No School Friday, May 24
Memorial Day, Monday, May 27
Enjoy your four-day weekend!
Evergreen's Kindergarten Roundup is scheduled for May 30th. If you have a kindergarten age child, please come in and register so we can get you on the list for Roundup.
This is the time of year when we begin to anticipate the upcoming school year and all of the wonderful times ahead. It is also the time of year when we begin to think about placing students into classrooms for the next school year. Placement of students is a responsibility of school staff. To read a letter from our Director of Student Services, Jared Hoadley with more details, please click here.
A Big Thank You!
A great big thank you to all the performers and participants who made our Culture Night a big success. The turnout was great, the food was delicious and the performances were outstanding. What a great team effort.

Great work on the fundraiser! We raised almost $4000 toward the purchase of a reader board for the school. PTO is working with the County on sign details. Watch for more information to come.

To see a list of Evergreen's Student of the Month award recipients, please go to our Student Life page. This award arose out of our new Positive Behavior Intervention System. Award winners exemplify the qualities we strive for at Evergreen and truly represent Responsibility, Respect and Safety. The monthly award is given to one student at each grade level. Sixth grade students who receive this award are in the running for the YMCA Principal's Leadership Award that provides a week at Camp Reed during the summer.
Evergreen is starting a recycling program for used but still useable electronics. We are collecting inkjet and laser printer cartridges, used cell phones, iPods and other mp3 players, GPS devices, digital cameras and laptops. We are working with a company called the Funding Factory and will earn points for qualifying items. You can see a complete list of qualifying items by visiting FundingFactory.com. Points will be used to purchase items for the school (similar to Boxtops for Education). If you have ink cartridges that you are not going to refill, an old cell phone that you’re hanging onto because you don’t know where to get rid of it, or you’re updating your laptop and don’t have a use for your old one – think of us. If you work for a business that doesn’t have an electronics recycling program in place – think of us. Items will be collected at the office and sent to the Funding Factory when we have a full box. We think this is a great way to clean out some desk drawers and are hoping this is a painless way to raise funds for some of the extras here at Evergreen.

No Cell Phones or other electronics at school
Because cell phones are disruptive to learning in our classrooms, students may not use cell phones at school. Cell phones that are turned off, may be stored in a student's backpack for use after school. This includes: iPods, MP3 players, and handheld games such as Gameboy and DS. Electronics will be confiscated and parents will be called to pick them up in the office.
For the safety of our students and your pets, please do not bring your pets onto school property. If you bring the family dog with you to pick up your son or daughter, please keep your pet in the car. For student safety, it is important that we follow this new guideline. We love pets as well, but we cannot risk student safety at any time. Thanks for your understanding and support.
