November 2018 ~ Issue 21
Dear Evergreen Elementary Families,

Happy November! October was a very busy month around Evergreen. From the Founder's Day Parade, to the Walk-a-Thon, to our Halloween celebrations, our Bobcats showed great school pride this month!

We are so excited to announce that we SHATTERED our Walk-a-Thon fundraising goal of $35,000! Our students raised $40,833.96 this year, and 100% of those funds will go back into programs and technology for Evergreen. Thank you to everyone that worked so hard to contribute!

We are looking for a parent volunteer to run our Book Fair in April 2019. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Hansen at

CRPUSD has adopted a new student information system for the 2018-2019 school year, called PowerSchool. We are no longer utilizing the Quick Schools student information system. Parents should have received an email from PowerSchool with logon information. Please contact Ms. Rochelle at if you did not receive a logon email.

Communicating effectively with families on a regular basis is very important to me. I will utilize several methods to communicate with families: Facebook, the Evergreen Elementary website, Parent Messaging through PowerSchool, and our Evergreen Express newsletter. Here is how to access all of that information:

Facebook: This is a closed group for Evergreen families and staff only.

Information emailed to parents - Contact Ms. Rochelle at if you did not receive a logon email

Evergreen Express Newsletter: The Evergreen Express will be sent on a monthly basis.

PTA Corner

Evergreen families are the best in town, that is for sure! We came together and not just met our Walk-a-thon goal but blew past it and beat last years goal. We couldn’t have done it without you!

We are also well on our way to beating our last years membership totals with over 200 members by October. We hope your family enjoyed the Halloween carnival. We had a great turn out and the children had a lot of fun!

Our next meeting will be November 15th at 6:30 with dinner and child care provided. We hope you will be able to attend.  We have a dine and donate at Round Table Pizza on November 28th. We also have a great family fun night planned, so wear your pajamas and get ready to eat pancakes and play fun games on November 29th. All PTA events are free to families and a big thanks to all of you for continuing to make that possible.

Amazon Smile

Who doesn't like free money? Amazon Smile is a great way to earn money for Evergreen Elementary. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. I'm sure many of you shop via Amazon as well, and all of those purchases can add up to a LOT of free money for our school!

Here's how you can sign up:
On your first visit to AmazonSmile (, you are prompted to select a charitable organization from our list of eligible organizations. Please select "Evergreen Elementary PTA" in Rohnert Park. In order for Evergreen to receive funding, you must logon to instead of the regular website each time you shop at Amazon. Thank you for your support!
