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.”

Off to a Great Start!

The first three days have been absolutely wonderful! I have enjoyed hearing the sound of children back in the classrooms at Everton. If these three days are any indication, we are going to have a terrific school year! One of the greatest joys I have is walking into the classrooms and watching students learning. I love seeing that sparkle in their eyes when they "get it"! There is so much that goes into educating children. The task does not fall on the teacher alone, it takes all of us working together. I encourage parents to maintain open communication with their child's teacher. We all have the same goal. We want children to be successful.

New Windows

Everton is very fortunate to have new windows installed throughout the school. The installation is almost complete. I want to assure you that the installation will not cause any disruption of students learning, as installation is taking place around student hours at school.
