You Make the World a Beautiful Place

At a school like ours, we rely on the parent involvement and volunteerism to make us great. Study after study demonstrates that active, involved and engaged parents make the greatest difference for children. The Evergreen School Parents Association (ESPA)  held its final school-wide meeting of the year.  Reflecting on ESPA’s accomplishments, it is clear that Evergreen would not be the place it is without ESPA’s leadership and all the significant volunteers efforts of our parents.  We all owe...

Celebrating Our Music Program

There isn’t a civilization in the world that doesn’t have its own musical tradition.  Why? According to Howard Sacks, physician, neurology professor at NYU and author of Musicophilia: Music can move us to the heights or depths of emotion. It can persuade us to buy something, or remind us of our first date. It can lift us out of depression when nothing else can. It can get us dancing to its beat.
