Principal's Message

Greeting Evergreen Families,


Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Evergreen Elementary School! The entire staff looks forward to working collaboratively with our families to ensure the academic, social and emotional success for our students. I extend a warm welcome to our new and returning families.  I am entering my 6th year as the proud principal of Evergreen School and I eagerly anticipate meeting you all in person.


Tuesday, August 16th is the first day of school. Like every Tuesday during the year, it is an early release day. Parents are welcome to walk their child onto campus on the first day of school. Being that we are a closed campus, students are to be dropped off at the designated gates starting the 2nd day of school. I want to provide our families with information to prepare for the upcoming school year. In many ways we are anticipating going back to a more typical school year. However, I ask our families to stay flexible and open-minded as there will be adjustments and changes needed throughout the year. As you all know, there has been a rise to COVID cases the past few weeks. LA County Public Health will be releasing the Reopening guidelines for schools at the end of the month. EWCSD will be sending out COVID guidelines through Parent Square by August 5, 2022.


This year our school wide theme is “Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow”.  We will inspire our students to set goals, to achieve social, emotional and academic success. We are committed to preparing our students to be 21st century leaders by instilling  the necessary skills to communicate and collaborate effectively.  Students will be provided with opportunities to think critically and show their creativityAt Evergreen we believe that every child is capable of learning and excelling in their education. Together we will educate and empower the leaders of tomorrow.


Establishing and maintaining a close school to home communication system is vital for student success. I am here to help our students be the best they can be. If I can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me. All my communication with our families is done though Parent Square. Please ensure to complete your Aeries Data Confirmation and update your information so I can best reach you.


I am thrilled and excited to open up our school! I look forward to seeing our veteran students and welcoming our new Dragons for the 2022-2023 school year.
