Last Week at Evansdale
May 20th-22nd
School Updates
President's Corner

At the end of a fantastic year, we want to take a moment to thank all the parents and families who have contributed your time, talents and resources to our school.  We are truly grateful to have such an active and enthusiastic community.  Thank you for embodying our theme: Eagles United, Aguilas Unidas, Aigles Unis. 

We especially want to recognize three individuals who went above and beyond for our students this year!

Two of these parents are a dynamic duo who served as the coordinators for not one, but TWO events this year!  In addition, they are consistently showing up to support anything happening at our school. They do all this while juggling jobs and multiple children attending Evansdale!  We appreciate their positive attitudes and warm smiles to greet our families when they serve and their enthusiasm to have all our students’ interests and cultures represented.... Larkin Hocevar and Jenine Gathany!  

Our third parent is the creative energy behind the scenes putting together our stunning yearbook and coordinating the fun games at Fantastic Friday. She’s the face behind the camera at nearly all our events and ensures students and families enjoy photo memories that last. Whether it’s serving crepes or hanging flags in the front hallway, she’s always ready to jump in where needed...... Esther Sumner! 

Please join me in congratulating our PTA Volunteers of the Year …. Larkin Hocevar, Jenine Gathany, and Esther Sumner!

Supporter or appreciator of the arts?!

Help us prepare for a truly spectacular art installation! The Besharat Arts Foundation brings art to schools in the hope that daily contact with thought-provoking art will help children acquire a deeper level of understanding and empathy. And they are coming to our school! They will install inspiring photography around our school this summer but we need to tidy up a bit beforehand.  So…come clean the wall areas where the art pieces will hang!  

Cleaning Day

  • Wednesday, May 29 @ 10:00am
  • Show up ready to help our school shine! (No supplies needed.)
