One Night Only!! .... A Night at the Apollo
Couldn't Make it to Your Student's APTT Night?
DCSD ASEDP Summer Camp at Evansdale, May 30-July 21
Check it Out Eagles....
As "Read Across America Day" rapidly approaches, Evansdale wants to make sure all eagles have the ability to read as many books as they can as often as they would like to do so. With great libraries in and around Evansdale, there is no reason not to have a book or books to read every day. Students visit the school library each week with their class, where they can check out books. Did you know parents can also check out books from our library?
Embry Hills Library is also a great local library that is easily accessible to the Evansdale community. It has many different types and levels of books. It also has computers for students to do research. All you need to check out books and more at the local libraries is a library card. Just click on the link below to fill out a card application and you will be on your way to having more books and resources at your fingertips than you ever dreamed. Happy Reading!
