Dear Everitt Families:

Happy Spring Break, Everitt families! I hope you enjoy the time you have with your children at home next week. Just a reminder that students do not return until Tuesday, March 29th from Spring Break. Teachers and staff have a work day on March 28th.


Starting on March 29th, we will move recess to the north side of the building (where there are basketball courts and a field to play on). We believe, as many of you do, that the north side is more conducive to active play during recess. We are excited for this change and look forward to using this larger space! If you would like to help provide basketballs, footballs, soccer balls and frisbees for recess, please see the PTA section for more information.


At Everitt, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will be taking the CMAS reading and math tests (or CoAlt tests) during the week of April 4th-8th and our 8th graders will be taking the science tests during the weeks of April 11th-15th and April 18th-22nd. If you would like to opt your child out of CMAS or CoAlt testing, please send me an email letting me know. See below for our CMAS schedule.


Just a reminder about the dress code as the weather becomes warmer. As we move into the warm weather of spring, we often discover that our children's clothes aren't fitting as they did in the fall. Should students choose to wear a zip-up jacket or hoodie, they need to be sure that what they are wearing under the hoodie is school appropriate as well since hoodies are often removed in the warmer weather. There is a reminder of the dress code image below.


This last week, our students selected their elective classes for next year. Your child received access to a google form through which to select their top elective choices. See below for more information.


I hope your week is full of sunshine and fun!


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

Lunch Bunch and Thursday Morning Volunteers:

Want to lend a hand at the school? Sign up to spend some time socializing with the students during lunch and recess or on Thursday mornings before late start. Thank you in advance for donating your time and making our community stronger!

Lunches are broken up into 3 sections. With some exceptions, they are generally 6th graders 1st, 7th graders 2nd and 8th graders 3rd. Each lunch is 30 minutes. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays they run one after another, on the block days of Wednesday and Thursday there is a 10-15 minute gap between lunch sections. If you want to come for just one or 2 sections that is no problem, but you are also welcome to stay the entire lunch time!

When you arrive go to the main office to sign-in and fill out volunteer paperwork (the first time only) and then head to the cafeteria or library. You can bring an activity (like a football, 4 square ball etc) or just join in with what's going on!

Questions? Email everittpta@gmail.com or call 720-291-1435 (Dan Weinstein)

Sign up for Lunch Bunch here!


Speaking of lunch, we would love your help in providing fun things for students to do during both inside recess (on inclement weather days) and outside recess. Here is a Sign-Up Genius if you would like to help!


Our next PTA meeting will be Wednesday, April 6th from 6:30-7:30 pm. It will be followed by SAC from 7:30-8:30 pm.

Request Elective Classes Now

This week our current 6th and 7th grade students received information regarding requesting their electives for next year during their current elective classes and intervention classes on Wednesday and Thursday. Students were either provided with the google form link directly or shown how to locate the form on the Everitt counseling webpage (located at the top of the page here: https://sites.google.com/jeffcoschools.us/everitt-schoolcounselors/home ). The counselors are asking that all students request their electives for next year by the end of the day on March 28th. The counselors will do their best to place students in their requested electives but cannot guarantee elective placement. Any questions can be directed to either Kelsey Cockrell (Kelsey.Cockrell@jeffco.k12.co.us) or Kirsten Aronson (Kirsten.Aronson@jeffco.k12.co.us).

8th Grade Field Trip to Warren Tech

Attention all eighth graders and their families. On the morning of April 7th all Everitt eighth graders will be attending the Warren Tech Field Trip!


Warren Tech is Jeffco's designated career and technical education center that offers high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to engage in real-world professional projects, earn college credits, credits towards high school graduation, and industry certifications. The Warren Tech field trip is a chance to learn more about Warren Tech and see firsthand all the incredible opportunities that they have to offer Jeffco students.


More information and permission slips will be handed out in classes next Monday, March 14th and due next Friday the 18th.


We are also in need of parent volunteers to chaperone this field trip. If you are interested in chaperoning or have any questions please reach out to our counselors Kelsey Cockrell Kelsey.Cockrell@jeffco.k12.co.us or Kirsten Aronson Kirsten.Aronson@jeffco.k12.co.us

Teacher Assistant Student Application

Students who request to be a Teacher Assistant (TA) for next year will receive a Teacher Assistant Application in their email as a google form the week after spring break. In the google form they will receive more information regarding TA requirements and answer a few questions about why they would be a successful TA at Everitt. Students who fill out a TA application are not guaranteed to be selected as a TA for next year. Students can request to be an office, library, or teacher TA. Once students apply to be a TA the office staff, library staff, and teachers will receive a list of students who have applied to be a TA and will make their selections from there. After TA selections have been made, the counselors will meet with students to schedule accordingly. Any questions can be directed to either Kelsey Cockrell (Kelsey.Cockrell@jeffco.k12.co.us) or Kirsten Aronson (Kirsten.Aronson@jeffco.k12.co.us).
