Dear Everitt Families
I hope you all are staying warm and cozy on this beautiful snowy day. We sure do miss seeing students in our hallways, but I love the sounds of our teachers and students collaborating and learning together in Zoom. It is absolutely not the same, but our community is resilient and finds ways to stay connected.
Please encourage your students to take advantage of the opportunities our counselors have set up for them to just informally "hang out" together in Zoom. Middle school students are in a critical time developmentally, and they crave and need relationships and interaction with one another.
As always, thank you for believing in the power of neighborhood schools to bring our communities together, and thank you for sharing your kids with us; it is our honor to serve them.
Jeena Templeton, Principal

Counselors' Corner- TIME OUT!
In an effort to give all of our students (REMOTE and HYBRID) an opportunity to take a break during their school day and just “hang-out” with friends and peers, we’re starting something new called TIME OUT! We know the kids miss talking to one another. Although it’ll be a get-together on ZOOM and not in person, we still look forward to giving kids a chance to connect. Our goal is to create a social ZOOM space for kids to meet-up with old friends and meet new ones.
- Monday from 10:51-11:21 a.m., 6th Grade only.
- Tuesday will be for 7th graders, and we’ll meet at the same time 10:51-11:21 a.m.
- Wednesday is 8th Grade only; same time to meet 10:51-11:21 a.m.
The following flyer will also be posted in 2nd Period Google Classrooms. Let’s get the word out! Time for all of us to do a little “hanging out”!
