A Message from the Principal
Friday Family Newsletter
What a beautiful first full week of fall! And the return of the Home Tour solidifies that we are back to normal. I would like to personally thank the Spirit of 67 and all the amazing families that worked so hard to support this endeavor in honor of our students. Thank you for all you do! Enjoy this beautiful weekend ahead!
Ask your child about Stop Think Plan (STP). We have been working with students to help with problem solving when they are in the middle of a conflict. We encourage you practice it at home. Ask your child if they've used it yet?
STOP--take a moment to pause if you are getting frustrated
THINK--think about staying calm, what you want and what the other person might want
PLAN--think of a possible solution and talk about it
Dress warmly as the temperature starts to cool down.
Congratulations to our newly elected Student Leadership Team representatives!
We will be having our first meeting this Wednesday morning at 7:15am in the library to elect our president. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements from this powerhouse team.
Champions Afterschool Program
Champions offers afterschool care at Everett during the school year - and has options for care during spring, summer, and winter break. No matter the time of year, Champions is there for your family.
Visit their website www.DiscoverChampions.com to enroll your child and secure a spot for the 2022/2023 school year.
New Procedure for Parents/Guardians of Students Who Need to Ride a Different Bus
If your child plans to ride on a bus other than the one to which they are assigned (for example, riding home with a friend), parents and guardians are now required to notify your school office no later than 11:00 AM that day. If the office does not receive notification, the student will not be allowed to change buses. This update is being made for purposes of safety, security, and efficiency. Please contact your principal with questions. Thank you!
Individual assessment reports will be mailed to parents/guardians next week for the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) and fall FastBridge screening. IAR scores are from Spring 2022. FastBridge scores are from Fall 2022. Students in 7th grade will receive an ISA report from the 2021 school year. More information about each assessment is provided in this summary.
Deerpath Road Resurfacing
In conjunction with the IDOT pump station project, a section of Deerpath Road will be resurfaced between Westmoreland Road and 255 W. Deerpath Road (the Lake Forest Public Safety Building), beginning the week of October 10. Resurfacing should be complete by the end of October, weather permitting. Traffic impacts and delays are anticipated during the resurfacing.
Sidewalk and Road Closures
ComEd continues work on replacing the bridge that runs parallel to Route 41 along Deerpath Road. To limit traffic impacts, the contractor has been instructed to avoid lane closures on weekdays during peak commute hours (i.e., 7-8 am, 3-4 pm).
For safety reasons, the north and south sidewalks in the area will be closed beginning Monday, October 3, and will remain closed until the new bridge is completed, likely sometime in early November. Deer Path Middle School students who use those thoroughfares to walk or bike to school will need to make alternate transportation arrangements during this time.
Deerpath Road will be completely closed from Ahwahnee Lane to Route 41 from the evening of Friday, November 4 through the morning of Monday, November 7 while ComEd’s contractor installs the bridge deck beams.

School Districts 65, 67, and 115 will co-host the second annual Great Full Market with Beacon Place and Quest Food Management Services on Sunday, October 16, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Great Full Market is a free farmers market and family festival for residents of Waukegan. The event will take place on the grounds of Beacon Place located at 603 S. McAlister Ave. in Waukegan.
The Great Full Market, hosted this year on World Food Day, provides members of the Waukegan community the opportunity to pick up fresh produce, dry goods such as beans and rice, and other pantry items, all at no cost. Families can also enjoy hot chocolate, churros, and activities including soccer, Lotería, face painting, and crafts led by Lake Forest and Lake Bluff students.
Donate to the Great Full Market
If you would like to make a monetary donation to the Great Full Market, please visit our website.
Volunteer for the Great Full Market
The Great FULL Market on Sunday, October 16 provides a farmer's market setting where families can select their own foods that align to their needs and preferences. We are looking for adult volunteers to set up and assist families during the market, and students who are excited about playing soccer, handing out hot chocolate, assisting with the market activities, and facilitating Loteria with kids while their parents shop. We expect there to be about 200 families present with about 500 individuals being served on that day.
