“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. To empower students in reaching their learning 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, writing, and math are fundamental pieces of Evansville’s curriculum. To address students’ reading, Evansville uses materials aligned to the Common Core including Wit and Wisdom, novels, reading passages and current event news sources.  This instruction is done within whole group instruction, small group instruction, and individualized instruction. Students study language arts for a minimum of 90 minutes a day.  Students also study math for 90 minutes each day using Bridges. Students also have learning experiences in our school greenhouse.  Every student has a minimum of 30 minutes of differentiated intervention or enrichment time every day to support their literacy and math learning. They also have regular P.E., art and music classes.

 

Activities

Students may participate in Student Council, Robotics, Art Club, Poetry, Jr. Robotics, Gardening, Nature, Step, and Cursive clubs. 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 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.
