  • Change in Grading Process 

    Due to changes in state reporting requirements, we are now reporting cumulative semester grades at the middle school level. Students will still receive quarter grades but their final, cumulative grade will be reported as a semester grade and will represent a running total of points accumulated first and second quarter.  This is aligned with the practices at the high schools.  Additionally, athletic eligibility and transfer grades are cumulative in nature so the change in our grading practice aligns with those reporting requirements as well. 

    Since grades are cumulative for the semester, we will no longer have an honor roll for each quarter of the school year like we have done in the past.  Rather, we will have a Semester 1 honor roll and a Semester 2 honor roll.

  • Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming!

    Parent/Teacher Conferences will be Friday, October 24th from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. We are using the online scheduling system to arrange conferences.  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.

    Click here for conference sign up.

  • 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.

Curriculum Spotlight

  • Image from the cemetary walk

    Team 8A went on the Discovery Walk at the Evergreen Cemetery on October 7th.  They were celebrating the 20th anniversary of this program. The discovery walk is when actors take the students back in time to meet some important historical figures that have lived and influenced McLean County.  Since it was the 20th anniversary, the walk had the best characters from their past 20 years.  The students and teachers on 8A learned a lot about the history of McLean County.
