  • 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!
