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 all 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
This year will be a year unlike no other we have known. For those who have been with us in
previous years, we have new protocols and safety measures to protect the health and wellbeing
of our students, staff, and ultimately our greater community. As we move through this
unprecedented year, I ask for your patience and understanding as we know there will be times
when we need to change and shift in our actions and routines to continue to keep everyone
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.
Education truly is a partnership. We know that children learn best when parents and families
support the work of the school. Support can come in many ways – 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; participating in
parent/teacher interviews, whether virtual, over the phone or in person; and, ensuring that
your children arrive at school on time, 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!
