Dear Everitt Families:

This was a fun week at Everitt as we had (and will have this evening) many opportunities to celebrate the wonderful things that make Everitt special.

On Wednesday, we had our first grade-level academic celebration where we celebrated our 8th graders who had As, Bs, and Cs first quarter with a donut party in the cafeteria. We, like you, are proud of how students worked in their classes first quarter and look forward to celebrating our 6th and 7th graders, too!

On Wednesday evening, we had our second Te y Cafe con la Directora where we learned about Love and Logic parenting from our wonderful Shaun Richey. Te y Cafe is an opportunity to get to know other parents and learn more about what is going on at Everitt. We have interpreters for several languages at the event and would welcome anyone to join us!

Last night, we had our first music concerts of the year. Our band, orchestra, choir, and ukulele students performed music for a packed auditorium. It was amazing to hear them play and sing. Thank you to our partners at Wheat Ridge High School, our former students, our teachers Ms. Reardon, Ms. Letendre, and Ms. Adducci, and our parents for all you did to prepare for last night's concerts.

Tonight, we have our Fall Festival! This is a family event and you are welcome to invite friends and neighbors as well. Students are welcome to attend with their family or another student's family. Costumes are welcome and encouraged. Please avoid costumes that are too scary as we have many young children at the event. See you at Everitt from 4-6 pm!

Speaking of Halloween costumes, students are welcome to wear Halloween costumes on Monday. Masks, blood/gore, and weapons of any kind are not allowed. Please follow the dress code.

Below, you will find a link to a parent survey. Thank you to those of you who have already responded. If you haven't yet responded, we would very much appreciate your feedback. The survey will be in the newsletter once per month and is aligned with areas in which we hope to grow this year. Thank you for providing your honest feedback so that we can grow! I will share the survey data next week.

It is already time to think about next year! 8th grade parents, there are flyers later in the newsletter about upcoming information nights at some of the high schools. We will also be holding an information night at Everitt on Monday, December 5th for families who would like to learn more about Everitt. I will also be giving tours to families every Wednesday at 1:00 pm. If that time does not work for families, I am happy to schedule another time. Please let your friends and neighbors know about the tours and the information night.

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


Amanda Pouliot, Principal

I wish more students were like Israel.

Hank R. - As a class we lost a tool 3 days prior. Hank never gave up looking for it and finally found it and turned it in. Hank shared his creativity during speech/mental health session with two peers. He shared his imagination as he was creating a story with his classmates and helped his peers use their imagination while staying on topic. He is a pleasure to have in class!

Casey S. - Casey has taken a risk in joining my Honor's class, and although she was nervous, she has really stepped up!

Hannah C. - Hannah has gone above and beyond in helping out in the library while we are short a Teacher's Assistant. She has been so gracious in giving up her time each day to run the front desk and help her school community.
