Message from Principal Jackson
Today's IMPACT Celebration became very eventful as we were surprised by a spring storm that wasn't even in the forecast! The students were amazing and the staff and parent volunteers couldn't have been more helpful. We got everything and everybody moved indoors safely and the party continued on! It's always fun to have a wonderful time with kids!
Monday is Memorial Day, which is a student holiday. Enjoy that three day weekend. Only 8 more days of school until summer. Let's make them the best yet!!
8th grade Celebration is June 5th. We will be having a full day of fun at PSA. Can't wait to celebrate their last few days as a middle school student.
Happy Memorial Weekend,
Our 8th grade Celebration is at PSA on June 5th. This is a wonderful day for our outgoing students. We offer a little bit of everything, thanks to our wonderful PTO. There is a game truck, sports tournaments, DJ Horrice, concession stand options (bring a little money that day), graffiti wall, hamster ball races, movie room, and much more. We will be at PSA from 10:00-1:00 and will return to Evans for regular lunch.
If you have an incoming Panther, please join us for our first annual PANTHER PALOOZA. Incoming 6th graders are invited to campus on June 8th from 9-10:30 for a morning of fun. There will also be an opportunity to join our PTO and to buy spirit wear. We are excited to meet our new Panther friends.
Friendly reminder that our building opens at 8:15 each morning. If you drop your child off earlier than that, please remind them that playing wall ball and other ball sports is unsafe and prohibited in front of the building due to traffic moving through the parking lot at that time. Also, please follow drop-off and pick-up procedures per our campus expectations and follow the lead of our teachers on duty as they are working hard to get our students into and out of the building in a safe manner.
The MISD school calendar for 2018-2019 is also available now.

Need a Yearbook?
Yearbooks were passed out on Thursday. The printing company always sends a few "over-runs" and we have 25 extra books to sell. If your child did not get a yearbook and would still like one, send $45 cash or check made out to Evans Middle School. They can go to Mrs. Goodwin in E104 to buy. Yearbook will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.
If you're unsure if you've purchased one already and would like to double-check, email Bonnie Goodwin directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Message from the Registrar
As we approach the end of the school year it is important that we have up-to-date information for every student. Please look at the following items and make sure that you are prepared for next year!
EMAIL ADDRESS - Does the school have your email address so that you receive important reminders and know when to complete the online registration update this summer?
HOME ACCESS CENTER (HAC) - Do you know your HAC login and password? It is important that you know this so that you can check your child's progress and see their report card. If you need this information, please contact an AP secretary or the registrar.
MOVING FROM MCKINNEY? -If your child will be moving to a school other than an MISD school, please contact Lynne Wells, Lywells@mckinneyisd.net, prior to the end of the year so that we can give you the withdrawal papers you will need to enroll at the new school.
THOSE ELIGIBLE FOR DRIVER'S LEARNERS PERMIT WILL NEED A VERIFICATION OF ENROLLMENT FORM BEFORE SCHOOL DISMISSES I know that the thought of your student getting a learner's permit is probably scary, but they will need a Verification of Enrollment (VOE) when they apply at the Texas Department of Public Safety. If your child turns 15 over the summer and will be applying for a learner's permit, please make sure to request a VOE from the registrar before the last day of school. VOE's are NOT required to enroll in driver's education programs, they are only needed when you actually apply for the permit. Please contact Lynne Wells, firstname.lastname@example.org , to obtain a VOE.
Sixth Graders Need Immunizations Updated by May 30
6th grade students need to turn in proof of immunization requirements BEFORE June 1st to get their schedule and attend 7th grade next fall. Texas State Law requires that 7th grade students for the 2018-2019 school year show proof of the following immunizations:
Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap) within the past 5 years
Meningococcal vaccine (one dose)
(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.
Shot Van is available on May 18th from 5-7 pm at Lawson Early Childhood Center 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 attend 7th grade.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
PTO Meeting Friday, May 11
PTO Board Members Needed
Panther parents, we are looking for a few more wonderful people who are interested in making a difference in the lives of our Evans educators and our students. We have the following positions open on the PTO Board:
**Teacher Appreciation ... what's more fun than recognizing the contributions of our staff with a few special events each year? A detailed book is available with past events/costs/volunteer needs, etc.
**Concessions (2 co-chairs) ... our PTO makes thousands of dollars by shopping for and staffing the concession stand at home football games. It's a limited time position since it ends when the last Evans football game is played.
**8th Grade Activities ... help us celebrate our 8th graders at this special end-of-the-year event. This is another limited time activity.
Please email email@example.com ASAP if you'd be interested in helping. We'd like to have a full board to vote on at our May 11th general meeting. We need you, and it's so rewarding to be such a big part of our school. Most importantly, our PTO fosters a sense of school community while supporting students. We play a crucial role in helping to create an environment that is nurturing, educational, and exciting for all of our Panthers. Please consider joining the PTO! You can download the membership form or purchase your membership online.
