Happy Friday, Everitt families!
Thank you to all of our Sources of Strength students, 8th grade families, teachers, and staff members who made the 8th grade formal dance tonight such a success. The 8th graders were dressed so nicely and had such a good time. Below are some photos of the event.
8th grade Continuation is coming soon! Our 8th graders and their families will celebrate Continuation on Tuesday, May 24th from 6:30-7:30 pm. Continuation will be at Everitt in the courtyard so you might want to bring blankets or lawn chairs to sit on to enjoy the ceremony. After the ceremony, we will have cake and lemonade for our amazing 8th graders and their families. On May 25th, school is optional for 8th graders. They are welcome to come but do not have to as their work will all be finished on the 24th.
Our music students have had quite a week! Band and orchestra had a wonderful concert last night and our band, orchestra, and choir students celebrated their hard work this year by going to Elitchs today. They came back happy, tired, and just a little bit sunburned. Thank you to Ms. Reardon, Ms. Letendre, and Mr. Snyder for an amazing year of music. It was such a joy to have music floating through our hallways again this year!
This week was also Battle of the Books and it was an epic battle in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Congratulations to all of our Battle of the Books teams! We hope to have even more parent and student teams next year.
Our last day of school is May 25th and we will have an early dismissal at 12:00. Students will participate in a kickball tournament with their crew classes, have a grade-level award ceremony, enjoy a delicious hot dog lunch, and have time to sign yearbooks with their classmates in each class. A schedule of the last day will be in the next newsletter.
Thank you for supporting and believing in your neighborhood school. It is our privilege to partner with you!

Please review this schedule with your student at your earliest convenience. If you notice any errors, such as a missing science class, please reach out to your student's school counselor ASAP. If your student would like to request a change to an elective class, they will need to complete an Elective Change Request form located on the Counseling page of the Everitt website before May 25th.
