Our Mission

“Everton Elementary School, with the support of a community that values education, effectively utilizes all resources to insure a safe, harmonious atmosphere where all students learn essential skills, are challenged to reach their potential, and are motivated to become creative, lifelong learners and healthy, responsible citizens.”


Everton’s PTO will be meeting on Wednesday, December 5th at 3:15 in the Art/Music room. All parents are encouraged to attend.

Proud of Our Students

97 of our students had perfect attendance during the month of November. We have 21 students who have completed all of the ExtraMath Program, and several more are getting very close. 256 certificates have been awarded to students for their progress in the Lexia reading program. I am so very proud of the accomplishments of our students!

Showing Improvement

We recently received good news from the Indiana Department of Education. According to our achievement and growth on ISTEP, we earned a school grade of an A!

I am very proud of the hard work of our students, teachers, and staff!
