Maynard Evans High School Community Brief
Wednesday, May 22, 2024
Evans Community Member,

It's a sad goodbye as the 2023-2024 school year comes to an end at Evans High School. This year has been full of amazing moments and accomplishments, and it all came together in a senior sendoff that everyone will remember forever. The seniors' sendoff was a bittersweet time for the graduating class as they said goodbye to teachers, underclassmen and other seniors. It gave them a chance to think about the friends and memories they made at Evans High School. This event was a perfect tribute to the seniors' hard work and dedication, and it also served as a reminder of how close everyone at school has become. When the graduating class walks across the stage at the Addition Financial Arena at UCF on May 30 at 7:30 PM, they will be looking forward to the next part of their lives. They can be proud of what they've done and look forward to the exciting things that are still to come. 

As the school year is ending, students and teachers should take some time to unwind and have fun before getting ready for another year of hard work in August. All of our stakeholders have been very helpful this year, and we appreciate all of their support. As we say goodbye to another school year, let's remember the good times and look forward to the great times that are yet to come. 

Thank you to everyone for making this year amazing. Enjoy the summer and take it easy before we get back together to keep working hard to be the best at Evans High School.

Mrs. Nelson-Warren

Class of 2024 Graduation Ceremony
Class of 2024 Sendoff
Wednesday, May 13, was the senior sendoff. It was a melancholy and memorable event for everyone in attendance. As the seniors walked into the gym for their last pep rally of the year, the senior class, SGA, band drum-line, and cheerleading squad were ready to meet them with energy. 

As our seniors walked down the path of the 300 building for the last time, they were feeling a mix of excitement and fear about what was to come next in their lives. Juniors were encouraged to join in to show their love and support for the seniors. Seniors said goodbye to teachers, administrators, and peers as they walked down the hallway of the 300 building for the last time. They thought about the memories they had made and the friends they had made during their time at school. It was a time to think, be thankful, and look forward to the future with hope and excitement. 

The senior sendoff was a fitting way to honor the graduating class. It was a chance to celebrate their hard work and wish them luck on their next journey in life. It made them think of the friendships they made in high school and how, even though they are going on new adventures, they will always be a part of a special group.
Senior Academic Awards Night
The Evans High School Performing Arts Center was filled with enthusiasm and a sense of accomplishment as students assembled for the senior academic award ceremony. The occasion, which honored the tireless efforts and commitment of the graduating seniors, was an evening brimming with happiness, optimism, and recognition. Students from many backgrounds were recognized for their accomplishments, receiving numerous awards to support their academic pursuits and future aspirations. 

The atmosphere was highly charged as parents and community members enthusiastically applauded the winners, acknowledging their exceptional achievements. The event emphasized the accomplishments of each student, demonstrating the promising prospects that lie ahead as they transition to the next phase of their lives. The honorees demonstrated a comprehensive range of skills and achievements, both in academics and extracurricular activities, which would undoubtedly benefit them in their future pursuits. 

The senior academic award presentation was a memorable event that honored the accomplishments of the graduating class and provided them with deserved acknowledgment and encouragement as they go on their journey into the world. The students' hard work and determination, together with the constant support of the Evans High School community, were evident and commendable.
International Baccalaureate Senior Night
Elevate Scholarship Ceremony
The Elevate Scholarship Ceremony Night, hosted at the Citrus Club in downtown Orlando, was a night to remember for the seniors of Evans High School, Jones High School, and Oak Ridge High School. The event filled with excitement and pride as students walked away with multiple scholarship opportunities.

Seniors like Joy Molina, and Kimberly St. Jean were among the recipients of these prestigious scholarships, showcasing their dedication and hard work throughout their high school years. The atmosphere was beautiful and celebratory, with students, parents, and educators coming together to honor the achievements of these talented individuals.

The Elevate Scholarship Ceremony Night was a testament to the commitment and talent of the students in our community, highlighting the importance of supporting and investing in their future. Congratulations to all the scholarship recipients and best wishes for a successful and bright future ahead!

The dance department and Ms. Baez finished the year on a high note with the spring dance showcase, which everyone who went will remember. The event was not only unique, but also amazing, showing off the dance students' amazing skills. The spring dance showcase really showed how hard students work, how much they love dance, and how skilled they are. There were beautiful ballet acts and lively hip-hop routines. Ms. Baez led and guided the dancers in every show, and you could see it in how she helped them grow and reach their full potential. People were mesmerized by the choreography's creativity and skill, as well as by the dancers' precision and ability to work together. With all the feeling, energy, and cheers, it was a very memorable evening!

For the whole night, cheers and applause filled the room as players were praised for their hard work and dedication in their different sport categories.
