  • 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.

  • 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 - chapmant@myunit5.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.

  • Connection Cards

     
    This quarter, we are promoting ”Connection Cards.”  These simple notes are available to our entire student body in the Pods and outside of our front office.  Students are welcome to take one (or many) “Connection Cards” during the first quarter, and fill a card out for any adult in our building.  The card can be a note of appreciation, gratitude, encouragement, or a simple act kindness.  Students are then to deliver the note to the adult.
     
    The staff of Eagle Nation have “Connection Cards” available for students, too!  They will also be handing out notes to the student body during the first quarter.
     
    For more information about this initiative, please watch this short video: https://youtu.be/Q8LBp3SaJAc
     
    School is all about connections, and those connections are dictated directly by the impact we have with one another.  We sincerely hope this simple act, promoted all first quarter, will help all of Eagle Nation understand the impact – both big and small - they have every day on the other individuals in the building!
