Dear Everitt Families:

Thank you for finishing your enrollment for next year! It makes a huge difference to us to know what your plans are.


This week, a team came to Everitt to install ultra-violet disinfection systems in our HVAC system and, as you probably noticed, our signs were installed! We are very excited about our new, clear signage.


Today, I met with our Sources of Strength students to hear about their wonderful ideas for grade level social events. More information is coming soon about those events but I can tell you that their plans are amazing and our students are going to love them!


We will hold parent/teacher conferences on February 10th from 4-6:30 pm. These conferences are by invitation only. If teachers feel that it is important to meet with you, they will be reaching out to schedule a conference with you this week. If they don't reach out to you and you are interested in talking with them, please reach out to your child's counselor and they can work with you to set up a time for a meeting.


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

PTA News!

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!


Our next PTA meeting will be next Wednesday, February 2nd from 6:30-7:30 pm. It will be followed by SAC from 7:30-8:30 pm.

Anxiety Support from Ms. Richey

Anxiety is a natural part of our human experience but understanding how it can show up in our children and selves is a necessary tool to appropriately manage and address it, especially in times of stress and challenge. Here are some resources to look at and share with your student to better understand their experience. Check out two articles below that look at the ways stress/anxiety can show up in our children and how to deal with it when it does!
