The Eagles' Nest

From The Principal

I hope all of you are able to enjoy some time with your family during this break. When we return, we will hit the ground running with CTP testing for grades 1-5. While these assessments aren't considered to be "high-stakes", it is important that your child try their best. The assessments are broken into subtests, which means it takes longer to administer. Most subtests take less than an hour and your child will be able to carry on with their regular day.


The final stretch of the school year is here! We appreciate the flexibility all of you have shown during our arrival and dismissal times. Please try to adhere to your child's drop off schedule. In the last few weeks, we've had some students arriving earlier than usual. I'm including the schedule below:

Kindergarten & 5th grade - 8:10 - 8:20, 3:10 - 3:20

1st grade & 4th grade - 8:20 - 8:30, 3:20 - 3:30

2nd grade & 3rd grade - 8:30 - 8:40, 3:30 - 3:40


Finally, we will have a new face on campus when we return. Ms. Jenna Carpenter will be moving to Maryland later this month; her last day is April 16. Mr. Thomas Lee will join the classroom on April 12 and take over instruction on April 19. We will miss Ms. Carpenter and wish her the best! Please join me in welcoming Mr. Lee to the Evergreen Family!

Health & Safety Reminders

  • Please make sure you and your child are masked during arrivals.
  • Please wear your mask during dismissal.
  • If you arrive to carline early, please park until your arrival/dismissal time. This allows for carline to run smoothly.
  • You may want to send a couple of extra masks with your child each day. While we always have disposable children's masks in the office, many students would prefer their own mask.
  • If you or your child is being tested for COVID (due to an exposure or symptoms), please keep them at home until you receive the results.
  • Thank you for your support in keeping everyone safe and our school open!
