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, October 3rd at 6:15 in the Art/Music room. All parents are encouraged to attend.

Popcorn Fridays

Each Friday we have popcorn available for our students. There is a lot of work and organization that goes into making this happen. Thank you to the parents who volunteer their time for the students here at Everton!

Parent/Teacher Conferences

It's hard to believe, but the Friday, October 6th is the last day of the first quarter of this school year! Teachers will be sending home communication regarding Parent/Teacher conferences. Please take advantage of an opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher on October 11th. 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 receiving your student's report card, 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.

Reminders from the Office

  • Please update the school office any time your phone number changes.
  • Please contact the school office prior to 2:00 for any transportation changes

School Pictures

School pictures will be taken on Thursday, October 5th for all students. Additional information can be found in your child’s Friday Folder.

Fire Safety & Prevention Week

The Everton Volunteer Fire Department will be partnering with Everton Elementary School during fire safety and prevention week. This is recognized nationally during the week of October 9th-14th. Some of our local volunteer firemen will be speaking with our students on ways of staying safe in case of a fire. Parents are encouraged to join us in our efforts by discussing fire safety at home. Following are a few questions to start the discussion:

In the unfortunate event that there should be a fire at home, how would you get out of the home?

How will you get out of the home if a door is blocked?

Once you get outside, where will everyone in the home meet?

How will you get help?
