A Message from the Head of School
As I sit in my home office working virtually, I am reminded of the most important reason why I came to Evergreen eight years ago. It was for the community. We have a wonderfully warm and welcoming community of students, staff, teachers, parents and grandparents. Community is one of our core beliefs, and that is what I miss most in our move to online learning.
There has been wonderful remote learning happening this week, from visiting (virtual) Scientists of the Month in 7th grade, to online classes of every kind, including academics but also art, PE and more.
One of the pillars of the Evergreen community is how we work with our students on their social and emotional development. I have seen the lessons our counselors are sending to our students through their teachers: lessons on mindfulness, on how to stay attentive for an online lesson, and about taking walks. I myself engaged in nature bingo when I spent some time outside this week.
I hope that you are all finding ways to stay attached to community as we work remotely. Staying connected will be important as we maintain who we are and what we believe in as an institution.
