We had our annual Owl Run yesterday! Despite the heat, our students and the middle school cross country students who participated gave it their all. This wouldn't have been possible without the help of Howdy's Rent A Toilet, Custom Furniture Installations, Kona Ice of Tallahassee, GWTC, and Scott Hansen and Leon County Schools. Thank you all so very much! Until next year :)


We had a great time at the Owl Run and enjoyed welcoming all of the middle school girls and boys cross country teams! Very proud of our student that ran the entire middle school course with Coach Vicky!

We are in the process of getting our school ready in anticipation of our students returning and with that, we are trying to re-stock our school store, the Owl Mart. The items in the Owl Mart can be bought by students using their Owl Bucks which they receive for following the school rules: be safe, be respectful, be responsible. Students get to shop for what they want and work on skills such as making choices, waiting in line, and counting out money. The store is also run by our transition students who focus on vocational skills such as greeting, counting up the cost of items being bought, taking Owl Bucks and counting out any change, and bagging items that were bought.

Some different things that are sold are clothes (comfortable clothes like t-shirts and elastic shorts/pants), sensory toys, random toys (i.e., cars, people, animals, etc.), bags, hats, art supplies, collegiate gear, toys/games, movies, electronics, books, stuffed animals, and seasonal items. If donating, please do not bring anything fragile or breakable.

Any items to be donated can be dropped off at the front office between the hours of 8:00-5:00. We hope you can help us add to our shop. It is a great motivator for our students!


We are so proud of our Owlmazing Building Maintenance Supervisor, Louise Rhodes! She was recognized by the district for her excellence in her job as the BMS for Everhart. We are so proud of her! Thanks to Tod Stupski and Ryan Peck for helping us recognize Louise for her great work!


A BIG Thank you to our Elk Friends that provided ALL of the students and staff a hamburger lunch as a part of our Fun Days! They are such wonderful partners and friends of Everhart.

We had our annual prom last week! For the past few years, our students have not dressed to the nines but this year we brought fancy back! We couldn't have put this together without the help of the following individuals and organizations: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for the doughnuts that were provided while our students got ready in the "men's den" and at "spa day," Bill Soleau for donating food, Rick Peckham for getting the food, drinks, and music organized, the Tallahassee Elks Lodge #937 for volunteering with music and food prep, UNF Dance Miracle reps (Riley Rowe and Gracie Pittinger) for coming to dance with the students, Mikalya D***s and Lana D***s for volunteering during Spa Day, and Rick Peckham and Denise who made the corsages and boutonnieres for our students to wear. Edited to also add THANK YOU to Joy Delaney for making the awesome volcano!

Thank you all for helping to make this special day even more special!


Everyone is looking forward to our Prom on Friday! We are getting fancy this year! Please make sure High School and Transition students are ready with their attire. Contact your teacher if you have questions. We are fortunate to have the Elks cater a lunch before we start dancing. Parents can come at 2:15 - 2:45. It will be FUN!

Today was such a treat for us. Some of the members of the FSU Marching Chiefs came to play for our students and it was awesome as usual! Many thanks to David Plack for making sure this is an annual experience for our students! Also, many thanks to the members of the Marching Chiefs for taking the time out to come and play for us! And they always leave some time at the end for our students to interact with the instruments which is very exciting for them :)


So proud of our Everhart Volunteers and Partners: Denise Mick-Peckham, Grace Ashoo, and Lisa from Danny B's Towing & Recovery. We also appreciate the support of our School Board Members and District Staff!
