Evergreen has been named a Green School of Excellence! We received the designation from the NC Green Schools Program, an effort of the Center for the Environment at Catawba College in Salisbury. Evergreen Community Charter School received the highest honor, the NC Green School of Excellence. “This honor recognized the hard and important work that our teachers, staff, parents, students and partners do,” said Dr. Susan Mertz, the school’s director. “The work is important because of the lasting impact a green school curriculum, facility and culture have on children. Our students are advocates for green practices and stewards of our environment.” Being awarded the highest NC Green School level is “an honor and affirmation that we are living our mission,” Mertz said. The NC Green Schools Program promotes sustainability in the state’s public and private schools from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. It helps teachers connect and share ideas, offers resources and tools to help them start green initiatives and recognizes schools that meet specified goals.

The Evergreen Development Fund

The Evergreen Fund is our annual giving campaign which allows us to pay for the unique activities, facilities and outings that makes an Evergreen education so special. As a public charter school we receive state and local funding, but in order to continue providing the additional services and activities you don't find at most schools, we need your help in making up the difference of approximately $400 per student.

 

Or, feel free to drop off your donation in the main office - envelopes available at the front desk.


Every Gift Counts

 

If 20 families give $10, that $200 will fund a field trip.

If 10 families give $5, that $50 will buy books for the classroom.

If 200 families give $450, we will be very close to reaching our goal of $100,000!  

 


There Are Many Ways to Give!

 

Art students have recently completed their art projects for the Art By Me fundraiser.  This unique program turns your young artist's artwork into a variety of custom-made products and helps to fund Evergreen's art program.  Orders will arrive in time for the winter holidays.  Please visit the Art By Me website to place your order.

SHOP for HT brands and a percentage of your purchase helps Evergreen. Participating brands include Harris Teeter, HT Traders, Farmers Market and Harris Teeter Organics; as well as, the HT pharmacy. Link your card here.

 

Here's another great way to support Evergreen!  Whenever you make purchases on Amazon, start at smile.amazon.com and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to Evergreen.  Just indicate Evergreen as your charitable organization.  It won't cost extra!

 When you make purchases using The Ingles Advantage™ Card, Ingles will give Evergreen a portion of those sales. The portion can be used by the school to purchase computers and school supplies. Link your card here to start making a difference!
