    This past spring, Illinois students participated in a new state assessment, called the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exam, in English language arts and math.  The PARCC assessment replaces other standardized tests and marks a significant change from these previous assessments.  The test lines up with the updated Illinois Learning Standards and measures students' problem-solving abilities, criticial thinking, and writing skills, which are abilities all students need to stay on track for college and careeer readiness after high school.  For more information on PARCCclick here.

  • 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

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!
