On behalf of the entire staff at Evergreen Heights, I would like to welcome your family to our school community. We recognize that it takes a village to raise a child, and we know that when we as parents, community and school work together, our children will be successful learners and healthy individuals.
As a staff, we focus on providing an environment that focuses on high student achievement and well-being, while at the same time ensuring positive, caring, safe and inclusive learning opportunities. At Evergreen, we believe that above all respect, responsibility, honesty and kindness matter. When we demonstrate these traits, we will be successful individuals in all that we do – in academics, athletics and outdoor play, or the many extra-curricular activities that we promote.
We believe in strong communication between the school and home environments, and share information regularly through our newsletters, phone calls, Edsby, emails, the School Messenger system, and the Evergreen Heights website and Facebook page; and, of course, we welcome you to come and see us in person!
Education is a partnership. We know that children learn best when parents support the work of the school. Support can come in many ways – attending school functions or volunteering; participating in parent/teacher interviews; maintaining communication with your child’s teacher; talking with your children about their day at school; reading at home with your children and monitoring any homework responsibilities; and, ensuring that your children arrive at school nourished, rested and ready to learn.
We are very proud of the accomplishments of Evergreen and are looking forward to “soaring to greater heights” with you this year!
Pamela Marshall Gray, Principal
