Tonight is Back to School Night Part 1!  We wanted to remind you that our evening starts at 7:00 PM and goes to 8:30 right here at Everest. The focus of our evening will be forming a strong family community and giving you the opportunity to build a relationship with your mentor.

To remind you, we have different agendas for our new and returning families because, just like our students, different families have different needs.

NEW FAMILIES
  • 7:00 - 7:10 Arrive and get settled
  • 7:10 - 7:40 Learn about the role of the Everest parent from the school directors
  • 7:40 - 8:00 Preview the 2016-2017 school year with all families
  • 8:00 - 8:30 Meet your child's mentor and the families of the rest of the group
RETURNING FAMILIES
  • 7:00 - 7:10 Arrive and get settled
  • 7:10 - 7:40 Meet with your child's mentor and the families of the rest of the group
  • 7:40 - 8:00 Preview the 2016-2017 school year with all families
  • 8:00 - 8:30 OPTIONAL Question and Answer with the director or your child's mentor
We are also sharing a schedule with you so that you know where you will be at each point of the evening. The schedule is organized by your student's last name followed by the timings and locations you are expected to be in.

Best Fit College Night - Thursday, April 21 6:30-8pm at Everest

posted Apr 19, 2016, 1:06 PM by Linda Burt

On April 21st from 6:30 - 8:00 PM at Everest, we will be holding the last evening college event of the year.  One of our highlighted areas of growth in our parent survey this year was to better support parents in knowing how to prepare themselves and their student for the college application process. For this reason, the College Readiness team has put together an evening with autonomous breakout sessions meant to share important and relevant information on high priority topics: “College Support for First Generation/Undocumented Students,” “Paying for College,” “Supporting Students With Special Needs,” “Naviance 101,” Creating a Best Fit College List,” and how to target “Highly Selective Schools.”  We will also have a 12th grade student and mentor panel this evening to answer your most pressing questions and to provide anecdotal support for how to best strategize during the college admissions process.

This event is strongly recommended for all 10th and 11th grade families, but all grades are welcome to attend. 

We hope to see you there!

Back to School Night - Part 2

posted Sep 7, 2015, 1:56 PM by Linda Burt

Please join us this Thursday night, September 10th, 7-8:30pm at Everest for Back to School Night Part 2. During Back to School Night Part 2,  parents will walk away with several key experiences:

  • An opportunity to mimic the student experience so that they leave with a strong understanding of a day in the life of their student.

  • Basic training in the PLP tool and learn how to follow and support their student’s progress towards the completion of their content assessments, projects, and personal academic plans and goals.   

  • A chance to meet grade level teachers to ask grade specific questions and initiate sustained communication over the course of the year.

  • Meeting other parents to help grow our school community.

Lots of Volunteer Opportunities!
