The staff and I welcome you to the Everett Elementary School website! I am looking forward to the opportunity to lead this great school as its new principal.

Our school was named for Edward Everett, an American statesman, orator, and scholar who lived from 1794-1865. Everett was a U.S. Congressman, Governor of Massachusetts, a U.S. Senator, Minister to England, President of Harvard University, and a Presidential Candidate. When Everett Junior High School opened in 1928, Lincoln had a total of about 13,000 students. Before the junior high school facility was constructed, an elementary school was built in the late 1800s at the corner of 12th and C streets. With renovations completed in 1992, the site returned to its original use as an elementary school location.

The strong focus of our school continues to be on increased student learning. We will continue to make student learning our top priority, with the goal of every child showing significant academic growth throughout the year. Many instructional programs and strategies are in place to ensure student success.

We have crafted an educational curriculum that has been thoughtfully and carefully designed to meet the needs of every child. We have a highly qualified and professional staff that is very dedicated to the needs of every student.

We are a Title I school and are guided by our Schoolwide Implementation Plan. It is our goal that Everett students have a strong foundation that will help them to be life-long learners while leading lives of responsibility and integrity.

There are many opportunities to get involved. Please watch for the many family nights to be held. Also, the Family Literacy Program Group will meet every day from 8:30 am -10:30 am for ESL classes, visits to classrooms, and parenting information. Please call the school office for more information. I encourage all parents to come to Everett and see the great things that are happening!

Here are some things you can do to help your child have a successful school year:

  • Ensure that your child attends school every day and on time.
  • Talk with your child about the high expectations you have for your child’s academic and social success.
  • Help your child to set goals for his/her academic and social success and insist that your child put forth 100% effort to achieve these goals.
  • Visit school.
  • Support your child’s teacher.

Our whole staff has been working very hard to prepare for your child’s success. We invite you to come to Everett Elementary any time to see the great progress we are making. Please continue working with our school 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!
