Picnic with the Principal

A new program designed for Mr. Sweeney to identify and acknowledge students who have made improvement in traditional and nontraditional ways. These include behavior as well as academics.

Student Council

Evergreen School Student Council represents the voice of our students. They help to plan and execute school-wide special activities and provide input on school decisions. Our Student Council consists of four student officers, which include president, vice president, treasurer, and historian.

Girls on the Run

The Girls on the Run program encourages girls in 3rd - 6th grades to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. This spring program begins in February culminating in a celebratory 5K race in May.

Project Cornerstone

Developmental assets are positive relationships, opportunities, values and skills that young people need to become caring and responsible. Evergreen Elementary School is committed to helping our children in developing these assets.

Asset Building Champions Program
The ABC Program is a literature-based program addressing important issues like respect, tolerance, honesty, peaceful conflict resolution, taking a stand against bullying behaviors, and refusing to participate in gossip. Volunteers read specially selected books in the classroom, then lead discussions and activities that help teach valuable lessons related to these issues.

My Name,. My Identify

My Name My Identity is a campaign created by the Santa Clara County Office of Education and its Multilingual Education Services team with the Curriculum and Instruction Department. Since each of us is unique, so is our name. Because our name is tied to our identity, we would not wish to have our names changed or mispronounced. When our name is changed or unintentionally mispronounced, it is a misrepresentation of who we are -- because our name represents our identity.

As our world becomes increasingly connected, cross-cultural communication increases. We interact with more people from diverse backgrounds and experiences, many with different languages and ethnicities. Having the ability to effectively communicate with others who are different from ourselves opens up possibilities for deeper understanding and friendship based on mutual respect. It is also an essential skill in the 21st century.
School is a community, which prepares our students to succeed in the global world. To be an effective member of this global world, we can model respect for each other in the school community by learning about each other’s stories, our unique names, and their proper pronunciations.
Objectives of this Campaign
Bring awareness to the importance of respecting one’s name and identity in schools as measured by the number of community members making a pledge to pronounce students’ names correctly
Build a respectful and caring culture in school communities that values diversity as measured by my name stories posted

on social media.
