From our Director
From Evergreen Public Schools Superintendent, Mike Merlino
Distance learning continues through the end of the school year. Teachers will provide learning and feedback to students in a variety of ways such as email, conferences, progress reports and other options that will not negatively impact grades. We are on this journey together. Our focus is to support learning and continue instruction for all students during these unprecedented and challenging times.

A new student led business
The students used computer software to create a mock-up of the shirt with the names and logo as it would appear and pitched it to each program. The students developed an ordering process and shared sample merchandise to demonstrate the quality of the clothing. The interest of the staff and students created quite a buzz on campus resulting in sales that exceeded their goals!
The shirts are in the process of being printed. Stay tuned for updates.
