Grades K-6Evergreen's Visions Statement: Evergreen students can achieve anything they can envision. Our goal is to develop 21st century learners who confidently apply STEM skills and knowledge to solve meaningful problems and understand their world.Evergreen Elementary is our district's first STEM Lab school. After three years of intensive training for our teaching staff with professors from Western Washington University, we have taken the steps necessary to have a STEM focus throughout all grade levels while still providing students a well-rounded education.What is STEM? It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. There will be the same emphasis on teaching reading and writing, social studies, physical education, and art and music. STEM education works to increase student ownership of learning by encouraging a curriculum that is driven by problem solving, discovery, exploration and requires students to actively engage in a situation in order to find a solution. STEM philosophy makes science, technology, engineering and mathematics all play an integral part in the teaching of the whole.
While teaching reading and writing, art and PE– STEM supports student independent innovation and allows them to explore greater depths of all subjects by utilizing the skills learned and required for the global job market. All jobs are requiring workers to have a greater ability to think critically and to work as a member of the team and independently. Our students will be expected to use technology and mathematics as tools for problem-solving in their future careers. STEM instruction will support our students development as learners and problem solvers, giving them a great foundation for future career opportunities."We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future." ~Franklin D. Roosevelt 32nd President of the United States
