“Empowering students to succeed by excelling in attendance, achievement, and citizenship.”

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!

Programs

Reading and math are fundamental pieces of Evansville’s curriculum. To address the school’s reading scores, Evansville uses materials aligned to the Common Core working within the structures of whole group instruction, small group instruction and The Daily 5. Students study reading for 1 1/2 hours a day, and study writing for an additional 30 minutes.

Students also study math for 90 minutes each day using Bridges and have regular P.E., art and music classes, as well as hands-on learning experiences.  Every student has a minimum of 30 minutes of differentiated Intervention or Enrichment Time every day.

Activities

Students may participate in Student Council, Robotics, Art Club, Around the World, Science Olympiad, Summer Bridges, and Boys and Girls Club. Fourth- and fifth-graders may participate in volleyball, basketball and track through the Casper Recreation Center.  Students and their families are welcome to Evansville’s popular monthly family nights focused on engaging math, reading and writing activities.  Parents participate in the Power of an Hour program where they observe their child in the classroom for an hour in order to be able to work with classroom teachers to find ways to best meet their child’s needs.

Preschool

Preschool is available for students ages 3 to 5, with preference given to children from low-income families and to those with the highest academic need.

Hours

Classes at Evansville run from 8:40 a.m. to 3:35 p.m. Before-school activities and breakfast begin at 7:45 a.m., and an on-site Boys and Girls Club branch is open after school until 6 p.m.
