Evansville Elementary provides an engaging atmosphere for all students. Staff members believe and act on the mission statement, “Empowering Students to Succeed” by excelling in attendance, achievement and citizenship. Evansville celebrates the efforts of its students and staff in these three areas with the awarding of the Eagle Cup every year. The school also supports the idea that every child can learn. Every student sets personal goals in reading, math and writing. To empower students in reaching those goals, the school uses programs that develop a child’s ability to think, problem solve and create solutions in reading, math and writing. Evansville staff and students practice the four principles of the FISH Philosophy – PLAY!, Make Someone’s Day!, Choose Your Attitude!, and Be There!
Reading and math are fundamental parts of Evansville’s curriculum. To address the school’s reading scores, Evansville adopted a rigorous new program, Literacy By Design. Students study reading for 2 1/2 hours a day, and writing is an additional 30 minutes.
Students also study math for 90 minutes each day and have regular P.E., art and music classes, as well as hands-on learning experiences.
Students may participate in Student Council, Robotics, Summer/Winter Bridges, Boys & Girls Club, and Science Club.
