Evergreen Champion Parents,

Thank you for another wonderful and productive school year.  I cannot thank everyone enough for your endless hours of volunteering, chaperoning, reading, organizing, donating and doing whatever was necessary to support students—both at home and at school.   We were, escorted by CoVid-19 into the Virtual Learning World with no preparation time for educators or families.  However, you stood by your children during these challenging times and collaborated with us to make the transition as smooth as possible.   Thank you will never be enough.  Most importantly, you made a difference; making it possible for our students to continue participating in the learning process with our faculty and staff at Evergreen Elementary School.

Special thanks to our PTO who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school experience.  We know more would have occurred if CoVid did not take place.  PTO stepped up and kept all informed having Virtual PTO Sessions to support parent learning.  These events could not occur without the endless energy, skills and devotion of the Evergreen staff.  Thanks, and well done to an incredible group of parents and professional educators collaborating for our students.

A final word to Evergreen students:  Thank you for all your hard work throughout the school year and especially during the last three months we engaged with you in our virtual learning environment.  Vice Principal Ogburn-Thompson and I are so honored to be your school leaders; you make it so easy for us to appreciate and being an Evergreen Eagle.  You keep me smiling and never forgetting why we decided to become educators. We are grateful for your joy, astute insights and amazing talents.  Sending our sincere well wishes to our fifth graders, whom we will miss greatly—we know you will be back to visit. Once an Evergreen Eagle, always an Evergreen Eagle. I pray everyone will have a safe and healthy summer break.

Until next school year, here is wishing you love, laughter, and learning.
