Our School

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 5 and EES (Enhanced Educational Support Class). 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

​​Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. Our school, along with all CBE schools, made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

Acknowledging the Land

We would like to acknowledg​​e the traditional territories and oral practices of the Blackfoot Nations, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani and the Kainai. We also acknowledge the Tsuut’ina and Stoney Nakoda First Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.​

​​​School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

​​​​School Improvement Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
