Dear Everitt Families:

Happy Friday, Everitt community!

We are enjoying the cooler weather here at Everitt and hope you are, too.

Our construction is continuing in a positive direction. The material for our secure vestibule for our new entrance has been delayed and we are anticipating completion of the vestibule by the end of this month. The delay of the vestibule has caused delays for our signage as well but soon the vertical white posts will contain signage directing visitors to our new entrance on the south side of our building. The wood paneling for the entrance into the office area/main hall should be put in next week so you are likely to see people working on the building when you come for parent/teacher conferences on Tuesday.

Speaking of conferences, below you will find more information about how in-person and remote conferences will work next week. We are very much looking forward to meeting with you and your child!

Many of our clubs are now up and running, we will have a table at conferences with information about the clubs and an opportunity to sign up for clubs as well. The information for clubs will also be on our website soon! It is wonderful to see the students engaged in shared passions together.

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


Amanda Pouliot, Interim Principal

Things Happening at Everitt!


We are very excited to see you all at conferences next week! There is much to celebrate. It is also a wonderful opportunity for teachers, parents/guardians, and students to have conversations about how we can team together to ensure each student's success.

You should have received emails for Sign Up Genius for remote (online) conferences with each of your child's teachers. The online conferences will take place on Wednesday, October 6th from 4:00-6:30. Spots are filling quickly but, fear not, you can still have conferences with your child's teachers if the remote conferences are all taken.

On Tuesday, October 5th, we will have in-person conferences here at Everitt from 4:00-6:30 pm. While you are at conferences, please come to the top of the stairs to sign up for clubs and get your child's CMAS and MAP data. You can find your child's teachers in these locations:

  • 6th grade teachers will be in the cafeteria
  • 7th grade teachers will be in the gym
  • 8th grade teachers will be in the library
  • Elective teachers will be in the lounge at the top of the stairs

We've asked teachers to keep the in-person conferences to 5 minutes or less so that we can meet with as many families as possible. If you feel that you may need more time, please call your child's counselor and schedule a time through them.

See you next week!

Changes in Everitt Staff

Please welcome the following new members to the Everitt family:

  • Angela Cummins will join us on October 4th as an ELA teacher for Team 7 Gold and one Team 6 Gold class. We are excited for you all to meet her and are grateful to Ms. Ferraro, Ms. Maikranz, and Ms. Piane for teaching ELA until Ms. Cummins could join us!
  • Sarah Burt joined us this week as a learning specialist working primarily with 7th graders. We are so happy to have her!
  • We would also like to welcome Ms. Aronson's baby to the Everitt family! Ms. Aronson is out on leave. We are grateful for Mary Handzel and Tammy Carpenter who are alternating weeks to provide support to our students whose last names begin with L-Z.

We also wish the best of luck to our campus supervisor, Justin Martinez, who has decided to retire. This is Justin's 5th year at Everitt and 12th year serving in the district. He retires after working with kids for 25 years!
