  • Principal for a Day

    On January 26, 2016, Rep. Dan Brady of the 105th district, visited George L. Evans Jr. High School in Bloomington, Illinois.  Rep. Brady served as, “Principal for a Day”, spending the morning with EJHS Principal Trevor Chapman.  Time was spent in two different 7th grade social studies classrooms discussing the process behind passing laws and various other topics related to state level government.  Rep. Brady also toured the building and visited several other classrooms talking with students and staff about many of the various educational activities happening in the building.  This included time in the school cafeteria mingling with students during lunch time. 

    Rep. Brady serves the residents of Normal, portions of East Bloomington and a small portion of Livingston County.  He has been a Republican member of the House of Representatives since 2001.

  • Items Needed - Promise Council

    The Evans Promise Council needs your help for Evans families in need of toiletries and household supplies. Teachers and staff will have access to a resource room to distribute items whenever needed to students in their classrooms.

    Children at Evans may not always have the necessary toiletry items or cleaning supplies to eliminate germs in their homes.  Lack of these basic necessities can lead to increased illnesses and absences. 

    Please sign-up for as many items as you can for drop off at the Evans Jr. High School Office in a container marked Promise Council.  Gift cards from Walmart, Meier, and Target are appreciated as well and can be dropped off at the EJHS Office. 

    As always, the Caring Adults supporting Evans kids are awesome.  Thank you for your help!!  To help please click on the following link: EJHS Families In Need Sign Up

Student Spotlight

Curriculum Spotlight

  • Image of students using the IMC's makerspace

    Wednesday, November 18 was the Grand Opening of the IMC’s Makerspace! Students from Mrs. Springwood’s tutorial class explored electronics with littleBits, built with LEGOs, made loom bracelets, and tuned into their artistic skills. The idea of a makerspace is to give students the materials, freedom, and encouragement to think, create, explore, and grow. Our makerspace was partially funded by a Beyond the Books grant and also features many recyclable materials (egg cartons, paper towel rolls, etc.) and leftover craft supplies.  Way to go Mrs. Glatt for writing the grant and creating the Evans' Makerspace!
