Welcome to Evergreen Avenue Elementary School. We strive to create a caring school community where every child feels safe, loved, and challenged. We believe students are individuals with unique strengths and talents who need to be known and have fun. Expectations for student achievement are high. The staff at Evergreen work to ensure we fulfill our mission – to be leaders in personalizing this educational experience – by helping our students find the self-satisfaction in knowing they made the effort to become the best of which they are capable. Our teachers are experienced, warm, and caring individuals who love what they do each day.
Our curriculum is rich and diverse. Our language arts program incorporates best practices as based on current literacy research. Reading and writing permeate every aspect of instruction. Students write on a daily basis, with an emphasis on making connections to their own lives. Similarly, our math program emphasizes the application of mathematics to the real world. Skills and concepts are linked to situations and contexts pertinent to our children and not in isolation. Our science and social studies curricula are inquiry based, challenging students to think deeply. Our teachers integrate and connect subject areas whenever possible, demonstrating to students that the world is complex, diverse, and intertwined. Our professional staff collaborates regularly to revise and tweak the curriculum designing activities that promote differentiation of instruction. Our students are also exposed to a variety of special areas including choral music, band, art, physical education, and technology.
Our Parent Teacher Organization is second to none. Volunteers vigorously support every facet of the school program including our trips, the cafeteria, the classrooms, the clubs, and the many activities that take place during the year. Working in concert with staff, the PTO provides additional resources to aid teachers and students. Please consider joining your talents to their efforts furthering strengthening the home-school partnership.
We take great pride in our school, what it has to offer, and its accomplishments. Evergreen is truly a special place; we hope you get a chance to visit our school and see the allure for yourself.
Thank you for your support and continued involvement,
