Dear Everitt Families:

This week, we had an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful work our 6th and 8th graders did first semester. We are so proud of how hard they worked and all that they learned! Below, there is a list of the 6th graders who made the honor roll and had zero tardies first semester. There is also a slideshow about all of the 8th graders that we celebrated.

I know that drop-off traffic has been particularly challenging lately. We often see an increase in students being driven to school when it is cold or snowy. That combined with the continuing icy conditions has proven challenging for drop-off. On cold mornings or when it is precipitating, all students are welcome to go into the cafeteria as soon as they arrive on campus. On days when the traffic continues past our start time, we hold tardies until we get the students in the building. You can help us by pulling all of the way forward when dropping your child off. I understand the desire to drop your child off as close to the entrance as possible. However, when many cars stop at the top of the parking lot, it makes it very difficult to get all of the cars through in a timely manner. Thanks for your support in making our parking lot run more smoothly.

We are looking for a few parents and guardians who would like to participate in a special task force. In this group, we will take a deeper look at Everitt's restorative practices and discipline policies, look at data for root causes, examine our practices for cultural responsiveness and equity, and develop a plan that we believe will honor our students and prepare them to meaningfully contribute to the world around them. We will meet every other Thursday afternoon from 2:45-3:45 pm. If you are interested in participating, please reach out to me as soon as possible.

Soup's On! We'd love to have you join us for the PTA Soup's On! event. Please make a crockpot full of something delicious to share and join us for a fun evening of games and getting to know your fellow Lab families. This is a family event so students may not be dropped off to participate.

Thanks to all of you who filled out the family survey last week. If you haven't yet filled it out, please do so. The survey helps us to know what we are doing well and how we can better serve you and your family. We value your feedback.

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


Amanda Pouliot, Principal

Everitt Middle School
