American Legion Essay Contest Winners

The American Legion essay contest gave our students a great opportunity to reflect upon what Americanism means. Through the process of writing the essay, the children realized ways that they display Americanism or Patriotism every day. Thursday night the winners were presented with a certificate and monetary award at the American Legion’s monthly meeting. The students were able to speak with the Veterans who were very impressed with all of the essays submitted. Congratulations to our 4th and 5th grade winners! Maggie Kotchessa, Madison Trapanese, Matthew Moyer, Anthony Donnini, Meksha Patel, and absent from photo, Olivia Ford-Venticinque.


Career Speakers!

This week EverGreen Elementary had two more career speakers.  Heather Chapman spoke with the 1st graders about being a pharmacist.  The students got to see how the things they are learning in math and science are used by pharmacists every day in their job.    Cristine Faustmann visited our 3rd grade classrooms, and spoke to the students about what an insurance investigator does.  They got to try out their own investigative skills to solve a few cases.

New Scholastic Children’s Dictionaries!

On January 31, 2018, the third grade students at EverGreen Elementary were the proud recipients of new Scholastic Children’s Dictionaries.  The Wayne County Community Foundation generously sponsors this project.  Each dictionary is inscribed with both the student and donor’s names. Foundation Board Director Mr. Mark James presented the dictionaries, and the students could not have been more grateful.  They are fascinated with the text features and illustrations of the beautiful dictionaries.  The students will put them to good use for writing workshop and language arts activities.

RDW and EverGreen Elementary Schools Celebrate Apple Crunch Day

On October 24 the elementary schools celebrated Apple Crunch Day in their classrooms and were served apple crisp and apple slices for lunch. This is a nation wide event that encourages healthy eating habits. It’s an opportunity for teachers to teach their students how to use apples and other fruits to make fun and nutritious snacks. Teachers incorporated this day into their lessons and even used apples to create science experiments! Learning and healthy eating is beneficial and fun! If you want to make some apple snacks at home, just google, “Healthy snacks kids can make” and enjoy!


Mr. Pidgeon Breaks a Board!

During a presentation by Twin Dragons Martial Arts, participants were able to find their inner ninja skills by breaking a board. Mr. Pidgeon was presented with a white belt for his board breaking effort! Children also learned strategies to protect themselves in situations that can potentially be dangerous, such as a stranger approaching. Master Kennedy donated all of the proceeds that were collected to purchase the boards, to the EverGreen PTA.
