Where Learning is an Adventure
Where Learning is an Adventure
Evergreen Community Charter School is a learning community committed to the pursuit of excellence in holistic education of mind, body, and spirit. We prepare students for successful lifelong learning, social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and service. We value the voice of every member of our community.
Our EOGs for grades 3-8 will be May 27 - June 11. Note: This is over the Memorial Day holiday. Students and parents should prioritize attendance on school days during this EOG window to avoid make-up testing. Stay tuned for specific class test dates, coming early May.
We invite you to participate in a bold and important project. This will be the work of volunteers who submit, create, and organize digital documents that explain our culture. We have a living list of our beliefs, rituals, and customs and have identified the kinds of documents that we want to collect for each item on the list. For example, we want photos, written explanations, videos, and scanned drawings or diagrams of things such as our core beliefs, Graduation and Moving Up ceremonies, products from Exhibition Night, campouts, etc. We have a rich culture to preserve and I need many volunteers to make this happen.
Evergreen Community Charter School is an innovative educational endeavor developed and operated collaboratively by educators, parents, students, and the larger community.
Our learning community is inspired by a love of children and a commitment to the greater good, both of which form our decisions and our practice. As a school community, we share beliefs about teaching and learning. (Click here for our Core Beliefs).
Evergreen is NOT a private school, we are a tuition-free PUBLIC charter school. Charter schools have been especially affected by the severe education budget cuts that have taken place over the past few years. We receive no funding for capital expenses such as our facility and grounds which accounts for a large part of our annual budget. Our gym renovation was financed through a capital fundraising project, the More than Just a Gym Campaign, the school’s reserve fund and private financing. We rely on gifts from our families, grandparents, foundations and local businesses to balance our budget each year.
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!
