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.”

Parent & Teacher Conferences

Teachers are in the process of sending home communication regarding Parent/Teacher conferences. Please take advantage of an opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher during October. Parent/Teacher conferences are very important to the success of our students. The information that is shared during the conferences can be very valuable and helpful to parents, teachers, and the students alike. In addition to the information that the teachers share, the conference is also a good time for a parent to ask any questions they may have about the curriculum, academic standards, homework, classroom procedures or any other items of concern or interest. When parents and the school work together great things can happen in the lives of our students.

Order forms and money is due back at school on October 11th. The school goal is to sell 1,000 items. If the goal is met, Mr. Jennings becomes a human hamster!

Student Council Project

Student Council will be collecting items for a National Guard unit that is currently serving in Kuwait. Below is a list of some items that they can use and really enjoy. Please feel free to send these items in to school. Student Council will collect what comes in and then send out the packages. We would like to send the unit a care package in October, November, and December. All three of these months have special holidays and it can be hard to be away from family. Any item you could send in would be greatly appreciated.
