Parent Teacher Conferences are Coming
Parent/Teacher Conferences will be Wednesday, October 12th and Thursday, October 13th from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. We are using the online scheduling system to arrange conferences. Sign-up begins at 8 a.m. on Thursday, September 15th and will close at 3 p.m. on Friday, October 7th. 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).
If you need help with the online system or you do not have internet access, please contact our Guidance Office at 557-4694.
Author to Visit Evans
On Wednesday, November 16th, author Joelle Charbonneau will be visiting EJHS! In advance of her visit, students will read/listen to read aloud of her book The Testing and participate in related activities. For additional information click here.

Citizens Advisory Council
The district is going to see some exciting changes with CAC this year. The group will no longer be preparing research projects for the Board and instead will become a focus group to gather feedback about the District. The CAC will meet 6 times this school year and there will be no outside work required. The district is hopeful this change will help encourage participation. If you believe that you'd be interested in representing EJHS on this council, please contact Mr. Chapman via email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Going to a High School Football Game?
Our high schools love to have support from Evans students! Just remember that Junior high students attending high school football games must be accompanied by an adult. You may not bring footballs, baseballs or Frisbees into the game. Junior high students are required to be respectful and not loiter after the game.
