Dear Everitt Families:
Thank you, PTA, for the wonderful waffle breakfast for staff this week! Our staff felt cared for and we were so touched by your kindness.
February is notorious in education for being a challenging month. It's cold and dreary and winter feels like it is dragging on. Our students, families and staff are finding ways to bring some joy and light to February. Our band and orchestra, in conjunction with Wheat Ridge High School's band and orchestra, played beautiful music on Thursday night. Our Sea Camp students are selling delicious pretzels to help fund their trip. There was an art sculpture competition in art class where students created 3D sculptures of "old school" objects. Our 7th graders bravely presented about businesses they have been studying. Our 8th graders crashed eggs -- see the video below. And our new sign is now literally lighting up!
We have lots of fun coming up as well! Our band, orchestra, choir and theatre students will be going to see the Wheat Ridge High School musical, 8th grade has a movie night on March 10th, 6th grade has a glow-in-the-dark dance on March 11th, and we have a spirit week coming up, too. We have much to look forward to and much to be thankful for.
Thank you for supporting and believing in your neighborhood school. It is our privilege to partner with you!
Amanda Pouliot, Principal

Lunch Bunch and Thursday Morning Volunteers:
Want to lend a hand at the school? Sign up to spend some time socializing with the students during lunch and recess or on Thursday mornings before late start. Thank you in advance for donating your time and making our community stronger!
Lunches are broken up into 3 sections. With some exceptions, they are generally 6th graders 1st, 7th graders 2nd and 8th graders 3rd. Each lunch is 30 minutes. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays they run one after another, on the block days of Wednesday and Thursday there is a 10-15 minute gap between lunch sections. If you want to come for just one or 2 sections that is no problem, but you are also welcome to stay the entire lunch time!
When you arrive go to the main office to sign-in and fill out volunteer paperwork (the first time only) and then head to the cafeteria or library. You can bring an activity (like a football, 4 square ball etc) or just join in with what's going on!
