Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back to another school year at Evergreen Elementary. As your Principal, I am honoured to be part of a well-reputed community and I always look forward to working with all our committed students, parents, staff, and community members. Success for all comes from a true partnership and we will continue to make Evergreen a place where students are assisted and encouraged to make connections between “real life” and the curriculum.
The implementation of the school success plan; in particular literacy, numeracy, robotics, and the iPad project are ongoing initiatives that are very close to my heart. As a school, we value communication between home and school and we are dedicated in giving your children the best education possible. We engage in on-going professional development where we can constantly learn and bring new ideas to the table.
We will continue to work with the Peaceful Schools International initiatives in creating and maintaining a culture of peace in our school. On a daily basis, we will strive for success for our students as a “school community working together”. Please take the time to go through the agenda and our redesigned website, both developed to inform you of our guidelines, procedures, forms, information, activities and upcoming events.
We look forward to seeing everyone and to another exciting year at Evergreen.
