Veterans Day at Evansdale

After a week of celebrating and focusing on peace, the French Team would like to commemorate November 11 with the entire school. In the U.S., we call it Veteran's Day, for France it's Jour de l'Armistice, and in Canada and the U.K., it's Remembrance Day.

*Flyers were sent home with students. Please send names of people you know who served in the military.

*Students will make poppy flowers (les coquelicots) during French with Mme Lewis, (and in the immersion classes), and write names of their veterans and active duty members.

*The flowers will decorate the lobby.

*There will be a moment of Silence at 11:00am to mark the signing of the Armistice Treaty in 1918 (11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month).

*The French Immersion students (K-3) will bring madeleines (small "memory" cakes) as a gesture of peace, kindness and goodwill.

We look forward to this day. Please let us know if you have any questions!

Please Don't Throw Money in the Trash

Box Top$: Keep collecting those box tops Evansdale! Each one is worth a dime and they add up quick! Consider asking family, friends, or coworkers to help collect. A new collection bag was sent home in this week’s courier. The next deadline is February 6th.

Calling all Kroger Shoppers! It is not too late, connect your Kroger Plus Card and Evansdale gets money back each time you shop! It’s easy – sign up at and connect your Plus card to Evansdale. The organization number is 107494. Your one-time effort means money to Evansdale all year!

Attention Publix Shoppers! Pick up one of the green Publix Commitment keychain cars in the front office of the school (or request it via a note in the courier), and have the cashier scan it each time you shop at Publix. Evansdale gets money back each time you shop! Last year we made over $1000. Friends and family can use these to help Evansdale too!

Thanks in advance for your help!
