Dear Everitt Families:

Happy Friday, Everitt community!


It was a wonderful week at Everitt! Students worked hard this week on their math MAP testing, on projects for classes, and on continuing to build relationships with each other and with the adults who are here to serve them.


On Wednesday at our staff meeting, we spent some time talking with one another about moments in which we have felt pride in our students this week. Hearing about those moments made all of us feel so proud of our students that I thought I would share some of them with all of you so that you can feel proud too!


Ms. Eudaly said, "Today I took my first period out for a quick brain break outside. Most of the students played four square or talked but two of them walked up the hill and picked up the trash that was littering the hill. I didn't ask them to do it. They just took it upon themselves. They made me so proud!"

Ms. Harris said, "Watching my 8th graders participate in the crew challenge this week made me so proud."

Ms. Maikranz said, "A student came up to me and apologized for being disrespectful to me last year in an interaction. They said that they are working hard this year to do better. It made me so proud!"

Ms. Mabry said, "A student in the band class volunteered to lead warmups on an instrument that was new to him. He was so brave and I was so proud."


We are so proud of our students! What did your children do to make you feel proud this week?


Thank you for supporting and believing in your neighborhood school. It is our privilege to partner with you!
