  • Heart of the Eagles 5K - 2015
    It is school, community, and parents that allow our Evans Eagles to soar to new heights! This is why our school's theme for the 2015-2016 school year is "We are Eagles Nation". Through this theme we will continue to create opportunities and experiences that support our students as they grow into the important members of our community that they are.  One way we can do this is through our 2nd Annual Heart of the Eagles 5K that will take place Saturday, October 24.  If you are interested in running or volunteering, click here for more inforamtion.

    Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Friday, October 23rd from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. We are using the online scheduling system to arrange conferences.

    • Sign-up begins at 8 a.m. on Thursday, September 24th and will close at 3 p.m. on Thursday, October 22nd. Please click on the link below to schedule a conference. You will need to know your student’s team (6A, 7a, etc.) for scheduling purposes.


    • Counselors, Exploratory, Music and PE teachers will also have conference time slots available on this date.

    Teams hold different types of conferences and they will send home notices with students indicating whether you would sign up for an individual or group conference time slot. If you do not receive information from your student’s team, you may sign up for the time that works best for you. Contact a teacher on your student’s team for specific questions or concerns about conferences.

    Parents – if you do not receive a follow-up email within an hour of registering your student’s name, your name and your email address, we suggest you check your spam filter to see if it has put the email in a folder (typically called JUNK or SPAM).

  • 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

  • IMPORTANT: Bring your Own Device (BYOD) Information  

    In preparation for the "Bring Your Own Device" technology option for the 2015-2016 school year, the district has announced that they would like to pilot this option beginning after spring break of this school year.  Please see this letter (PDF) from the district that explains the pilot option!
    As the district plans for 6th - 12th grade implementation of BYOD, they need to gather information as to whether or not families intend on sending their child to school with a machine of their own, or renting one from the district for $100.  Therefore, please look for a letter that your child should have brought home from school last Friday that will ask parents/guardians to sign and return if you wish to have the district provide a device for your student to rent next year.  Your student can bring that form in to the main office to drop it off if you choose to sign the form for this option.  As the letter will indicate, we are looking to have those forms returned prior to spring break.  Remember, parents are only signing the form and returning it to school if they are interested in renting a device for $100 from the district - similar to what families did this year.  If no letter is received, then no device will be purchased by the district for you to rent for next school year.    An extra copy of this form is located HERE.

    Sixth grade students put their knowledge of forces and motion to the test in Egg Car Races 2015.  Designs had to survive traveling down a ramp and crashing into a brick wall, all the while protecting the raw egg it was carrying. Engineering was put to the test as they designed, tested, and rebuilt before the big race day!
