Message from Principal Jackson
Dear Panther Parents,
Evans Middle School is excited to honor and celebrate Lynn Sperry, MISD School Board Member. She has served on our board for 34 years. She was a music teacher years ago after graduating from Ohio State. Her favorite hobby is volunteering, which speaks to her heart and the dedication she gives back to our district. We appreciate her more than we can express.
MLK holiday is MONDAY, January 20th. Enjoy the 3-day weekend!!
Our 4th Annual PTO Parent Enrichment Night is Tuesday, January 21st from 6-8. Free childcare is provided. Our fabulous counselors will be offering sessions for you to choose from. This is always a huge success and the feedback always positive. Please come out and join us for the evening!!
The Great Kindness Challenge is fast approaching. January 27-31 we will be using "The Force" of kindness (yes, Star Wars reference). We will be collecting socks and travel-sized personal hygiene products for trustedworld.org.
For all 8th grade parents:
Our counselors met with all 8th graders this week. Registration forms for current 8th grade students are due January 27th. There is an online course guide on MISD website if you want to take a glance.
A note from Nurse Yarbrough:
SCOLIOSIS SCREENING: We will be conducting scoliosis screening at Evans Jan. 21 and Jan 22. Twelve year old females and 13 year old. males will be screened this year.
Most of our screening will be conducted on Tuesday and Wednesday of that week, using the rest of the week as needed.
If you do not want your student screened, please provide a doctor note stating your student has already been screened.
Girls will need to wear a halter-top, sports bra or a two piece swimsuit with pants, shorts, or skirt.
Boys will wear their pants or gym shorts and only remove their shirts.
January 27th also marks the first 3-week progress report deadline. Yes, this is a Monday which is different. Please encourage students to check their grades and attend tutorials. Reminder that students can still turn in assignments that contain "X"s but once it becomes a "Z" the assignment can no longer be accepted.
Happy Friday and enjoy the 3-day weekend,
