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 Tuesday, November 6 at 6:15 in the Art/Music room. All parents are encouraged to attend.

Proud of Our Students

110 of our students had perfect attendance during the month of October. We have 11 students who have completed all of the ExtraMath Program, and several more are getting very close. 174 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!

American Education Week

We have several events and activities planned for American Education Week. A list of those can be found in your student's Friday Folder. I do want to emphasize two of the events here:

Grandparents Day (November 14)

This is a special time for students to spend a little time at school with their grandparents. A form is included in every student's Friday Folder. Please complete this form if your student will be having a grandparent join us. We want to make sure that we have proper accommodations for everyone for lunch.

Math and Science Exploration Night (November 15 6:00-7:30)

We have arranged for the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) to be with us during this evening event. There will be several exploration activities for students and their family members to enjoy and learn. Everton students will also receive a ticket for cool prizes to be drawn during morning announcements the following day!
