Student, Parent and Community Involvement
Parent involvement is one of Evergreen’s greatest assets. Volunteers are seen daily in all areas of our school, and thousands of volunteer hours are contributed annually. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to be active participants in their children’s education. Volunteers serve as classroom assistants, tutor students, share their talents through special projects, prepare materials for classroom use, help at book fairs, holiday shops and picture days, and support after school activities and specialist times.
Community activities taking place at Evergreen include Winter Math Festival, Dr. Seuss Week, McDonald's Teacher Night, STEM fair, visit by local artist/ author, Lakewood Playhouse, Tacoma Symphony, field day and BBQ, and parent trainings.
Evergreen’s vision statement reflects our belief about our learning community. We are all teachers. We are all learners.
