Dear Everitt Families:
This cool air is sure a pleasure after the heat of the rest of the week!
I was able to spend time in many classrooms this week and it was a pleasure to listen to the insights and questions that our students shared with their teachers and each other. Curiosity is alive and well at Everitt!
We had our first PTA and SAC meetings of the year this week, as well. It was amazing to spend some time Wednesday evening with our wonderful families. At PTA, we learned that Ms. Adducci's career prior to teaching included creating shows for the Food Network, that our PTA secretary, Kristine Saperstein, has gone bungee jumping, which musical theatre role I've played three times, about President Dan Weinstein's lego collection, and that our volunteer coordinator, Leslie Weinstein, had her bachelorette party at Casa Bonita. Join us next time for more fun! There are lots of ways to get involved and meet new families through our PTA!
Next week, 6th grade families will have an opportunity to learn more about Outdoor Lab and to receive the paperwork that we will need for each student who attends. Outdoor Lab is truly a highlight of students' 6th grade year and of their time in Jeffco. High school students often state that Outdoor Lab is one of their favorite childhood experiences. See you Tuesday night, 6th grade families!
This is the first week that we are sending out emails to families if your child has a D or an F in any classes. This is a perfect time to get in the habit of checking grades with your children and helping them develop a habit to check their own grades. I recommend checking grades with your child at least once per week and choosing a specific day of the week to do so. You can login to check grades through your parent account or you can have your child login through their account. At our house, I have our children login through their accounts so that they get used to going in and checking themselves. Then we talk through what we see in their grades and they make a plan for how they will address missing assignments (if they have any) or assignments that they would like to re-do to improve their grades.
Thank you for supporting and believing in your neighborhood school. It is our privilege to partner with you!
Amanda Pouliot, Principal

SHOTS FOR TOTS AND TEENS
PICK UP AND DROP OFF
1. Carpool -- Fewer vehicles in our parking lot means a shorter line.
2. Pull all the way forward in the drop off/pick up lane.
3. Pick your child up at the Recreation Center and have them use the tunnel to cross under Kipling.
4. Drop off a little earlier and pick up a little later - We are on supervision duty at 7:00 am and the line is very short at that time. It is also short after 2:40 pm.
5. Once the buses have left in the afternoon, please feel free to turn right at the base of the parking lot and exit in front of the north side of the building. It will help you avoid having to turn right or left onto Kipling.
6. Please be very careful and aware of our students who are crossing the streets as you exit. We have many children who have to cross to get to the path to the Rec Center.
Thank you to everyone who attended in person and online for our first PTA meeting, it was a great crowd and a lot of exciting conversations were had. Please keep an eye out on our FaceBook site and on the PTA website (https://everitt.jeffcopublicschools.org/family_resources/p_t_a) for the meeting minutes to be posted shortly.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday October 5th at 6:30pm, please mark your calendars. We will be coordinating sending some snacks to our articulation area elementary schools who are proposed to be closed next school year to support the amazing staff over there and looking at additional ways to continue to support our great community.

Middle School Sports Program
In an effort to continue moving forward with volleyball registration, a paper registration form has been created. This form needs to be filled out in its entirety and emailed back to me at email@example.com. Priority enrollment will be determined by date and time form/email was sent. Once capacity has been met no additional registrations will be accepted. The registration form can be digitally filled in. Please verify all information is correct before submitting. All program information will be sent out via email.
If you already registered for volleyball (before the crash), please send me a copy of your registration/receipt. I currently have no way of accessing these records and therefore cannot communicate to those already registered.
This form is for Volleyball registration only. Registration for Basketball, Track & Field, and Soccer will be available (hopefully) online starting December 12th.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions and to share this with anyone who is interested in registering for Volleyball. Here is the link for paper registration: MSSP Registration Form.pdf
