Message from Principal Jackson
We are so excited to begin a new school year. Thank you to all the families that joined us at Meet the Teacher night. We had an amazing turnout and it was great seeing how much our kiddos have grown up over the summer. Another huge thanks to everyone who joined the Community picnic on Thursday night. Our staff had a blast mingling with our families and cooking up some hot dogs for everyone. Thanks Officer Lee for being a super chef!!
Evans' doors open at 8:15 daily. There is no supervision before this time, so please be mindful of that and try to not drop your child off before that time. When students come into the building in the mornings, there is a NEW procedure for where they go. 6th grade students will go to the 6th grade hallway and sit along the lockers. 7th grade students will go to the 7th grade hallway and sit along the lockers. 8th grade students will go to the large gym and have free seating in the bleachers. Only breakfast eaters will be allowed to stay in the cafeteria and they will eat on the bottom 2 levels. Supervision will be provided in all areas.
Students will be given a yellow copy of their schedule on Monday morning in 1st period. There should not be many students who receive a different schedule from what was given at Meet the Teacher, but there are a few schedules that did have to change. If your child has a schedule they would like to change, there are schedule change forms in the Counselors' Corner. Not all requests for changes will be made, based on availability and conflicts in schedules. Lockers for 7th and 8th graders will be given out per request and students will have a chance to do that on Monday morning. All 6th graders receive lockers.
Drop-off and Pick-up: NO cars can drop off/pick-up students in the back of the building this school year. The only transportation allowed in the back of the building are our buses and parents with a "Back Parking Access" pass. Please be mindful of this and follow these procedures to help keep students safe. Traffic is always a little heavier at the beginning of the year, so please plan accordingly.
Uber Eats and other food transportation: MISD does NOT allow students to receive food from outside delivery services. If you are planning to bring food to your child, please know that we do not call down to classrooms to let students know their food has arrived; this is a disruption to instruction. Also, if you bring food for your child, no other students/friends of your child will be able to eat the food brought to school.
We are looking forward to having the best Panther year EVER!!

Message from the PTO President
The Evans PTO would like to welcome you for a very exciting 2018-2019 school year. Last year, the PTO:
* Awarded $3000 in teacher grants
* Sponsored the IMPACT carnival and 8th Grade celebration
* Funded two scholarships to graduating Evans' seniors
* Presented multiple parent enrichment workshops
* Helped to support academic programs like the spelling bee, UIL, and AVID
* Hosted teacher appreciation events throughout the year
Most importantly, our PTO plays a crucial role in helping to create an environment that is nurturing, educational, and exciting for all of our Panthers. Our membership form is attached to this email. Please consider printing out this form and bringing it with you to Meet the Teacher on August 14th. Or go online at www.evanspto.com.
* August 14 - Meet the Teacher: In addition to picking up schedules and meeting teachers, you can pick up school supply packs, order spirit wear, become a PTO member, and help us kick off our check-writing campaign. Again this year we will be offering "early bird hours" from 11 am - 1 pm. (The schedules and teachers will not be available during this time, but you can get spirit wear, membership, and school supplies without the long lines.)
After overwhelming parent feedback, we are again offering a check-writing campaign as our fundraiser ... NO SELLING required. But, to meet our budget, we need all families to participate. For every $10 donated, your family will receive a raffle entry for some amazing prizes donated by local business. The fundraiser runs until August 31, but we will kick off the fundraiser at Meet the Teacher with a complimentary raffle ticket for each new membership and double tickets for all donations made that day.
The Evans PTO is offering new spirit wear as well as bringing back some old favorites. There is a long-sleeved t-shirt option as well as short-sleeved and glitter designs. The order form is attached or you can order online at www.evanspto.com.
If you'd like to skip the line entirely, you can do everything online at www.evanspto.com.
We are looking forward to another amazing year at Evans and partnering with our families to keep our school outstanding!
President, Evans PTO
