Dear Everitt Families,
I'm writing this as Sources of Strength students scurry around the building getting ready for our 7th grade dance and game night. They continue to be exceptional leaders this year. They serve their school with energy and passion. We will all have so much fun and only a few of us will receive a pie to the face!
Next week, we will work on completing CMAS testing. Our 8th graders have one more session of CMAS science and some of our students will complete make-up tests. Thank you for all you've done to ensure that your children have enough sleep to do their best on the tests. We are proud of our Everitt students!
Next week, we have another staff work day on April 22nd. There is no school for students so that teachers and staff members can have some time to prepare amazing learning experiences.
We also have a 7th grade field trip next Tuesday. Our 7th graders are going to the Museum of Nature and Science to dive deeper into understanding human body systems and the history of the Earth. Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered both for our 7th grade dance and for our field trip next week. Middle schoolers are the very best and I'm sure you will have a wonderful time!
Thank you for supporting and believing in your neighborhood school. It is our privilege to partner with you!

Jackson D. - After school Jackson brought in some recess equipment that was left outside from lunch today. Thank you Jackson!
Romelo B. - Wow, Romelo! What a huge shift from the beginning of the year! Our class has seen you share your incredible thinking, respect and honor our time and classroom, and build community in our groups. Thank you for continuing to make yourself better because in turn, it makes our classroom a better place to be!
Kiley K. - When choosing books for our Resilience Novel Project, Kiley was insistent upon choosing the honors level novel Copper Sun. She not only successfully read the book cover to cover, she has completed all the assignments at a high level. Her interest and understanding of the novel is demonstrated through her continual questioning and genuine curiosity about the novel and the historical context associated with slavery. Awesomesauce!
Katie T. - Thank you for helping run passes for students.
Marcus J. - Marcus volunteered to help other students during class. He did a great job giving just enough help without giving the answers, so that his peers learned how to do the work. Marcus, you're a great support for your peers!
Lindsey R. - Lindsey is a hard worker and always does her best.
Julyana S. - Julie is a hard worker. She continues to try her best, complete work, and participate in class. Julie is an awesome student.
Romelo B. - Romelo has been working hard over the past couple weeks to set a positive example in class. He is participating in class, completing his work, and setting a great example when other classmates need reminders of the expectations.
Caden R. - Caden will be competing in the Men's Gymnastics National Championships in May after being successful in his state and regional meets. Good luck, Caden! We're rooting for you!
Bryson D. - Bryson has demonstrated positive academic success in ELA during the second semester.
Christian S. - I have noticed a positive shift in Christian during his speech class! I am super proud of you!
Finn W. - Finn demonstrates grit and resiliency in everything he does. He has a fantastic work ethic and puts his best effort into every task he completes. He is an example of what it looks like to push beyond average effort and accomplishments. He strives to be the very best version of himself each and every day.
Montravius W. - Montravius chose to read Copper Sun, a book he most likely would not have chosen for himself. He worked really hard to keep up with the rigor of the work and reading at a fast pace. He is working hard to complete the assignments and is working his way to complete reading the whole book.
Jaylen B. - Jaylen was thrown into reading Copper Sun, a book he most likely would not have chosen for himself. He worked really hard to keep up with the rigor of reading at a fast pace. He decided to get a copy of his own book to work hard on this work. He is working hard to complete the assignments and is working his way to complete reading the whole book. Jaylen told me, "This is the most I've ever been invested in a book!".
Ignacio A. - Nachito was thrown into reading Copper Sun, a book he most likely would not have chosen for himself. He worked really hard to keep up with the rigor of reading at a fast pace.
Dustin B. - Dustin was thrown into reading Copper Sun, a book he most likely would not have chosen for himself. He worked really hard to keep up with the rigor of moving and reading at a fast pace. He decided to get a copy of his own book to work hard on this work. He is working hard to complete the assignments and is working his way to complete reading the whole book.
Jeffrey G. - Jeffrey is a great work partner and willing to try any problem, regardless of how challenging.
Rome C. - Rome stepped up and took chances this week in class and group to become a great leader.
Indy E. - Indy is persistent in his pursuit of academic excellence. Fabulous.
Van T. - Van completed his assignments during Crew and was a self advocate, asking questions and being on top of his work.
Noah R. - Noah chose to read Copper Sun and worked on the same assignments as the GT and Honors students. Noah read and completed their work independently, as they were the only student in their class period to complete all work with fidelity. I am proud that Noah took on this challenge and the work that was submitted was done well.
Layla G. - Layla had a presentation for Mrs. Galvez-Estevez's class and she believed in herself and did a great job presenting.
Lucia R. - Lucia consistently works to her best and encourages others to do the same academically. Awesome!
Kieren C. - Leads with her voice in choir, always has great weird things to say, is exceedingly kind and generous.
Nic D. - Nic is not afraid to include others in activities in PE and is always very welcoming to all of his classmates. He displays an infectious amount of positivity both in the gym for class, as well as, any time I see him in the hallway. A smile or a handshake goes a long way and Nic makes sure to make everyone he sees feel welcome and valued!
Neylah P. - Neylah is the only student in her class period reading Copper Sun. This book involves high level thinking and work completion. As the only student she has to do it all independently. There are no other students for her to bounce ideas off and so on. Neylah has met the expectations of the book study and then some. I'm proud of the way she has persevered and produced high level work in a unique situation.
Maya W. - As we were discussing adaptations, Maya asked a question about a species having multiple adaptations for survival, which helped other students understand they were not limited to one adaptation for their species.
Ian B. - Ian made a choice to work hard and with enthusiasm in class. He demonstrated his ability to complete math problems that challenged him and met that challenge with a positive attitude.
Gavyn B. - Gavyn puts forth his best effort every single day. He pushes through difficult work and never gives up.
