Welcome to Evergreen School. It is with a great deal of pride we welcome you to the school year and thank you for choosing the Calgary Board of Education and Evergreen School. During your time here we hope we can work together to build a strong school community that meets the academic, social and emotional needs of your child. In the 21st century, the ability to adjust to meet the needs of individual students has never been more important. We hope that, together, we can embrace the diversity that makes up the Evergreen community to enrich the experience of each one of us over the coming school year.
Developing common language that represents expectations for adults and children in learning and social situations is an important part of building a school culture of learning. Behaviour programs often separate the learning from the behavior – while research and experience tells us they are inseparable. At Evergreen School, learning, social skills and connections to each other and the community will be guided by these statements:
- Respect This Place
- Respect Ourselves
- Respect Each Other
Evergreen School opened in September 2010. Evergreen School is a collaborative and innovative school. Currently, the enrolment is Kindergarten to Grade 3. Evergreen School is an inclusive environment celebrating cultural diversity and unique learning differences.
Our motto speaks volumes: Evergreen, Ever learning, Every Student, and Every Day. We have four pillars that guide the work that we do every day:
- Intellectual Engagement
- Character Education
- Global Citizenship
- Environmental Stewardship
Students demonstrate CBE Results of Academic Success, Character, Personal Development and Citizenship in authentic ways.
Evergreen is a Silver Leed School!
Evergreen School is built to high environmental standards. To maintain our standing we are going to be thoughtful about reducing our environmental footprint. To do that we are going to encourage:
- Garbageless lunches (lunches in containers that can be re-used)
- Paper and print reduction, share information digitally where possible
- Drivers to stop idling vehicles at bus and drop off zones
- Walking and cycling to school when possible
- All stakeholders to reduce, re-use and recycle
- Environmental education
- Everyone to turn off lights and computers when not needed
