Evergreen Junior High School

Evergreen Parent Involvement Policy

Philosophy

Evergreen Junior High School is committed to the goal of providing quality education for every child in the school. To this end, we want to establish partnerships with parents and with the community. Everyone gains if Evergreen Junior High School and home work together to promote high achievement by our children. Neither home nor Evergreen can do the job alone. Parents play an extremely important role as children’s first teachers. Support for their children and for the school is critical to children’s success at every step along the way.
