Bordered by a large neighborhood park, Evergreen Elementary School is one of six elementary schools in the Cotati-Rohnert Park Unified School District. Our current K-6 enrollment is 650 students. Our school population is growing in its cultural diversity providing enrichment through involvement with families from many cultures.
Students are encouraged to do their best. Life Skills are promoted, taught, and reinforced. The school climate is secure, calm, and caring. Expectations are clear and attainable. Rewards and recognitions are plentiful. Evergreen students feel safe, happy, and ready to learn. With the assistance of our many intervention programs, all children are supported academically, physically, socially, and emotionally. Evergreen Elementary School is proud of our traditions, our reputation, and our partnerships with parents, community, and businesses.
Evergreen is known for its strong community support. As a school and a family we continually strive to improve our relationships, recognizing that the effort of the whole team is needed to help every child be successful. Parents are viewed as partners and encouraged to take active roles in our school program. Every school day parents are on campus making bulletin boards, hanging posters, tutoring children, organizing fundraisers, participating in committees, and meeting formally and informally with the principal. Our close proximity to Sonoma State University offers an opportunity to benefit from a university supported after school-homework program.
School effectiveness is monitored using a variety of informational sources. Evergreen staff focuses on continuous improvement in student achievement, using multiple indicators to monitor progress toward meeting specific targeted objectives addressing student needs at all grade levels and in all subjects. The cornerstone of our accountability plan asks the question, “How are students performing on the multiple measures and how do we meet the challenge of improving student performance on those specific measures?”
Indicative of our highly professional district, teacher representatives from all schools have attended workshops and trainings on assessment and accountability. The Evergreen staff and principal have participated in numerous professional trainings to identify standards and implement best teaching practices that support the curriculum using data to guide instruction. Teachers use standards-aligned assessments to match curriculum being used in instruction. The direct correlation between standards and state approved curriculum materials have contributed to the increase in our API scores. Since the beginning of the state accountability reporting, Evergreen School has worked to raise student achievement.
At Evergreen, we strive to ensure the continuous growth of academic achievement for all students, to ensure a safe, secure, and disciplined teaching and learning environment, and to ensure that parents, businesses, and community members are actively engaged in the educational process.
Evergreen school is where children and learning come first. We are quite proud of our beautiful campus where high expectations for learning are maintained. We are working together to build a strong community of learners with a shared vision of empowering our students with the skills and abilities necessary for 21st century living. Students are given many support systems to assist them in achieving the rigorous state and district standards.
Evergreen Elementary School is committed to providing high-quality education to our diverse student body. We achieve our goals through a challenging curriculum, quality teachers, and an atmosphere that emphasizes communication and cooperation. Together, these elements create a safe and engaging learning environment in which all students can excel.
