From the Principal’s Office:
Dear Evergreen Families,
The sun is finally here and we hope it stays as we finish out the last few months of the school year. We had such a great April celebrating Earth Day. Through your donations of plants we were able to start our outdoor classroom garden boxes. This will be a great project which we plan on continuing throughout the upcoming months.
May 4th through May 8th is Teacher Appreciation Week. We have amazing teachers and staff at Evergreen Academy and we are excited to celebrate everything thing they do to make a difference in your child’s life!
In celebration of our mothers this month all of our classrooms will be hosting a Mother’s Day Event. Please see your child’s monthly newsletter for specific dates and times. We hope you enjoy this special time together in the classroom.
Although it is hard to believe summer is around the corner, it is time to start making summer camp plans. Evergreen Academy offers summer camp starting the week of June 22nd and running through the week of August 21st. Our camps offer five days of activities from 9:00am – 3:00pm. You can choose to add extended hours from 7:00am – 9:00am and 3:00pm – 6:00pm. We offer a wide range of outdoor activities as well as indoor activities. Our specialty camps are optional programs, operating during regular camp hours 9:00am – 12:00pm, which provide even more choices for unique and exciting adventures. Camp Registration is on a first come first enrolled basis.

Lunch & Snack Policies
Planning ahead with your young child to prepare the lunch together can be a wonderful activity to share. Older children can be expected to take on this responsibility. Children staying for lunch should bring food and drink that are nutritious. Please do not send soda or candy. With respect to our environment all food should be packed in recyclable containers and drinks in thermoses or reusable containers. We will encourage your child to finish what you send with them and return anything uneaten at the end of the day. The children will not be sharing their lunches.
Snack time is an integral part of our Practical Life curriculum. It is a learning experience that teaches grace and courtesy. Evergreen Academy provides nutritious snacks as part of our regular program.
Nuts and Peanut Butter
Due to the severity of some children’s allergic reaction to peanut butter, we request the parents’ cooperation in creating a “peanut butter and nut free” environment.
