Dear Everitt Families:
I cannot believe we are almost through February!
As we head into March next week, we are preparing to show what we know on the CMAS assessments. All year, our students and teachers have been working hard in all of their classes. We are so excited for our students to have an opportunity to demonstrate all that they've learned this year. The CMAS is one of Everitt's chances to show the community what we're about and what our kids can do!
Speaking of Everitt kids doing great things, congratulations to 8th grader Delilah Zepeda-Orth for qualifying as a junior elite gymnast! Delilah scored 46.700 at a qualifying meet in Texas making her one of 22 13-14 year old girls to qualify so far this year. You're amazing, Delilah!
Next week, our music and theatre students have an opportunity to go see the musical at Wheat Ridge High School. Tickets are on sale now through the high school if you'd like to take your family to see the show, too.
We also have International Night coming up on March 9th! Invite your neighbors to join us for a wonderful evening celebrating the beautiful cultures represented in the Wheat Ridge area. There will be food, performances, and lots of fun!
Our counselors will be reaching out to incoming 6th graders next week to select their electives. Our current 6th and 7th graders will be receiving information about signing up for electives in the next few weeks as well.
Thank you for supporting and believing in your neighborhood school. It is our privilege to partner with you!
Amanda Pouliot, Principal
Everitt Middle School

We are a few weeks away from our wonderful community event "International Night: A Community Celebration" on March 9th from 5:00-7:30 pm.
We will be collaborating with our area elementary schools, community members, staff and everyone involved to share our amazing community story. There will be live performances, students and families representing their stories, food from our local international restaurants and resources from our service organizations. If you are interested in in participating in any way (volunteer, host a booth, perform, etc.) please reach out to:

Thank you, I hope to see you there to celebrate our amazing community.
PTA (PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION) CORNER:
Our focus is on building lasting connections between families, getting to know our student’s teachers, and creating opportunities to come together as a community, valuing our diversity and celebrating our differences.
On Thursday March 9th from 5:00pm - 7:30pm we have International Night. This year it will expand to be a celebration of the diversity in our Everitt and Wheat Ridge communities!
