Dear Everitt Families:
I am so proud of our students for taking such good care of each other this week. Masks or mask-free, every student respected the choices of the others around them!
Believe it or not, it is almost time for students to select their elective classes for next year! Be watching in the newsletter for information coming out in the next few weeks about elective options and the class selection process. I am very excited about some of the new elective options that our teachers will be offering.
Our mental health team provides amazing support to students on Thursday mornings during our late start time. Students who have all A's, B's, and C's head to the library after a grade check and can spend time playing games, doing puzzles, or chatting with their friends. Students who need some additional support stay in grade-level classrooms and work on missing assignments. Students who arrive at school anytime between 7:21 and 8:15 can join these study halls and receive this extra support from our mental health team. Starting next Thursday, students who arrive after 8:15 am will not be able to join the others in study hall. We will provide supervision outside near our new entrance from 8:15 to 8:50 am for those who arrive late.
Below, I've shared some information about some up-coming events. I hope you all have a wonderful three day weekend!
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 email@example.com or call 720-291-1435 (Dan Weinstein)

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

Middle School Sports Program
Ethan A. - Ethan is always one of the most respectful students both in class and in the hallways. He always asks how everyone is doing and makes sure that people are okay, whether they are part of his group or team or on the other team. Ethan works well with everyone and is not afraid to go out of his comfort zone to include others!
Ronin J. - Ronin extends his social bubble to include all others while in class. He leads his peers by example and lifts them up with positivity and inclusion. Ronin is not afraid to try new things and include new or different people throughout class activities. Ronin also makes sure he advocates for himself and respectfully speaks up when he needs to!
Mitch H. - Mitch was quick to point out during our GMO town hall the connection between GMOs and social studies concepts of supply and demand. This type of thinking in connection of subjects will serve you well in the future. Keep finding the connections!
Israel P. - Israel was quick to point out during our GMO town hall the connection between GMOs and social studies concepts of supply and demand. This type of thinking in connection of subjects will serve you well in the future. Keep finding the connections!
Brody R. - Brody was quick to point out during our GMO town hall the connection between GMOs and social studies concepts of supply and demand. This type of thinking in connection of subjects will serve you well in the future. Keep finding the connections!
Ms. Grice - Ms. Grice is an amazing team player! She steps up to the plate to collaborate and assist our Service-Learning class with creative ideas! We appreciate you!
Mr. Solis - Mr. Solis is always willing to collaborate with our Spanish Department and assist our students with various projects in addition to International Night! We are so fortunate to have you as a connection to the world outside the classroom! We Heart You Mr. Solis!
Ms. Neve - Ms. Neve is always a ray of sunshine and lifts others up. She is wonderful at recognizing others in a positive way.
Erin H. - Erin always brings a great attitude and energy to class. She puts her best effort and thinking into every project, is helpful with everyone who needs it, and puts such a positive and kind vibe out to everyone. I chose "strength" because it takes a certain kind of strength to keep a positive outlook on things especially in middle school where we like to complain--a LOT!
Brayden W. - Brayden includes everyone in group activities and invites them to join teams and groups that he is on. Brayden makes sure that his peers feel included and valued while also challenging them to succeed and do their best in any activity or sport that we are doing.
Caleb S. - In the art room, Caleb has a great attitude about learning, and just jumping in to try whatever project we are doing. He always shares his thinking about the topic in a way that might help others take risks to share ideas and ask questions. If anyone needs help, Caleb will step right up to lend a hand. I think his strength shows up in the way he has a positive attitude and shares it just by being himself.
