Evergreen Elementary School
All of us at Evergreen Elementary want to make this a successful year for your child. Your active support and cooperation, combined with our best professional effort, will ensure academic success for your child.
The goal of our school is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum appropriate to his/her academic level. We believe every child can achieve academic success. To this end, every child will be provided with quality instructional experiences that recognize, support and maintain high expectations for all students.
With parents and teachers working together as a team, towards the same goal, every child will succeed. In order to give each child the best opportunity for success, we keep children first in all that we do. If we accept and make real the pledge to keep children first, then it follows that education is our #1 priority. A school-community with those two concepts as our core value and our common cause will stand ready, willing and able to do what is needed for educating the children.
There is an old African proverb that says, “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” While we no longer live in villages, this proverb still holds true. Educating our children requires that we all work together, not for our single issues, but for our greater good, which is represented by our children. Children are our future. Our collective survival depends on how well we nurture, love and care for them.
The staff of Evergreen Elementary looks forward to the opportunity to work with you as partners in education.
