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, February 5th at 6:15 in the Art/Music room. All parents are encouraged to attend.

Proud of Our Students

105 of our students had perfect attendance during the month of December. We have 35 students who have completed all of the ExtraMath Program. 328 certificates have been awarded to students for their progress in the Lexia reading program. Our students met their second quarter goal of collecting 4,000 Box Tops for Education. We celebrated with a team spirit wear day. I am so very proud of the accomplishments of our students!
