core_valuesEvergreen Elementary School maintains four core values.

1. SECURITY — We believe students must feel a sense of security while at school. They deserve to be free from fear – fear of criticism, fear of bullying, fear of physical harm. Teachers and other staff must be vigilant in guarding against anything that would cause a child to be afraid at school.

2. PERSEVERANCE — We believe students should be taught the value of never giving up. Students learn at different speeds. Some students fall behind and may become discouraged. We believe in teaching the truism that “All things are possible” if only you persevere. “Perseverance” is a quality that should be present in students – so they keep on trying to master a subject- as well as teachers who should never give up n a student who may be struggling.

3. RESPECT — All types of students are welcome at EverGreen Academy. Teachers and staff must take pains to make certain that all students are treated with the utmost respect regardless of physical, mental, economic, or national origin differences.

4. JOY — We believe that children learn best when they are in an environment that is stress free and is full of happiness and joy. Factors that enhance children’s joy include an atmosphere of fun, plenty of art, music, and a variety of physical activities spread throughout the school day. Not to be overlooked is the disposition of the teachers and other staff. If children regularly see teachers and staff smiling and enjoying their work, the atmosphere of learning is greatly enhanced.
