October 2018 ~ Issue 20
Dear Evergreen Elementary Families,

Happy Fall! We are well into the 2018-2019 school year, and it is exciting to see your children learning and growing each day!

In the classroom, Evergreen teachers are working tirelessly to implement our new Eureka Math curriculum. Our students are excited about math and their skills are improving greatly. We also just finished up our first Walk-to-Read session. Last week, I met with grade level teachers to form our new Walk-to-Read groups for our October session. It is so encouraging to see the reading skills of our students develop before our very eyes!
Walk-a-Thon
Vroom... Vroom... Put on your walking shoes and get ready to start your engines!

Our annual Walk-A-Thon will be Friday, October 12th at 1:30pm. Families are welcome and encouraged to walk with students.

Want to volunteer? We still have spots available - Sign up here:

School Site Council

The Evergreen Elementary School Site Council is in need of four parents to serve for the 2018-2019 school year. It is a two-year commitment. Meetings will be held on Mondays at 3:15 p.m. on October 22, January 14, March 11 and April 29. This is an important part of our school decision-making team. We are in need of one parent who will also represent the ELAC (English Language Advisory Committee). School Site Council Bylaws require that the school community conduct a formal vote for new membership.

If you are interested in serving, please email Mrs. Hansen at jennifer_hansen@crpusd.org. Please attach a statement (may not be more than 75 words) of why you would like to serve on the Site Council.  Thank you!

Construction Update

*Campus updates are due to our community's support of our district by voting for current bond measures. We are so grateful to have the ability to make these much needed campus improvements due to your generosity.*

We are hoping that the North end parking lot behind the G Wing will be starting any day now! Thank you for your support and flexibility as we make these much needed campus improvements.
Communication

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 rochelle_gregori@crpusd.org 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: https://www.facebook.com/CRPUSDEvergreen/ This is a closed group for Evergreen families and staff only.

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

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 (www.smile.amazon.com), 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 www.smile.amazon.com instead of the regular amazon.com website each time you shop at Amazon. Thank you for your support!
