed.
ALL 7th graders for Vision/Hearing/AN. We will start those screenings in September.
All 8th graders will get screened for scoliosis, probably starting in October.
Lost Glasses will be turned into the clinic and kept here. If your student ever loses their glasses, remind them to check here.
