Dear Evergreen Families,
I wanted to start off by saying hello and to introduce myself to all of the Evergreen Elementary families. This is not how I imagined starting my first year as principal of Evergreen but we have all found ourselves in very unique circumstances over the past six months. The start of the 2020-2021 school year will bring both new challenges and opportunities. As a school, we will be working hard to provide the best education for your children. Throughout the summer we have been preparing for all possible learning situations, whether it is remote learning, in-person instruction, or a combination of the two. Dr. Woell was able to answer many questions about our return to school in the Town Hall Meetings, which along with many other resources, can be found on the district webpage under Covid-19 Parent Communication. This letter will provide important information about the upcoming school year for Evergreen Elementary School.
On Friday, August 21st at 2:30pm you will be able to find your child’s classroom teacher through PowerSchool. Sign-up and log-in directions for accessing the program were mailed out last week. If you did not receive the information in the mail, please do not hesitate to contact the Evergreen office and we can assist you.
On Wednesday, August 26th, we will have a supply pick-up for all students. This will be a drive-thru pick-up, similar to the one we had at the end of last school year however we will be distributing materials from the large gym this year. Families will be able to pick up PTA school supplies (if pre-ordered) along with workbooks, packets, and other teacher organized materials that students will need to start the school year. Please drive up to door by the large gym at your assigned time slot and staff will bring needed supplies to your car. Please have a sign in your passenger window with your child’s first and last name and grade. If you have multiple children at Evergreen, pick the time slot that works best for your family. If you cannot make it to the time slot assigned to your child's grade level, then choose one that works for your family but for the efficiency of the process only do this if you cannot make the assigned time slot. If you cannot make it at all on this day you will need to make arrangements with the office to pick up your child’s supplies after Wednesday, the 26th. The schedule for supply pick-up is listed below:
1st Grade- 10:00-11:00
2nd Grade- 11:00-12:00
3rd Grade- 12:00-1:00
4th Grade- 1:00-2:00
Open Time- 2:00-3:00
This year's curriculum night will be On Demand. Each teacher will put together a video presentation on Youtube for you to watch at your convenience. There will also be presentations from myself, Specials teachers and other related content. In addition to the video presentations there will also be Google Forms for each grade level for you to post any questions you may have and teachers will respond in a timely fashion.
The Evergreen Elementary School Staff is excited to start the school year. We understand that our students may be nervous about the fact that we are starting school remotely. As a staff, we are not only going to focus on academics but also on building relationships with our students and checking in on their social emotional well being. Finally, communication with our families will also be emphasized, as our partnership with our parents will be a key to our students' success. Please let me know if you have any questions as we kick off the 2020-2021 school year.
