SPRING HAS ARRIVED!

Spring has arrived and we are here for it! While rain and cloudy skies are inevitable, it has been a treat to see the sun shining and reminding us why we love where we live - and even better is getting to see so many faces and smiles again! 

While we are full speed ahead with Spring activities and planning, I want to take a moment to reflect on the incredible things that have taken place at Evergreen in the last month. Not only did we launch our first ever Online Auction, but we held our first in-person event in more than 2 years, Parents' Night Out. Both events were met with tremendous success and we are proud of our community for stepping up to fundraise in a big way, as well as stepping out, to attend our group event. Thank you to everyone who participated!

 

Through the Online Auction, Virtual Raffle, Portrait Sales and Parents' Night Out activities, we raised more than $20,000 for the Organization of Parents and Teachers! Those dollars go right back into elevating your child's, and your family's, experience at Evergreen Academy. We appreciate the leadership of Keri Sliger, our Auction and Parent's Night Out Chair, along with the assitance of parents Ben Betz, Stephanie Weymouth, Sarah Fink, Ruthe Graybeal and Susie Pederson + all our Room Parents! Additioanlly, we would like to thank our Adminsitration and Staff who were tremedous in helping in every way!

 

March also brought our Virtual Talent Show and Evergreen Eats Out at Zeek's Pizza of Woodinville. This year's Talent Show was incredible with a total of 31 acts ranging from horeseback riding, to piano performances, to skateboarding and everything in between. We are so proud of the students for their confidence and wilingness to share their talents, as well as though who came the night of, to support their Evergreen family. 

We ended the month on another high note with our first assembly in 2 years! Many of our students have never even been to an assembly before and the excitement was palpable. Our students and families were wowed by the performance, EXTREME Science with "The Science Wizard," Brian Hagerman from America's Got Talent. His quick wit, jokes and kid friendly science let us get hands on with learning and the energy was felt! It was surely the highlight of my week to see so many smiles and hear laughter fill the gym once again. Thank you to those families who joined and got a taste of what it's like to be back on campus. There is more to come!

As always, it is a pleasure to serve as your OPT President and I look forward to a fun filled Spring - it is packed with events and activities. Be on the look out for information realted to our upcoming April events; S.T.E.A.M. Fair, Earth Day/Campus Beautification, the Roller Skating Party and so much more!

All my best and enjoy your Spring Break!
