Welcome to Everett Elementary

Principal, Mike Long

Dear Everett Families,

We welcome you and your student(s) to another exciting year of learning at Everett Elementary School! We continue to strive to provide the best education for each student.

During the 2020-2021 school year, we accomplished many goals. We are so proud of the way our students, families, and staff adapted to our pandemic procedures and the flexibility we all demonstrated. As we begin a new school year, we understand the importance to continue to challenge all of our students.

This year, we will continue to make student learning our top priority, with the goal of every child showing significant academic growth throughout the year. Over the summer, our teachers have received extensive training in strategies for academic growth. There are many instructional programs and strategies in place to ensure student success. Our Guided Reading structure provides instruction at each student’s instructional level and students advance accordingly. Technology is provided and used as a way to differentiate daily instruction. Many web-based programs will be used in addition to the core curriculum each child will receive. Also, teachers will incorporate Google Classroom, Zoom, and Classroom Dojo as ways to provide instruction and incentives for students. This technology will allow students to be challenged and engaged.

There will also continue to be a strong focus on attendance. Incentives for students will be provided throughout the year. Students who are at school every day with no tardies and no early dismissals will receive a perfect attendance pencil and a certificate each quarter. Our goal is to have at least 96% of our students at school each day. We know that student learning is maximized when everyone is in attendance and able to participate in the learning activities.

There will be many opportunities this year to get involved. The Family Literacy Program Group provides ESL classes and parenting information daily from 8:30 am – 10:30 am. Please call the school office for more information. I encourage all parents to be involved and see the great things that are happening at Everett!

Please continue working with the Everett staff in order to ensure successful results for your child. My door is always open for comments or questions. We look forward to seeing you at school!

Sincerely,

Mike Long

Principal
